Step4: Buy E-6000 the glue that holds it all. (Michael's)
And VOILA- A multi-functional mini cake plate. I'm going to visit our local cupcake store and top my mini cake plates with single Holiday cupcakes all wrapped together in cellophane and a big red bow. Hello Cupcake places their cupcakes in clear single containers which will make this mini babe absolutely perfect. P.S. Next time I create these I will probably get shorter candlesticks.
Wouldn't you agree...anything MINI is always adorable!
Especially my MINI muffin Lulu.

Here's an idea. I took a strand of jumbo white globe lights and tied red tulle and mini ornaments around the cord. After looking at this pic it looks kinda dumb but hopefully the real thing is cuter??:D
Glass Jars-a staple decor piece at my house. I Had a third one with this collection but I just broke the dumb thing on Saturday~crap! BTW: Those are my children's art projects and if I grab another almondless Kiss out of that bowl I'm totally going to return them~rip off!
How come there aren't any packages under the tree for me yet? Oh yes, Santa picks them up on Christmas Eve.
What's your favorite Christmas decoration?
P.S. Be sure to check back tomorrow (maybe). I've got a clever THRIFTY gift idea for you! I have to make mine first though to see if it's gonna work~hee hee!

P.S. If any of you out there "stole by blog button" it was coded wrong. (oops!) I'd would greatly appreciate it if you would correct my mistake and re-steal my new button code. GRACIAS!

This is a glitter polish you can share with your daughter and not look like an eight yr. old. I'm LOVING THIS polish. Subtle glitter fun! Wear it alone or with a hint of color underneath.
THIS little cutie could compliment the polish perfectly. Who doesn't adore a lip gloss pot? So cute!

Every ugly sweater Christmas party has to have a white elephant gift exchange and a round of cheesy charades. The book is a totally innocent novel about wresting!
Plan your ugly sweater party today!
What we did: We met at our house, went OUT to eat (who has time to cook?!), came home and played cheesy games, served pie out of a box....EASY party fun!
Hope all who came had a good time. See you next year. And remember, all those ugly sweaters go on sale the day after Christmas. Or...you can just create your own~rock on puff paint!
Happy ugly sweater Christmas party planning!
