When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

It's all in the Presentation

I've had this project planned, and the ornament trees purchased, for the better part of a year but, as you all have experienced, sometimes the best laid plans, etc., etc., etc. ......
Actually, I did manage to get everything done according to plan, just took some shortcuts I hadn't expected to take. Due to circumstances, I skipped some of the "handmade from scratch ideas" and relied on K and Company punch out little purses and Christmas decorations. Thank goodness for that company cuz I probably wouldn't have been able to muddle through without them. They saved me tons of work and much back pain in the process, so Thank You, K and Company. You saved the day! Here are several pics of my finished trees using flotsam and jetsom from my stash to glitz them up. I figure if the gift can't be original, at least the presentation can. Hope these guys survive the trip through Priority Mail to their destination (with fingers crossed.)

The cone and little box are filled with Hershey Mint Kisses, at least they were, until I packed them. Now they're rattling around in the bottom of the box! That's okay. It gives my sis something to do when the packages arrive. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.
