Big Tree Defense 2
I remember when I first heard about this game back in November, I had an immediate "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality, assuming its release would keep getting delayed much like the show's 6th season. But alas, Project Runway for Nintendo Wii finally hit shelves March 2nd, and its arrival wasn't quite as manically exciting as I thought it was going to be. I don't know if its fashionable target market is just too engrossed in shopping, actually making their own real designs, or just watching the show itself, but personally I think this game looks too cool to overlook. Much like the show, "designers" get challenges -- like create a rockstar's stage outfit or revamp a high school uniform, for example -- and then get to create looks using a multitude of colors, patterns, and "fabrics" to compete in the catwalk showdown. There's even a Wii Balance Board add-on feature that allows you to play as your model and strut your designs down the runway! While I'm still curious as to how your creations are "judged" by e-versions of our favorite members of the PR panel, I'm still intrigued enough to check it out myself! It sounds almost like a fashion-relevant version of the Sims... which means maximum addiction potential!Price: $39.99Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add Project Runway for Nintendo Wii to the Hive.

There are many people I know who decorate with a holiday theme immediately after Thanksgiving dinner and then there are people who don't start until the last minute (aka the day before Christmas Eve). Either way, the tree is almost always the most important aspect of any Christmas decor. While some may argue the virtues over real versus faux trees, what good is it if it ends up totally naked? That's why I'm here with ornaments of all shapes and sizes that will get your tree totally covered up. From collectible limited edition Swarovski crystals to the cutest cow ornament ever, there's a whole world of ornaments out there. Add some DIY cranberry and popcorn garlands, tinsel, maybe some fake snow and you're all set to wait for Santa to deliver his presents. Take a peek at my slideshow to see them all!
