Beautiful Holiday Egg Art Ornaments...

Here is a unique gift idea I wanted to share, from a fellow work at home mom...beautiful ornaments made from real egg shells! Although made from egg shells, they all have coatings on them that make them just as strong as any glass ornament and some are even stronger than glass! There are glittered ornaments, silk print ornaments, smaller ones with other designs on them….and all at wonderful, affordable prices. Here is my favorite:

There are even more unique gift ideas to see on the website as well. Be sure to check it out at Michigan Egg Connection.

Christmas Tree Mishap...

My kids and I were really excited to put up the Christmas tree this year, so we got started on it on Thanksgiving. Our scrawny little Christmas tree has been a bit on the wobbly side for a couple of years now, but I was hoping I could make it last just one more season. made it through the night, but a leg on the plastic stand snapped and it literally came crashing down, ornaments and all, the next day, lol.

But I did get one last picture of it before it came to it's dramatic end. We have a little tradition...I hand the ornaments to my kids one at a time and they hang them. Well, my son Cody got bored after hanging only a few, so the majority of the first box of ornaments were hung by my daughter Abby, who is pretty tiny. I had to take a picture of the tree...I couldn't help but laugh at the placement of the ornaments. There are a few ornaments in the middle and at the top from when Cody was involved...but Abby obviously couldn't reach very high!

(And don't laugh at the extremely gaudy tree skirt...I just can't help myself sometimes! lol)

At least I had a good excuse to get a new tree. Here is our new, slightly taller, Christmas tree (after I did a little ornament re-arranging):
