First, I decorated my apartment with paper ornaments.These were super easy and cheap to make. I bought a few sheets of Disney paper, a few sheets of Christmas paper, and I was all set. Good thing I'm a scrapbooker and have access to things like paper trimmers and eyelets.

|these are easy and don't require eyelets like the other ones. check out this website.|

|these ornaments have been up for a while now. I'm very proud of my resourcefulness. I just happened to have the right size ornaments to create these Mickeys!|
|Notice that the swords are Christmas colored. I had to pick them out of the box which also had orange, blue and purple toothpicks.|
|Tiana made Christmas "Sticky Mickeys" - so cute!|
After everyone left I made the cookies that I had planned for all of us to decorate together but had given up on because the dough was so sticky. When I was still in the kitchen at 12:30am, I realized that, yup, this Disney blog has officially taken over my life! But um, at least the cookies turned out well!
|Yes, I did cut out stencils that spelled "Disnerd" in the Disney font to use on these sugar cookies. As if I needed more proof that I am truly a Disnerd.|
|Disnerd Christmas goodie bags, which I had to give out the day after the party. Good thing most of my friends work at the same office as me!|
|It doesn't float, unfortunately. But it does light up!|
I was exhausted at the end of the night but it was fun. Again, I enjoyed the opportunity to be creative. And I was excited that others joined in the fun by finding or making Disney-themed gifts.There's much fun to be had when you've got a theme and a small budget. :)
Have a Disnerd Christmas, everyone!
