Do you love seeing how other people decorate for Christmas? I especially love seeing how creative people decorate so I asked some of the Sulky family and friends to send me pictures and stories of how they decorate for the holidays. I hope you love these as much as I do!

A few years ago, Diane and her hubby were remodeling their home at Christmastime, so her husband made a Christmas tree out of Drywall! He painted in the colors they palnned to redo the house in to make sure they were the colors that they wanted to choose. How clever!

    Hi Kelly Love the pictures of how Sulky staff decorate for Christmas. We use the same decorations year after year. They are things that were gifts from our friends and family, from our children to us and even vice versa. Our two grown up daughters decided that their baby Christmas Balls should remain on our tree rather than move to theirs. So it does with memories of many Christmas as a family.

    I have a very small apt, and live alone, so my decorating is very simple, usually my collected-over-the-years Italian made Nativity figurines and the awesome West German solid wood creche I thrifted this year (finally found the perfect manger/creche, been looking for years!) Also my cherished tree ornaments, made by my son as a child, and grandchildren in their turn, straw birds found in Mexico years ago and gilded cardboard ballerina pigs from the circus museum in San Atonio, TX bought on a trip with friends. A few strings of lights and that’s it, but I love seeing other people’s more elaborate decorations, especially artistic and hand-crafted ones like the Sulky staff’s! Happy holidays!
