I know， I know…；…；what happened to Thanksgiving？!？!？ Well， I’；m not skipping it， just getting a little head start on my Christmas tree this year!personalised gifts
And that’；s because Michael’；s contacted me and asked if I would participate in their Dream Tree Challenge (#JustAddMichaels campaign) and decorate a Christmas Tree， using supplies from their store.？ Uhhhh…；…；”；YES， pretty please!”；？ No arm twisting here.？ Now that Halloween’；s over…；…；..I’；m itching for all of the Christmas love to begin.？ And hey， thanks to this little challengepillow shams floral， I’；ve now got a nice little kick start to my holiday decorating.？ (Come on guys， join me!？ It feels great!!)
So， I received my 7 foot pre-lit Willow Christmas Tree in the mail and headed to my local Michael’；s Craft Store (with a gift card in hand) and browsed around a while， trying to decide on vibrant colors or muted？？ Harsh textures or soft？？ Stars， angels， or a big bow at the top？？？ Hmmmmmm.？ I don’；t mind shopping one bit， so I browsed and browsed and browsed.
And finally decided on this：
A bit of sparkle， touches of soft， some rough， and pretty muted in color…；
And a sparkly gold star to sit on top.
To be honest， I have never filled up a tree so full of trimmings…；…；…；but once I started adding， I couldn’；t stop.？ And ended up loving all the details on my little tree.
And those two little “；rein”；deer are a welcome addition to our family.？ Chloe sneaks them and tries pushing them in a stroller， while Elli dances with them while singing， “；Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”；.？ I， however， like them to sit right by the tree.？ We all know I’；ll just “；pretend”； to notice the reindeer-napping…；..because the sneaking of the reindeer only means my girls are just as excited for Christmas as I am. ：)
And one little itty bitty confession…；…；.Christmas music has now been granted access to our home.？？ We try to wait until after Thanksgiving (which rarely happens anyway…；)， but who can decorate a tree without your favorite Music tunes？!!？ Not me.
And yes， she’；s just as beautiful at night.？ Ahhhhhhh…；…；…；.I adore the warmth of those lights， causing everything to glow.
Oh， little Christmas tree.？ I adore you.
And thank you Michael’；s.？ What a treat this was!？
(However， now my kiddos are asking me every hour how many days until Christmas.？ Thanks a lot!!! ；) )
Oh， and by the way， I’；ll be back later this week， sharing a little tutorial on something that I made using my supplies from Michael’；s.？ Yay!
And just so you know…；…；
Michael’；s supplied the tree and supplies to create a tree of my own choice， however， all opinions stated are my own…；…；.and I only promote products I love.？ -Ashley
Last night I used a few of my favorite Prudent Baby DIYs to give our powder bathroom a little personality. First I stretched a piece of Lourdes Sanchez Botanica Leafy Stripe Dove over a store bought canvas for a quick and inexpensive piece of large wall art (click for Wall Art DIY). And as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t nail a hole in my wall for just anything.Then I whipped up YET ANOTHER of Jaime’s Mod Podge Stools, this time with Lourdes Sanchez Botanica Large Floral Cream fabric (isn’t this entire collection gorg?!). I can’t get enough of these stools. I still want like three more. Apparently I love to torture myself by enabling Clare’s mischief. But I guess she is going to find her way on up on the counter regardless, so it might as well be on a pretty stool, right?
While still packed with the ergonomic features parents love (including curved straps, padded backs, and sized-to-fit proportions), the collection now uses recycled PET fabric — made from discarded plastic bottles and reclaimed poly.
Floral no longer has to mean chintzy. Floral no longer has to mean drab. Floral is now in fact a very contemporary and fashionable addition to your design scheme. The key to introducing floral effectively however is placement and scale. From a small cushion to complete lounge suite this article takes you through when and how to fashionably flower your home.
