adorable avatar, tex!
this is my 1st Christmas where i'll be decorating on my own. i'm going to get my decorations and stuff in a few days. i think i'll get little clear lights- smaller than the usual ones, and more rounded- for the ceiling. i'd like to make a design with them- something Christmasy but feasable- on the wall, too, in red. a star, i think. my Christmastree will be one with long, soft needles. know what kind i mean? that will be done in clear lights, too, with some little red accents and clear bulbs. my apt. is full of red candles already, so i might paint a few of those with a clear glitter. i have 8 in my living room alone. i don't have a mantle, but my windowsills are a pretty marble, so i think i'll hang stockings on that. other than that, i'll have to see. i'm not much for plastic decorations or anything. i'll look for subtle decorations with a theme. silver and red, i think.

Nothing up yet, but I'm having a Christmas party for my music students on Wednesday, so I'm going to put up our little table tree and the rest of the decorations here and there, then the big tree next weekend. There won't be room for them to perform if we put up the big tree in the living room.
