For the second year in a row with the North Iowa Bloggers, and third year in a row for me, I made a wreath as part of the Carlson Tree Farm's weekly Wreath Workshops. The Wreath Workshops begin in mid-November and wrap up in mid-December. They announce the workshop times and dates in the fall on their Facebook page and this year all the spots were filled in literally just hours! From an idea that started five years ago as a fun thing for Michelle of Carlson Tree Farm's Moms Group to do, to having 250 people participate this year, I'd say the Wreath Workshops are a success!

And why wouldn't they be? In an hour and a half you go from a wire wreath frame, to picking out your favorite combination of evergreen branches to clamp down on the frame, to picking out your favorite ribbon, cones, berries, ornaments, etc. to make the wreath personalized to you and your home. The atmosphere is casual, fun, and dare I be corny by saying merry! Cathy and Michelle of Carlson Tree Farm are great leaders in both stages of making the wreath and want to see you succeed and have a good time.

And I have to give a special thank you to Michelle of Carlson Tree Farm. The North Iowa Bloggers have changed a lot in the last year. There were a few of us that participated both last year and this year in the Wreath Workshop, but we were without some great members from last year - Beth Ann and Jeni who both moved to North Carolina and St. Louis respectively, and Amy who passed away in a car accident. Amy left an impression on Michelle, as she did with so many people, so she made a wreath for this year's group to decorate that was then donated and given to Amy's parents. This meant so much to all of the North Iowa Bloggers and Amy's parents. We had fun decorating the wreath with "Amy's style" and reminiscing about our dear friend.

So thanks to the North Iowa Bloggers and Carlson Tree Farm for helping me have a great time at a much needed Girls Night Out. Have you ever made a wreath before? What is your favorite "Christmas" Girls Night Out activity? Remember to Comment for a Cause!
