I made a Fireplace?

Since this is our first Christmas in our own place, with our own tree, I found it only fitting that we did the whole sha-bang! Our first one together, we were in different provinces! Our second one was at Rob's parent's house, where we lived at the time, and there weren't any decorations as it isn't celebrated as much there. This year we have our own place to decorate and do all the fun holiday stuff that we want! One of my favorite parts of Christmas was always opening the stockings and I realized last week that we don't have a fireplace to hang them from (just now, Nicole...really?) Yes, really. 

So I decided to make one.
It didn't take me long at all! I drank hot chocolate loaded with marshmallows in my elf boot mug (it's a MUST if you decide to do any Christmas crafting) while I put this together. I used some poster board and paint to throw this thing together! The lights at the top are stickers. I doubt that our stockings will stay up using thumbtacks, like the fireplace, so we'll probably put them on the floor when they're full. 
Our first Christmas in our own place, with a tree, sure is coming along and I can hardly wait! Only 21 more days, folks.
