Decorating the tree

December 13th, 2011

Christmas and Halloween always battle each other to be my favorite holiday and every year Christmas just barely comes out the winner. I think it wins because of the tree. I’m a collector of them. I guess you could say I take after my mom. Growing up I got my own full sized tree when I was about 13. My parents took me out and I bought my own ornaments and glowed with pride at decorating my very own tree in my bedroom. Every year we had 5 full sized trees and 5 half sized trees scattered through out our house. My mom changed themes often, santas, angels, bears, snowmen, nutcrackers…just to name a few. Even though I have 3 full sized trees of my own up this Christmas this tree is my favorite. There is something magical about twinkling lights.

Starting the Holiday season off right, with a Freebie!

I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone with a craft project. I’ve been LOVING the bucket lists on Pinterest but never found one that would be perfect for me. I also have been less that great to keep my Memories in Raw blog updated with all my gorgeous clients and with me closing my year, minus the newborn shoots I do, until the snow melts my poor photo blog is facing a very sad and loney holiday season. SO….I decided to 1: Make my own bucket list and totally tailor it to me and 2: I’m going to use it to help me create mini photoshoots to keep me creative during the winter and give my blog some TLC. So if I come to you asking to borrow your kiddos now you know why! :D So here’s what I came up with! And I love it!

If you’d like a copy of this yourself go HERE to download. I printed mine and framed it too, one Christmas decoration down! ;) You can also email me if you’d like the pdf version so you can customize the font, wording and even the placement of the trees and header! Here’s to a fun and busy holiday season beginning AND to keeping this blog updated!!
