Decorating for Christmas

Here is the wreath I am hanging on my door for Christmas. Michaels has a lot of things on sale and I had a rare coupon for 15% off the entire purchase including sales items, so I got a lot of good deals last night. I picked up the wreath, which had the large pinecones and pepperberries already on it, and enhanced it with some fruit picks, gold leaves and ribbon that I got at the dollar store. Now it is just what I wanted, a mix of natural materials and glitzy shiny stuff.

I took the week off from work to clean my apartment and start paring down my stuff in preparation for the move, but so far all I have managed to do is buy more stuff! I got some little glass drop ornaments at Target and I'm decorating my cheesy brass chandelier for Christmas with them and an extremely glittery leaf garland from Michaels. I need more bows but here is the basic effect:

So at this point, I have finished shopping for 10 of the 12 people on my list and everything I have is wrapped, I have planned for some crafts I want to do, cookies I want to bake, candy to make, and I started decorating even though I have not cleaned yet. So, essentially I have done the fun "work" and procrastinated all the not so fun stuff. (Plus now I am writing about it rather than getting started). So, I'm going to start cleaning now. Really. As soon as I get a shower.
