  • Hi Everyone!

    Christmas is my favorite holiday season! Matching PJs, Christmas crafts, Christmas themed meals, advent, driving around in Christmas PJs to see holiday lights, decorating the house, enjoying the Christmas tree....ahhhh, it's the most wonderful time of the year!!!

    As if that weren't enough, I just became addicted to collecting Christmas village pieces. I gave myself a budget of buying one building a month. I started in January (2016) and I already have close to 30 buildings and countless figurines. Oh no! Lol My next step is figuring out how to build displays for them.

    Anyway, I'm counting the days 'til we can put our tree up again. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to hanging out here.

            What happened to that one bldg per month budget? LOL. I love village displays. Hope to see yours when you get it set up this year. I wish I had room to display mine. I keep buying more with no place to put them. Welcome to ChristmasFanClub. Enjoy.

              I take it math isn't your strong suit? Thirty houses since January?

              I can't wait to see pics of your village.

                Lol. That budget went out the window, when I bought three houses in my first purchase. It got worse after the houses arrived and I REALLY saw how beautiful the pieces were! I bet you have a nice collection. Thank you for the warm welcome.

                  Haha, my math is strong. It's my self control that needs work. LOL

                  I saw your 2015 village. It's beautiful! I pinned a lot of your village pictures. Looking forward to seeing your 2016 display.

                    Welcome to the forum. Love your name.

                    I laughed at your comment about lack of self control. Boy can I relate.
                    I thought I would have a small village and boy it's grown rapidly. The problem is that with the never ending renovations I have not been able to set my village up. Someday I will be able to. I'm really looking forward to that day. But like JW said .. I keep buying more and more. It's an addiction. LOL.

                    I can't wait to see photos of your village when you set it up and the rest of your decorations and/or projects.
                    You'll find lots of good ideas on the forum. And nice people.

                    Prieci'gus Ziemsve'tkus un Laimi'gu Jauno Gadu! (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in Latvian)

                      Aww, thank you for the warm welcome and the compliment on my name!

                      It IS an addiction! Christmas needs to get here before my village gets bigger than downtown NYC. Lol

                      I hope you're able to setup your village this Christmas. I bet you have some beautiful pieces.

                      Looking forward to getting to know everyone and sharing inspirations.

                        Hi and Welcome to CFC!

                        It is amazing how one can get addicted to collecting decorations for Christmas. I have been collecting the Hallmark Star Trek spaceships since they came out, but only once a year. Hope you find the space to store and to put out during the holidays.

                        Glad you joined, I think you'll like it here!

                          Yeah, I'm going to find some self control from somewhere, because I don't want my display to get out of control.

                          Thank you for the warm welcome.

                            MerryMunchkins,

                            Control is something many of us have already LOST, LONG ago. The only time I feel like I'm really in control is when I am wearing that nice jacket that has the buckles in the back.

                            Welcome to the forum. I'm looking forward to seeing your 2016 display.

                            Cheers,
                            Terry
