Crochet Decorated Christmas Tree {Michaels Dream Tree Challenge}

Surprise Me!

I am so thrilled to be participating again this year in Michael’s Dream Tree Challenge. This year my tree is decorated in love and generosity (and some yarn)!

Crochet Decorated Christmas Tree

I decided a tree decorated only in crocheted ornaments would be amazing.  I knew I couldn’t do it alone, so I asked for help on facebook. I was overwhelmed by the response! Women that I have never met, never even chatted with online eagerly joined in. Daily my mail was loaded with goodies, so many beautifully crocheted ornaments. I can’t describe the love that poured out of those boxes and envelopes. I have had more than one good cry over this tree. To be part of such awesome warmth and kindness leaves me speechless!

We are donating our tree to a local Festival of Trees that auctions off the trees for a local charity that supports individuals with disabilities to live on their own.

Thank you Michaels for sending me one of your fabulous trees and allowing me to participate in The Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.

Disclosure – I received a pre-lit Christmas tree and gift card to participate in the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.
