Blogger has been having problems lately and I've avoided posting all weekend in hopes that they would have their photo-issues resolved but they don't.
So I've given up waiting and I'm now unveiling my new 9-foot creation! I'm done with my Peppermint Tree! I really do need one more bag of mints to finish the bottom, but I'm sick of it and I'm done. After sustaining 3rd-degree burns over 90% of my fingertips, my children were pointing candy canes at me and shouting, "Put down the glue gun and walk away from the candies!"
Now it's not exactly the Hollywood version I had envisioned in my mind, but I had to keep telling myself that I don't have a $10K budget - I have a $10 budget. (how embarrasing talking to myself like that at Wal Mart...people were staring...) So with a bunch of bows, peppermints and hot glue, this is what I got and I love it!
