Homemade Christmas Tree

Ok, I confess- we did not make the tree.
However, we did make almost everything else!

This is our almost completely homemade tree from last year.

There were only two ornaments (the blue snowflake and the angle) total on the tree that we did not make in the last week besides the candy canes =) Everything else, from the bow topper to the popcorn garland to the ornaments themselves were made by us =)

It was so much fun and turned out so lovely (the pictures don't do it justice) that we decided to make it a tradition =)

The angel ornament and candy canes we did not make- and the lights are attached to the tree. lol

About Me

My photo

I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!

This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
