Day Two is all about my Christmas Village. I am happy to report no extra supplies were bought to create this page, and I managed to do it in one day!
In my CLOSET OF NO RETURN, I have a box labelled Dec. 1. It contains the deocorations I put up early in the month - the advent calendar(s), Christmas card holder, and my Christmas village that I always put on the fireplace mantle.
Until this year. This year Gracie, one of our very naughty cats has taken to jumping onto the fireplace mantle. I can just envision her doing this when my village is assembled, and my little houses and trees falling onto the fireplace below, bursting into flames and causing unimaginable disaster.
So I have moved to Plan B, which is assemble the village on a small table in the den. This was not without it's problems either. I caught Gracie chewing on a tree, and William (her accomplice) with his paws under the tablecloth, searching for I don't know what. Hopefully my village survives the season!
Last night I finally figured out how to print pictures with my printer! However, I'm not really happy with the colour saturation or clarity, so I probably am going to have them professionally done, unless I discover a MAGIC BUTTON that says "Press here for really great photo printing".
Until we meet again...
