It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Thanksgiving is in three days, and we have our decorations, recipes and turkey hats ready. We鈥檙e excited to see our family and friends 鈥 and overindulge on pumpkin pie.

After we sleep off the delicious food, it鈥檚 time to do the dishes and then pick out a tree! Which means, it鈥檚 time to decorate again, y鈥檃ll!

Trimming the tree is one of the best parts of the holiday season. Store-bought, uniform ornaments are pretty, but what we really love are the ornaments that bring back memories. And those ornaments are usually the ones you got as a gift or the ones you made yourself! So now we鈥檙e giving you the opportunity to make new memories by creating some really unique ornaments this year.
