A few weeks ago, I saw a fantastic post about making ornaments from the slice of trunk that they cut from the bottom of your Christmas tree. I can't find the post now, but how impressed I was. What a clever and creative way to make memorable ornament keepsakes! I couldn't wait to make my own! And what perfect timing. Keith and I just got engaged, this is our first year to have a place together, and we just got our first tree. I decided to incorporate the engagement into the design by painting my ring. I wrapped it and surprised him with it the night we decorated the tree. I absolutely love it, and can't wait to continue this tradition year after year.
