Merry Christmas Eve....eve!

 This is the un-creepiest thing I have created all year.

Took 10 hot glue sticks, a Styrofoam cone, and 3.5 bags of peppermints to make this. I wish I had lined them up better but it was a good first run. Next year I am going to make a green one. Hope everybody is having as great a holiday as we are!

Our tree skirt runeth over with loot!
Archie hides among the present in hope that Lilly will not find him.
Lilly keeps plotting to take over the world while she systematically searches ever present for the hidden Archie!


  1. Wow, look at all those presents! Better watch out cause they are awfully close to the fire, don't want things melting;) Love the expression on Archie's face, wonder what he's thinking.

  2. Your peppermint tree is adorable! It already is Christmas Eve here so I'll wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!!

  3. have a wonderful holiday--looks like you're gonna' with all those presents under the tree. hope archie and lilly get lots of loot as well!

  4. love the peppermint tree! give the cats a Christmas rub for me.

    Merry Christmas, V.

  5. Even genius needs a break from "creepy stuff" every so often.
    Love the tree and wishing you and yours a great and safe holiday season!

  6. Merry Christmas to you all!

    I could just see my dog getting hold of that tree & licking it to nothing. On the plus side - fresh doggie breath!

  7. Funny story for you, just to illustrate how alike we are:

    I made a candy wreath one year and attempted to keep it because I loved it so much. The cat kept trying to get into the attic and I had no idea why- the candy attracted mice. Nothing quite as gross as mostly eaten candy surrounded by poop.

    May your Christmas be better than that. ; )

  8. Good job on the Peppermint tree! Just don't let your cats get near it. I imagine that could cause trouble, although I'm not a cat owner. Maybe they aren't even into Peppermints!

    Your presents look nice around the tree. I'm like you, in that I like to have all the packages wrapped and displayed before Christmas. It's nice to be able to sit and enjoy them for a while. Merry Christmas to you! :)
