I was very fortunate in that I got a handful of beautiful handcrafted Christmas cards this year. And I would like to share them with you.
Aren't they all simply gorgeous? And, am I not the luckiest?
Thank you so much, girls!
You make me smile.
Throughout the getting-ready-for-Christmas season, I had been running across some really cool ornaments on Pinterest. I fell in love with the look of these ornaments, and the surprising simplicity in creating them.
I spent Christmas Eve alone, and having worked (retail) all day, and I was really beat, I decided to have some personal fun.
The first one I made is the one in the foreground with the holly. Not really knowing what I was doing, after finishing this one, I discovered there was lots of room for improvement. I then made the green one. Still not perfect. But, they were cool nevertheless. On Christmas night I created the red and white ornament.
They were great fun to make. I will definitely work on some more for Christmas Future. Maybe we will put up a tree next year?
The cards you got are beautiful. I recognize the one Marge sent. I sat and watched her make it. The ornaments are cute. I've seen a few people post them.ReplyDelete
Your ornaments are gorgeous! I feel like they don't need nothing else to be perfect <3ReplyDelete

I made two of these with couple of bigger foam balls I had. The first one took me little longer than 2nd but both turned out pretty well. I'd like to make more next holidays.ReplyDelete
Your ornaments are very pretty, loved the paper you used. Beautiful cards you recieved, nothing like a hand made card to know somebody cares about you to take time to make it. Happy New Year
