So this year at MNHQ, we have gorn all out with the festivities.

Emoticons are live - fgrin we have some AMAZING competitions that only run for 12 days, so keep coming back on Mumsnet and on our Facebook page, we have vouchers, a holiday, a TV and A CAR to give away fshock so do go and take a look at both (that's 24 chances to win!), we have a naughty Elf on the Shelf playing up at The Towers, look out for the pictures..

...and last week we had a beautiful tree delivered into the office from The Good Elf .

But here's the problem, it's bare! fsad

We would love for you to send in your homemade decorations so we can fill our lovely tree and we will be giving some prizes for the "best".

We made an angel for the top of our tree last week and we hope that she will inspire you and help you to see what level of "best" we are working on fgrin

The Rules
The decoration has to be homemade.
It can be made by you or the DC or any family member.
Extra points are given for use of glue and glittery shit.
The tackier, the better.


Please send them into:
The Community Team
Studio 6, Deane House Studios,
Greenwood Place,
Highgate Road,
London NW5 1LB

And add a note with your posting name so we can find you if you are a winner.

Good luck and do check back for pictures, we will also be adding images to our Pinterest page, Facebook , Twitter and here on the thread over the coming weeks.

Merry Christmas fsmile and thanks to the Woolly Huggers for the bunting fgrin

What were the deleted posts all about?
I actually saw some actual glittery shit a couple of hours ago.
I went and did some domestic labour for a young family. I needed to go to the garden to empty some bins.
Their gorgeous staffy had done some plops which had gone mouldy. When I saw them there was a layer of mould then frost.
Pretty greeny coloured glittery shit.

"There is no way that's your supplies. Look at the bottle size. We all know that you only get your spirits delivered in gallon barrels."

That's pretty much what I said when they linked the picture on their facebook! grin

... working on my little creation as we speak and up to my elbows in card and glitter and glue - but if you are feeling pre-menstrual and need a little inspiration ...

My 5 year old is up for the challenge of winning me a car grin I'll open the craft cupboard and let him at it!

MisForMumNotMaid Wed 04-Dec-13 21:54:15

Ohh creative crafts for the weekend. DS1 would want to keep the car for himself though. Hope its made from Lego!

Mine is merrily shedding glitter and sequins all over Rebeca's desk.

I made a fairy for the tree. fsmile

And not only is it beautiful, it is functional. There's probs still enough washing up liquid in there to do Christmas Day. Nice touch I thought. Win, win.
