Christmas is coming up on us fast! Every one I talk to remarks at how quickly this past year became history. For many of you, perhaps it flew by because all in all it wasn't such a great year, but the holidays are upon us, and it is time to rejoice and celebrate life, love and family.
Last night I watched "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", and it never fails to take me back to when I was just a kid, and Christmas was everything. Believe it or not, I still get all choked up when the toys on the Island of Misfit Toys are lamenting the fact that its Christmas Eve, and Rudolph apparently didn't make it back to Christmastown to tell Santa about them.
The minute I hear the "ching ching ching ching ching" of Santa's sleighbells, that's it, and tears well up. I have so many wonderful memories of Christmas, 2 sets of grandparents for many years, mom and dad, sister, brother and his wife and kids and more presents under the tree than anyone could ever deserve.
Every year I work with several clients decorating their homes for the holidays. My clients are my extended family, and helping bring joy to their season is a wonderful treat for me. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favorite tips and tricks to make your holiday decor shine. I have also included some pictures of "Celebritrees"a fundraiser I chaired for The University of Texas Charter School. Every year I get requests to repost these spectacular trees, so here they are.
Now for the fun part!
I hope these tips are helpful as you decorate for the season. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or additions to the list.
