Once upon a time I thought it would be a wonderful experience to decorate a tree and put it in the Festival of Trees. It’s been one of my favorite holiday traditions for a long time, and since the Festival is a fundraiser for Primary Children’s Medical Center, it seemed like the perfect fit. Little did I know what I was getting myself into. . .
That’s why on Monday I delivered this beauty to the Festival. The theme is Butterfly Kisses, in case you’re wondering.
This is my second attempt at decorating a tree, and I think it turned out well. I was so very stressed on how to get my tree from looking like this
and turning it into something beautiful someone would want to buy. With a little maneuvering here, a bunch of butterflies from Hobby Lobby there and finally getting my ornaments figured out, it finally all worked out. I’m sure you can’t see inside the balls, but there are pictures of famous kisses.
Look it sold!!
Here I am with the finished product. And my roomie was kind enough to come help me finish it up and get everything set up on Monday. I very much appreciated her help because I was stressed about getting everything ready to go.
The spread that went with the tree. I guess I missed getting a close up of the other side. Dang it!
These are the trees my aunt and cousins made in honor of two loved ones who passed away earlier this year.
I was quite stressed about this tree, but in the end, it all came together. I’m grateful to once again have the experience of creating the tree, seeing it sold and knowing it will benefit someone else. It doesn’t hurt that I’m also doing it in honor of our beautiful angel. I hope she liked it too.
