Our Christmas Tradition DIY

December 23, 2014 2 min read

Tree Stump Ornaments Back in 1999 and in full renovations to our very 1st home we brought home our Christmas tree. Since my husband had is miter saw out he decided to cut the bottom of the tree as it as uneven, he cut an additional piece and a light bulb went off, he saw a tree stump ornament and thus started a new family tradition. Every year since 1999 my husband and our two kids Dezaray and Jordan would get all bundled up and go to the country and find the perfect Christmas Tree to cut down. One year this event took upwards of 2 hours (brrr) to find just the right tree. Up in the country where we live there was this awesome Christmas tree farm that had a secret fire pit where they sold hot cocoa and donuts under an umbrella of Christmas lite trees, it was truly magical. It was around this time back in 1999, that we decided to commemorate each tree. So we cut off a good piece of the bottom of the tree and wrote the year on it, it ended up being our way of honoring the tree and saying thank you for being our Christmas tree. Once we got each tree home my husband would cut off about an inch of the bottom of the tree and set it aside to dry out before writing the year on it. He would then drill small hole in it so we could add a string to hang it with. (you can shellac them once they are fully dried) This new ornament has become such a wonderful addition to our tree decorating each year. The kids (now 16 and 20) enjoy seeing the collection grow and remember each tree as they hang each specific year. The only year we are missing is 2003, that is the year we had a house fire and the only year we had a fake tree. But that is another story. Merry Christmas everyone, we hope you enjoy this family tradition of ours and incorporate it into your family. IMG_2096                                               IMG_2125 (2)

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
