Finally~~~My Christmas Tree and More Frames!

Hey Guys! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season!! I am...now that I can breathe! lol... I have been buried in decorating and frames! I apologize for just now getting this post up. I have been trying to sit down and update my blog for the past week but it just didn't happen. I am way behind now so I will be posting alot in the next few weeks! I still have houses to show you including my own (when it's finished) This is the latest I have ever put up decorations! Next year they will go up the first week in November. I took on two Christmas shows this year so that's what put me so behind. I can't complain though...I sold ALOT of stuff!! Yipee! Now it's time to enjoy the rest of the season...

Here is a picture of my tree all finished. As you can see it has a little bit of everything on it. I love snowmen and whimsical ornaments! I used the mesh all around the tree to make it look more full.

Here is the topper I tried to teach you how to make...lol. I hope you aren't more confused now on how to make a bow! I think some of you are...sorry about that. Maybe a video would be better.


Remember to check back often because I have alot more to show you! I will also be doing a giveaway soon!!

I wanted to get these frames posted in case you are needing a gift or are just now decorating like me! These are all ready to be shipped. I can ship them quick...there is a post office right down the street. I might even be able to ship same day! They usually only take about 3 days to arrive. They are all listed in my Etsy store.




I have done very well with these initial frames. I have several different initials in stock if you need one customized.





The bee and butterfly frames have been popular too. I can put an initial in them as well.

Well, I better get ready...I've got to get some of my Christmas shopping done today. I don't even have one gift!! I bet you guys have everything done. Have a great weekend! See you soon!!

Hi Kristen! I knew your tree would be one of the prettiest in blogland and I was right! So glad you can sit down and enjoy your Christmas now! Have a wonderful weekend...hugs...Debbie

Kristen the tree is fabulous. It must take ones breath away in person.

Debbie said...

What a beautiful tree. Your instructions for the bow was wonderful and I used it and made a pretty good looking bow if I say so myself. I can see why you did so good with your frames. They are Great!!

Melissa Miller said...

~GORGEOUS Kristen! Your festive tree is just so beautiful. I have been seeing the mesh everywhere in Blogland lately and I LOVE it! Where do you find it? We don't have a Hobby Lobby so do you think Michaels or Target carries it?

Love all your new frames too!
I may want that "M" for my guest room. It's perfect.

Enjoy the season! ~Melissa :)

PS Come and see my tree post when you have a moment. :)

Your tree is gorgeous, Kristen. I knew it would be stunning.
I'm behind this year because I went to see my mom rather late in the season and got behind. I'll try posting some pics soon.
Can't wait to see more posts from your decorating.

Your tree is GORGEOUS !! I love your use of reds and golds and the big sprays coming out. And, I'm also a big fan of the tule being used on the trees (I did that as well on one of mine.) Stop by if you get a chance as I've added my Holiday Home Tour ... have a great weekend !! Becca (adventuresindecorating1.blogpost.com)

Kristen, You are so creative and oh so talented. If I had a lot of money I would go broke buying all of those frames up for everyone I know. I just love them and they are sooo so Cute!! Have a wonderful Christmas. I love your warm and festive home!

Teri said...

I've been waiting for you to post photos of your tree. It was worth the wait. It's gorgeous! Thanks again for teaching us how to make a bow for our tree top. My daughter-in-law and I both made our first ones this year. We love them! Hopefully, I'll get photos up in time for the Christmas Tour.
Have a great weekend, Kristen. I love your blog.
Blessings,
Teri

Hi Kristen! Your tree is just beautiful! I love all your frames! You know I do! I've finally finished our great room/living room! and the kitchen and my entry way! Today before it started raining we cleaned up the yard and got the outside decorations up! But I've still got the dining room and the study!!!! Christmas is going to be over before I finish! Hope you'll post some more of your beautiful home! God Bless! Lauralu :)
