It's time to vote on the winners of Tip Junkie's 1st Annual Christmas Tree Contest! I hope that you've been inspired by these amazing women and their talents and gotten some great ideas on how to decorate your own tree.

It was terribly difficult to pick the finalists, there were so many fabulous entries! Thanks to all who participated.

I also hope that you've gotten some good gift ideas from our sponsors and their amazing prizes. A big shout out to them for making this possible. The finalists are:

Tree Toppers:

Sabra's Floral Tree Topper. She has detailed several decorating tips several of which I'm going to incorporate next year. My favorite is #4 stuff decorations inside your tree. A friend of mine just shared a tip where she stuffed poinsettia flowers around her tree. {{fabulous}}

Tiaras & Tantrum's Tree Topper

Taya's topper in traditional colors of red, green, and gold.

Lori's tree topper made from pics.

Themed Trees:

Mandee's theme is Nightmare Before Christmas. She used modge podge to paste images into wood to make the ornaments. Mandee is planning on attaching them to garland for Halloween next year.

Fostering Creativity gets a nom for having the most trees! Check out her post on all her themed trees from their Travel tree, The Carolina/State Tree, The Crystal Tree, The Wedding Tree, and Black & Silver tree (shown).

They have a tradition of buying an ornament on every trip they take so as they decorate their tree they remember where they've have been that year as well as years past.

Lisa's kitchen veggie/fruit tree.

Cecilia's Red & White beauty.

Nicole's Silhouette Tree and Diva tree's are amazing. She's also detailed tons of great decorating tips.

A Beauty To Behold:

Amber's Tree which has big paper mache letter initials.

Carrie's Romantic Keepsake Tree in Victorian-esque look of the gold, greens, pinks, and purples. Her tip, buy everything after Christmas.

Kari & Kijsa's "The Meaning of Christmas Tree" covered with crosses and tiny nativities and lots of glitter.

Jennifer chose the unconventional colors of bronze, chocolate brown, gold and deep cranberry for her tree.

Most Unique:

Marley's scrappy tree gets a nom for incorporating her scrapbooking passion into a beautiful tree.
