Pom Poms & Junk Food for the Holidays

With the return of my most excellent tree, giftmas has completely consumed my world again. I mean it. Andrew and I were in Las Vegas last year, so I guess this is me making up for lost time? Whatever the excuse reason is, decorating has been a top priority in the Santosquez household, specifically with pom poms.


...and I did. Well, more like 50 but for someone who has made two in her lifetime, that's basically the same. Our living room looks incredibly silly now and I love it.


One of my favorite new additions, other than all of the pom poms, is this precious baby I was too weak-willed to stay away from (of course I tweeted about that too). I did make it a full week before going back to buy him. No giftmas of mine would be complete without Dollar Tree decorations, either. The flocked hearts, adorable white trees, and the gingerbread man and cupcake snow globe (!) are all Dollar Tree purchases. All of my wrapping supplies, too!


The itty bitty junk food ornaments covering my Ikea tree were the inspiration behind the "stockings" I just finished making. Nothing like last minute holiday crafts to fill your time while counting down to midnight!


Now that they're filled and hanging over our "fireplace," Andrew and I are just about ready to start the unwrapping. Happy holidays, everyone!

  2. My goodness those pom poms are lovely! I wanted to go pom pom crazy this year but lost my clover pom pom makers somewhere in my last move and was too lazy to attempt them the old fashion way. Fraser and I are off to Vegas this year! Glad to hear we aren't the only two who have gone there for the holidays. Happy Xmas!

    1. Thank you! I don't have one of those clover gadgets but I definitely need one now. My hands were so sore by the 50th one! You two will love Vegas!

    1. It is! I found myself saying "one more" which would turn into "ok, just two more," and that kept going till I got to 50!
