Christmas Ornament Contest


Hard to believe that Christmas is only 7 weeks away. Last I knew it was still August. Since the holidays are coming whether we are ready or not, lets get a jump start and have some fun.

One of my favorite parts about the holidays are digging out my boxes of decorations. I love to reminisce about all the memories that go along with my collection of ornaments. Would you believe I still have some of the ornaments that I received in grade school when we would exchange with our classmates? One of my favorite ornaments is a felt stocking that was made by by cousin Marilyn when I was just a small girl. As soon as I get my boxes of Christmas decorations down, I'll be sure to show you.

That leads me to our ornament challenge . . .

Send us a picture of your favorite hand-crafted ornament to prairiepointjunction@yahoo.com by November 25th. Be sure to put "Ornament Challenge" in the subject. Let us know which category you are entering your ornament in.


We'll choose our favorite ornament from each category and the lucky winner will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to use on our site -- plus will have the honor of having their ornament picture posted on our blog. Enter as many ornaments in as many categories as you want.
