New Crochet Pattern – Little Colorful Christmas Trees

crochet pattern - little Christmas trees

Hi, dear friends!

Today I am very happy to present to you my latest crochet project – Little Colorful Christmas Trees!

Yay!

As the name itself suggests, these decorations are really teeny tiny and take very little time to make. I think they are perfect as a Holiday decor for your home or office and they can make pretty presents for your loved ones too.

So far, I have made eight and still plan to make more… there are just too many tempting color combinations forming in mind… so, beware, this is addictive!

In case you would like to try this easy project too, you can use my pattern to guide you along the way. It includes 40 step-by-step pictures to make the project as easy to follow as possible. You can find the pattern in my OWN SHOP or on Etsy.

And as usual, I could not resist and had to take a zillion pictures to share with you…

Beautiful Free Christmas Desktop Wallpapers

free-christmas-desktop-wallpapers

Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, Christmas is almost here!

And with it the time to update our desktop wallpapers.

As that is one of my most favorite things to do and I always love searching for new desktop backgrounds, I thought I could share some of my new finds with you.

So, if you are into that kind of thing, there are some really beautiful holiday images waiting for you HERE. They are in JPG format and work on all computers including Apple Macs.

And if you are a PC user, like me, you might like the festive Christmassy desktop wallpaper themes that are freely available from Microsoft (they work on PCs only). To activate them, click on the links below, and then (on Microsoft’s website) click the Download Theme button. Once the download has finished, simply double-click on the downloaded file in order for Windows to install your new desktop theme. (All three themes come with multiple desktop wallpaper images, Christmas sounds and colors! The themes can be installed on Windows 7 and Windows 8 computers.)

Decking the Halls theme
Decorating the Trees theme
Holiday Lights theme

Enjoy!

Love,
Petra
