Jen's Decorated Frosted Christmas Tree


In a previous post, I showed the DIY Christmas ornaments I made for my Flocked White Artificial Christmas Tree—super simple and festive!
This year, I combined my new DIY ornaments with some old ones from last year’s Scandinavian tree, and other decorative items.

Last year, I made my own Christmas ornaments, and I’m continuing the tradition this year. I created these three DIY Christmas ornaments to decorate my Christmas trees—super affordable, easy to assemble, and fun!

Celebrating Those Who Serve

This year’s Celebrating Those Who Serve Campaign was a huge success, with an overwhelming response from our military community from all over the country.
We now offer our heartfelt congratulations to the three randomly chosen winners of Celebrating Those Who Serve: Veronica Hunter of Florida, Kara Pieraccini of Texas, and Michelle Subbert of Minnesota.
Veronica Hunter’s husband has been on active duty for 25 years, often missing so much of their kids growing up. He has been away for many Christmases but this year, he is coming home for the holidays. With the anticipation of her husband’s retirement next year, Veronica wants to make this Christmas special as a “thank you” to her husband for all that he’s done for his family and his country. When asked about why he joined the military, Veronica’s husband says, “When you put on the uniform, you have a pride in knowing you are doing something to serve your country and hopefully making it better for the next generation.”

After 19 years of service, Kara Peiraccini’s husband was medically retired from the Marine Corps due to combat-related issues. After a rough couple of years, her husband is doing his best to get himself back to where he used to be and not let his demons get to him. Kara is extremely proud of her husband, and she nominated him to celebrate his service to the country and his family.
This year, Christmas will be more special for Michelle Subbert and her family—her husband will be home for the holidays! He has 26 years of service with the U.S. Navy, and is currently stationed in Millington. After moving six times in 11 years, their family finally settled down in Geneva, MN, but Michelle’s husband only gets to come home a few weeks a year. Over the years, he’s missed holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations, but they always make his visits more special by spending time with family and getting to know each other again. Michelle and her family are also awaiting her husband’s retirement next fall.
