December 10th: Triplicate Tree Trimmings

This gift already has a winner! Check the Decemberfest calendar for today's gift! 


Isn't it nice to start off the week with an awesome Decemberfest gift? Happy Monday, everybody! We're nearing the halfway point of Decemberfest, and we still have lots of great gifts to give away. Good luck to everyone who tries to win today!


Let's give some pine cones back to the pine tree.

This time of year, tons of people have pine trees covered with ornaments in their homes. One of the ornaments that rarely makes an appearance: the pine cone — the pine tree's most beloved companion. Thanks to Elizabeth, who runs Ornamentos, one lucky winner will be able to outfit their tree with a set of three handmade fabric pine cones


Three pine cones


Elizabeth creates tons of ornaments and sells them on her Jimdo site, Ornamentos. She said to me that one of her favorite things about making a site with Jimdo is that it's a totally different way for her to be creative when she isn't working on ornaments. I can say with certainty that Elizabeth is a lot more confident working on her website than I would ever be trying to make ornaments as beautiful as hers.


Whoever wins today's gift will have a beautiful addition to their tree — though perhaps it's wrong to say addition, because, like I said before, pine cones and pine trees go branch in branch. All you have to do to win is leave a comment below or retweet our daily Decemberfest tweet! See you tomorrow with another gift.
