Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs! I could not wait to post this because lately I have been noticing everyone’s amazing tree pictures. Earlier tonight I posted on my facebook page that I was doing a post on Christmas trees and I got ton’s of pictures sent to me. If for some reason you send me a picture after I post this don’t cha worry, I will add it in!

I am very pleased to start off my Christmas tree post with this amazing tree. My friend Stephen Brown (you might remember him from craft wars on TLC) sent me this and my mouth just stayed open for about 46 seconds. You see that little gingerbread house under the tree?  Yes, this is in his fabulous home. I am just going to pretend that is my house and I live IN his house, in this little bitty house… Did I loose you yet?  It’s okay because I lost myself, haha! Make sure you visit his website to order all of his “GLITTERVILLE” items. He has ton’s of Christmas ornaments that you will go crazy over.

I am loving my girl Meg Allan Cole’s tree! Is it not the best tree ever! It’s all about DIY and that is what I love the most! Check out her awesome blog HERE where you can see the full tutorial on how she made this retro tree.

I love the simplicity of this tree from Virginia at LiveLoveDIY. It looks like it came strait out of a magazine!

This amazing tree is from Lindsay Trahan Adams with Periwinkel Pink Gifts. I feel like I just stepped into a Gingerbread home… I love how it’s all red and white. Very festive!

 This is the tree of a friend of mine Ashley Matte. She is a really famous country singer!!! I love how she brings a little Louisiana with her everywhere she goes! I love the brown, green and red ornaments! Make sure and check out her site by clicking on her picture!

This is my friend Rosa Clifford’s tree. I met her through Martha Stewart and I am SOOO thankful for this! She is the sweetest person in the world and her tree is just as sweet! Check out her website HERE, she makes the BEST cards ever.

Seriously how cute is this tree. I love how she made this out of drift wood. Check out Karah’s blog The Space Between for more great ideas!

I have always loved shades of blue on a tree. It just looks magical! This is from Barbara at Chase the Star.

Roeshel from the DIY Show Off did it again! Can you guess what my favorite thing about this tree is? How she wrapped the base of the tree~ It looks like she went in the snowy forrest  cut it and wrapped it up to put in her house! Love the red flowers in it also!

Sue made me so happy when she told me she was putting up a tree this year. It had been 4 long years since she put a tree up! Check out her site here!

The first thing that I thought of when I saw this was WOW, that is HUGE! I am really into colored lights lately so I appreciate that she has red lights tied into her white ones! Check out Cheri’s blog, It’s So Very Cheri.

This is another room that I just can stare at. I love how clean and crisp everything is. This is Cynthia Weber’s tree, who is an amazing interior decorator! Check out her blog HERE!

I always love when I see red ornaments. Maybe it brings me back to that picture in my head of what Christmas is… You know, the red and green picture. Heather from Setting for Four completely brought me back! She has a great blog so I suggest checking her out!

All I will say is WHOVILLE. I want to move there and put this tree on the top of my house!

Another one of Lauren Rippon Michael’s trees! Yep, she has two in her house. Don’t we all strive to be like her!

What I love most about this tree is the stand it is in. It’s not a traditional stand and I actually love that you don’t need a skirt around it. Very creative!

If this tree doesn’t make you want to get UP and dance then I don’t know what will. I love how bright it is!

I am really loving this silky ribbon around this tree. It’s a great way to add some depth to a tree. Good to fill spots on a real tree also.

When I saw this tree my heart melted. I love anything black and white. I especially love the checkered wrapping paper!

The one thing that caught my attention here was the feathers hanging! What a great way to dress up a tree.

WOW! I have never seen a silver tree before. I might have to put this on my list to get for next year. I love how bright and whimsical this tree is!

I love the red and green glittery ribbon on this mini tree!

I have to say I am very impresses by this tree! I love the ball garland all over it!

I have always loved white trees. They really make all of your ornaments pop.

I hope you enjoyed this post Jaderbugs!

Don’t forget to make it a DIY kinda day,

I am truly in love with this CHEAP stick painting craft.  My crafty buddy Stephen Brown has a lot of “black and white” stripes in his new book Glitterville’s Handmade Halloween: A glittered guide for whimsical crafting!

So, I figured I would do the same thing using sticks or branches. It really is so much cheaper than buying things in the store and it adds that whimsical touch to your home! Stick Painting can be very addictive so be careful, haha! I love to decorate my home or any space I visit with painted sticks. You can spray paint a ton of them one specific color and stick them in a gorgeous vase. That would fix any home decor problem and it is practically free. Unless you go steal the sticks from your neighbors yard because you can’t even keep your own trees alive.

Quote of the day: 

“I am BOLD enough to say, though not in a literal sense, that I almost prefer striving without success to success without striving.” 
-Georges Vanier

  stick painting

Let’s get started…

INGREDIENTS:

*PAINT

*BRANCHES or STICKS

*PAINT BRUSH

The first thing you need to do is squirt some paint on a saucer.

Next you will paint black stripes around your branches. I like to hold my brush on the branch and just slowly spin the branch.

After you add your black add your white! It’s that simple.

Huge Glittery Hugs, Jade

Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs! I made this fun printable for you today! Wanna know the great thing about it? It’s FREE (insert happy dance).

I love the background I made because it’s so bright, fun and whimsical! I had to add a little “glitter” in it because let’s face it…Life is so much fun with glitter in it and it might have something to do with this amazing book that came out today!!! Don’t forget tonight is the finale of TLC’S Craft Wars. There will be 2 episodes back to back. Check out how you can win over $800 of craft supplies HERE.

I am so excited,  I will be doing live tweeting of the entire event so follow me on twitter!
