A Hickman Christmas...

The Christmas season has finally arrived, and has made it's way to the Hickman Household! Last night Russ and I decided it was about time to brighten up our little house and Electric Avenue and bust out our Christmas decorations!

I just love the Christmas season...don't you?! There's just something so warm and cozy about Christmas lights and brightly colored decorations...makes my heart smile! I've been wanting to do some Christmas crafting for the more personal touch...so we got out our craft glue, sequins, and ribbon and crafted away...

One of our crafts...Christmas Tree pine cones!

Laura from *ellatrain knits* sent me a link to this Christmas ornament craft. Just a quick tip...the smaller the scraps the cuter they look!

Russ' sequin ornament...I love it when my hubby wants to craft with me :)

My sequin ornament...I went for the more traditional Christmas look.

Saw this cute idea for a tree topper on Marthastewart.com a couple years ago, and have wanted to try it out ever since! I think it turned out pretty darn cute if I don't say so myself...ha.

Our little Christmas tree, decorated just the way we like...with lots of random ornaments! Craft night is tonight...so we'll be filling it up even more with our crafting!

Stay tuned tomorrow for pictures from our craft night holiday party! For those of you in the Nashville area, If you'd like to be added to the craft night email list, shoot me an email at jilllouisehickman@gmail.com and let me know!

Happy decorating!
