    i am making my other half a decoupage christmas tree. He hates Christmas and tolerates it at best, so i'm bringing a comic book based christmas tree ..here's a few pics . I'm off sick at the moment, hence how i have so much time on my hands

    oh darn, let me work out getting pics up. will be of the tree, some cut outs i backed in cardboard to make a comic based garland, and one superman/batman for my secret santa. i bought him each in the tiny lego characters and a Dvd - Spaced. I'm not partaking in presents this year, so it's the first and only one I'll buy I'm sure he will know it's me, and think i'm bonkers

    Ha ha so relieved! I've still got some that son left at home over 10 years ago. He still asks me if they are in the loft.... (so tempting when I decluttered!)

    eta: Just realised that mum2one already answered you

    BTW, I asked in Debenhams if I could recycle one of their Christmas wrap boxes, and they gave me one! It was at the end of the day, and I maybe caught them off guard!
