I especially like to add pictures to my tree so I can see how everyone changes through the years. Then, when I am putting up the tree each year, it is like a big ol' reflection of years past!
The ones I made for our tree this year look like these...It's like a throwback to the scrapbookin'. And I so love it! I just need to carve out a little time in my days, that's all. Yeaaaahhhh, right!!
Remember when I made a whole bunch of these with jake on them? I also have a Hunter and Hayden big wooden star on my family tree!
These stars come from Michael's. And I see them there every year! I simply trace it on scrapbook paper, cut it out, and use Mod Podge as a glue to adhere it. Add the pictures, stickers and anything else you may want to add, then Mod POdge the top of all of it. I usually like to ink the edges of my scrapbook paper and then sand the edges a little too before the top coat of ModPodge. That's it!
The girls have been helping me with this year's ornaments!We made a few for our DeeDee and Granddaddy in Orlando!
I have mailed a few of them out, but there are more to come. I hate that we don't get to be with all of our grands at Christmas!
So we work diligently to make them know we are thinking of them and mail them goodies regularly.
