To avoid end of semester work I decided to throw a Christmas party. This was the first year I had a whole apartment to decorate so take a look:
For decorations I made paper chains out of a holiday JCrew magazine and added newspaper snowflakes using soda can tabs as hooks.
For added festivity I went out into a mysterious wooded area behind my building and cut greens and bittersweet. As for food my roommate and I made reindeer cookies, and peanut butter cup peanut butter cookies. I also made guacamole because everything is way better with guacamole. It’s not in the photo below, because it’s shy and also I forgot to take it out of the fridge.
For invitations I again took inspiration from Kerry at the Tragic Whale with her homemade present tags. I had made a holly stamp last year, but of course threw it out once I was done. The new version of the stamp was made with an eraser and a kitchen knife… and amazingly I still have 10 fingers!
I obviously have no pictures of the actually party since that would be logical, but here is one from before the party of our two fireplaces! Few places have a need for that much fake warmth.
If you wish you had a TV that doubles as a fireplace check out the movie on netflix “Fireplace for your Home” There are two episodes.. I like the first one best, but you can spend hours watching it by yourself to decide.
And no party would be complete without a snow globe of me in the bathroom.
Doesn’t it make you want to pee?!
So it is getting closer to Christmas and I am officially getting in the spirit. So here are the holiday-ish things I’ve been doing.
I made a wreath at a program in the dining hall:
And then I made gingerbread houses at another program:
(the other one was less pretty, so I didn’t do any pictures focusing on it.)
Also, I got this puzzle of a nice winter scene, it may not be snowing yet, but at least it is in puzzles:
Oh and of course, no holiday would be complete without a disgusting amount of dreadful christmas movies. So I have already watched Snowglobe and Christmas Cupid. They sure were something:

1. Make the plot be about Christmas
2. Get former child star.
advice: avoid meth addicts. try former cast of Full House or Step by Step
3. Add quirky common characters.. example: the mother in law who just wont leave, the neighbor who keeps bringing cookies, the Santa who is stalking the main character.
4. Ask cast to share boring stories on set, so the viewer can feel like they really know the cast.
5. Put in large amounts of product placement for kitty litter or dog food (know your audience).

I am thankful that Hallmark starts their Christmas movie marathon November 12th.
I am a hundred percent sure that The Christmas Card will change my life.
These are 5 throwback items that you could buy people for Christmas if you had an irrational amount of money that you could only spend at Urban Outfitters.
It’s like a real camera except it can’t take photos, it doesn’t actually have a flash, and the yellow handle thing probably wont fit around your wrist.

Sometimes I ask myself, if only my cell phone could have all the benefits of an iPhone while still being clunky and hard to carry around.
80s Cell Phone Case
For this one I had a ton of mean jokes planned, but it turns out some percentage of the sale goes to Project Linus, which gives kids blankets. That model sure looks like she’s thinking about the children.
In the event that your iPhone doesn’t attract enough attention add this lime green phone to your phone. Added bonus, it is even more obnoxious than a bluetooth.

Because you have been wasting all of your life without Kevin Bacon on your bubblegum pink shirt.

Put The Lights on The Tree
