I really meant to start making some Christmas presents for some friends and family but I got sidetracked...I got the opportunity to make a fabulously tacky Christmas party dress for someone and I couldn't resist. I didn't realize at the time that it would take me about 4 days to finish it or that my living room carpet is now possibly permanently embedded with glitter, sparkles, and other bric-a-brac that is a casualty of my creation.
I got the dress at a thrift store for less than $5 and picked up the ugly Santa head and gold trim at the Dollar store. Most of the remaining bits were stuff I had in my stash! Pretty awesome if I do say so myself...my only regret is that I couldn't somehow fit in working Christmas lights. I found some at the grocery store yesterday but it was about $8 for a relatively short strand and my budget wouldn't allow it.
Ok, now on track to start some Christmas crafting for my nearest and dearest now!
