I'm so bowled over by your comments. Thank you everyone. I will not be able to respond to everyone of them this week but I love hearing from you and especially those who have been reading my blog but haven't commented before- thank you! You all inspire me! I'll be stopping in to the blogs where my giveaway is posted today.
I think I've got some fun prizes planned this week. And this week of prizes is open to everyone - international.
Today's featured prize is 2 things. One of the house ornaments I made, pictured above, and . . .
one of these very fun fabric Christmas trees. So both items will be in this prize, if you win and you could pick this.
I first saw these trees on Whip Up Blog. If you don't know that blog - bookmark it. It is a good one and full of so many fun projects. The Whip Up blog was featuring an idea from The Small Object blog. As soon as I happened on this tutorial/free pattern I knew I wanted to make these trees. They are very quick, easy and delightful. I thought the top needed something special so I added some buttons on them and used fabric for the trees that some of my friends have given me. (Thanks again girls.) I did enlarge the pattern just a tad because the originals are tiny. You really could make the house ornaments and these trees any size by just enlarging the patterns.
