Honking Big Balls and Deers that Do It

It's almost blasphemous, I know. It's sort of hard to tell, but these are honking, big balls that I have on my Christmas tree.  They started getting bigger a few years ago.  I discovered that the bigger the balls, the less I needed to decorate the tree!  Hmmmm.  I was a convert and began to confiscate ANY big balls I could find!  I have a tripped-out tree.  The family gets a kick out of my honking big balls.


Some people bake cookies; I like to make my Christmas cards almost every year.  This year I got this deer stamp, and thought it was so cute--until I saw that randy look in the deer's eye!  Hmmmm.  Now I have a different idea of these reindeer.  oopsey.

This one is for Auntie Julie~

Happy Holidays everyone--see you after the New Year!

  10. wonderful card! it brings back memories....there was a group of nerdy-techy guys in high school who made a deer stencil and modified all the 'deer crossing' signs in town. it was a scream!

    here's a deer related you-tube link - not for the faint of heart:

  12. i love those big balls. and your art work is stupendous.
    this year I used all my big loud uncool lights on my tree. (Well I guess the pine cone ones even Martha might use, but none of the others definitely). Dh was so happy.
    Big balls would have been the finishing touch. Ah next year.
