Another search for something to show you today yielded this...not very exciting perhaps and not a great picture, but desperation is as desperation does!!
|and I noticed, after I took the picture, that one of the|
beads on one of the ornaments is crooked. oops!
Every year I create a series of ornaments for gifting; some are gifts in and of themselves, and others are used as 'bows' on other gifts. These are two of the ones I made this year...no two were the same (as is the case of real snowflakes!). Even better was that all the raw materials came from my stash so they cost me nothing (shhh, don't tell!!). Tutorial for these can be found HERE. These were really easy to make and a couple of evenings in front of the tv created all 20 ornaments that I needed.
Now for some more mumblings....
- I think THESE look so pretty! Both lit and unlit.
- THIS made me smile and I think you will too.
- No pattern for THIS, but it's just so darned cute that I had to share! And don't you know at least one person that would laugh at one of THESE? (be sure to scroll down). For the cat lovers, go HERE.
- I came across THIS idea and had a 'why didn't I think of that' moment....and, even better, it's a great stash buster!
Today your quote comes from an anonymous source (but thought to be from the heart of a 7 year old)...."Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen"
