Pretty much my whole life I’ve had a kid Christmas tree: unmatched ornaments from all different places, macaroni construction, lots of pipe cleaners and blinking lights. The past couple of years Monkey Boy couldn’t be trusted not to mess with the tree, so it was lights only. I actually kind of liked those trees the best. Very simple and pretty. This year, for the first time, we’re having two trees. I can’t bring myself to get rid of the kid tree, but we have enough space in this house to add another: a grown up tree.
I may be crafty, but when it comes to this sort of thing, I’m lost. I tried to go to the store to look at decorations and got so overwhelmed, I left. My friend Andrea has been crowned “Queen of the Glitteratti.” She is amazing at this sort of thing. I begged her for help. She met me at a store and did a “Lunch and Learn” on Glitter Festivus decor. She helped me make selections for my grown up tree and then pushed me out of the nest to get my sparkle on.
In this season of giving, my gift to you dear reader, is Andrea. I brought my Flip Cam along so you too can be a Glitteratti. Here are her instructional videos:
