I Was Smitten with Mittens!

Hello Stampy Friends!
I simply fell in love with the Smitten Mittens Stamp Set and matching Framelits!  I made a zillion cards with them and ended up making almost ALL of the ornaments and decorations for my Christmas tree, too!  Yes, I realize that I can be a little bit obsessive when it comes to my Christmas tree!  When Charlie and Taylor quit even pretending to do any more to help me than getting the tree out of storage for me, I set myself free to do whatever I wanted with it!  I love having a theme, finding or making the ornaments, and decorating it (and wrapping the gifts to match) .  P.S. I also wrap fake gifts so that the tree won't be lonely before the shopping gets started...

I decided on Real Red, Basic Black, and Whisper White as the main colors with accents of Pool Party.  I even found some Pool Party ribbon at Michael's that had shiny Real Red polka dots!  I ordered some small wooden embroidery hoops on Amazon so I could create some faux candlewicking ornaments.
