Mistletoe Marketplace 2013

Hey!

Yesterday, I spent the morning at Mistletoe Marketplace.  I look forward to this event every year.  I love seeing the decorations and doing a little shopping with a friend.  Usually, I take the opportunity to start some of my Christmas shopping but yesterday, I shopped for me.

The money raised from this event goes back into the community to fund projects for children like a Children’s Cancer Clinic and a summer camp for the under-served.   Over 150 vendors from across the country set up booths in our Trade Market Center.  The theme this year was “Be Merry” and the colors were bright pink, turquoise, lime green and bright blue.

I thought you might like to see a few pictures to get your holiday ideas flowing.  I saw many DIY possibilities. : )

These snowball trees would make excellent DIY projects.

I apologize for the blurry shot but I wanted you to see the reindeer up close and this shot was the best of the bunch.

Are you ready for the holidays?  What do you like to do to get in the holiday spirit?

Blessings,
