I want to see a picture.


That is an impressive amount of ornaments. My kids get several every year so that they have a start for their Christmas trees when they are adults too. One day they'll appreciate all the handmade ornaments I'm doing, right?!


Katrina, What a neat tradition. My mom did something similar as do I. Except somehow we got on the kick of buying ornaments to commemorate the Halloween costumes my kids wore. So we have a chile pepper, Strawberry Shortcake, a ballerina, a vampire (yah!), Optimus Prime (Transformer) and even Ben 10. And I had to make my own Pokemon ornament from a stryofoam ball and sequins because there are no ornaments.

Great post. Please do post pictures. Much is expected of the tree's durability!

Katrina Kittle

Thanks, everyone. I don't have any good digital pictures of her tree, can you believe that? I'll get on it...but she's a little behind this year and so far only about half the ornaments are on. Kristen, I'm sure your kids will appreciate the handmade ornaments, and Nicole--I LOVE the idea of commemorating the Halloween costumes. What a great, creative idea.

Shannon Kittle

I can picture it. And I can just imagine her as she is hanging each one and telling the story that is behind each and every ornament. We are doing the same thing for our little one too. I would love to hear all of these stories and hear her tell them. I hope one day I can have 1027 different memories to recall.

Love ya!

Too bad there's no picture of that amazing tree! I love ornaments! I adore decorating the tree with native ornaments- it gives it a new feel, that the usual flashy glass and silver and gold modern ornaments do not have- I guess it is all about the shapes and colors- I mean, what is there more to ornaments? hehe :)

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
