It's finals week!!!! The most stressful week of the year. Ugh.
I spent almost the entire day weaving a tapestry for my crafting final, while watching DVR'd episodes of Martha. My lower back hurts from leaning over the frame for 7+ hours but, it's finished! I'm not completely happy with the proportions of the tree but, we just had to showcase the methods outlined in class. I took on a little more than I could handle or was necessary, but that's what I do. Overachiever.

Our vintage shower curtain came in the mail today, so I took a few minutes to hang that up and put out a few more decorations. My house is being overrun by red velvet-y deers and tinsel trees!!!!

Now, I'm going to sit down with our box of Christmas cards and a glass of wine. Maybe return a few e-mails????

What have YOU been up to?

Love the little cross-eyed deer! That's probably what I would look like if I'd spent hours and hours working on a Christmas tree tapestry!
