Felt Christmas Tree

Wow I can't believe it's almost been about a year since I've written! Crazy! But, that's life for ya!

Since December 2011 my daughter turned 4 and my soon turned 1! We also found out we may be moving to Maryland this next spring! We'll know for sure next month and I can NOT wait to find out! We are really hoping we get to because we'll be SO much closer to our home town, where about all of our family is. After that news, at the end of August we went to Michigan to visit my father-in-law and for a NASCAR race! Then as usual we went to New York to visit our family and I was in my cousin's wedding! I'm so happy I got to be there for it. While we were gone, I went back to college so I can graduate with my Bachelors degree here and not have to deal with transferring again. The semester officially ends Friday, December 14th! I took 5 classes all online since with our trip home I was gone the first 3 weeks of school. 2 down, 3 to go!

Although I haven't made anything really of my own yet, yep I'm still a Pinterest addict ;) After making a project last night I thought about this blog and wanted to get back to writing.

Now to the craft! Here is the link I got the idea from,  Play Felt Christmas Tree & Ornaments.

I bought 1/2 a yard of green felt, thought it would be decent, well I should have gone with the full yard, ah well, next year I'll get the yard. So, I did as Natalie did and cut the green felt into a triangle for the tree. I don't have any spot where I could use hot glue to hold it up on a wall so I used my Stampin' Up Tombo to glue the felt to some poster board I had. Since my tree is smaller I decided to not make presents this time. All that matters is that my daughter loves it! :-D Oh and yes I know my snowflake is pretty sad, haha! It was hard trying to cut it with the large siccors I used, don't ask me why I didn't use my nice Stampin' Up Snips =P

With the felt i have left over I'm thinking of making something for St. Patrick's Day. Plus that's my daughters birthday so I have to try even harder to go all out ;) Either way I want to try these Christmas Felt Button Trees

Nothing fancy, but quick to make, cheap, and easy entertainment :) Soon I'm going to share my friend's cozy coupe makeover! Wait til you see it! :-D
