Christmas in July - Day two

Missie's theme today is all about the Christmas Tree, baby.

How about this edible gingerbread tree from Martha Stewart. Beautiful and delicious.




I love these paper trees by Split Coast Stampers!




Now for the ornaments. And I think the blog police are going to be after me today - I have an ornament idea (in photo format) that I saved last year before I knew anything about blogging or sharing and I didn't save where it came from in the photo title. Ugh! *kicks self* So if you recognize it, I would be ever so grateful if you'd let me know.

I know many are in love with the Elsie Marley version of this, but I actually stumbled across these little guys first. They were machine embroidered, but I think it's possible to to something similar with felt pieces. At least we shall see! I'm going to try it later this week. :)


Last year I made some woodland snowflakes to decorate the tree at a friend's house - free and fun!


My snowflake garland is coming along - I'm hoping to have it finished soon so I can share it!

And who doesn't want some hot chocolate after all this Christmas talk?

I LOVE your woodland snowflakes! How fun. I have made the popsicle stick ones with my boys and let them add glitter, which of course they loved, but these are super fun!

TFS,
