Weekend Wrap-Up – and $100 Michael’s Gift Card Giveaway!

It’s Friday!!

Welcome to the Weekend Wrap Up Party!!  

This week’s giveaway is from

Michael’s Stores!!! 

I’ve been trimming my tree with decor from Michael’s … and to help get you started with your tree-trimming,

this week you can win a $100 gift card from Michael’s!

Michael’s asked me to participate in a Holiday Dream Tree Challenge, and

I’ll share the whole tree with you early next week.

But in the meantime, I have a little sneak peek and project I made for my tree:

Read on to find out how you can win — and link up your projects!

Michael’s was kind enough to send me a tree and a gift card to get me started, and I want to share the love with you.

We’ve had a great time getting started on the holidays with some early tree trimming.

I found an unfinished crate at Micheals and instead of a tree skirt, I am using this crate. I painted it, sanded it, added a little stain, stenciled a little saying on it and then attached some pom pom trim and some little wheels.

Michael’s will be featuring the trees created by creative bloggers on Facebook , Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube.

(And I’ll share mine with you next week).

In the meantime, check out Michael’s Holiday Lookbook online. It’s fun to look through the site and see what ideas you can get — and, to make your decorating easier, Michael’s chose four themed collections to help you get started:


Cedar Lodge Collection

Crystal Elegance Collection

Frankincense Collection

Jingle & Jolly Collection

Here’s how to enter to win a $100 Gift Card from Michael’s:
