The stockings were hung...

I have needed one of these for a while.  We move so much and we never have a fire place to put the stockings.  Now no matter where we are we can hang them.  It makes me happy.  And my kids too.

More ornaments from ornament exchange

This snowflake came from Tiffany C. of Garland, UT. It was marked fragile and it had a big foot print on the package.  It broke a little but I fixed it and it is good to go.

This cool Micky ornament came from the Christa P. of West Valley City, UT.  She said this ornament is inspired by the fact that they are going on a Disney cruse in the new year.  Must be nice.

This little EWE was made by the host of the ornament exchange Wendy G. of Battle Ground, WA.  She is always so creative with wood.  You should check out her Etsy shop
I only have a few more to wait for.  
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas

Ornament exchange ornaments have started to arrive

So I have started receiving ornaments from the online exchange that I participated in.
This cute baby Jesus came from Nicole C, Boise ID. She makes them for her primary class every year.

This Reindeer is from Amy J., Syraouse UT.

 The penguin comes from Amy T. Rifle CO.
The tree is from Christie L. Spanish Fork UT.

The Snow flake is from Kimberly J. Tremonton, UT.  This guy came with Snow in a can. So cute.
This tree was made by a three year old little girl, Shaelee, Placentia, CA.  Some of the beads came off so my five year old helped me put them back on.  Now she says this is hers because she fixed it.

Whimsical Christmas Wreath

I saw a wreath like this one on  I had to make one.  I just loved that you used so many different ribbons.  Red and Green are my favorite Christmas decorations.  My lights on my house are mostly Red and Green.

You can not see them but I put a small strand of battery operated lights on it.  They are thin wire lights and they give it a nice touch at night.

Hudson Beach Glass Christmas Ornament #2

I am loving the Hudson Beach Glass Co.  I had to make another ornament. This one is my candy cane.

This is a hot place to stand.  My face turns red with in seconds.  I am sensitive to heat. But it is worth it.

Blow harder it is taking shape.

This is the first one I made two weeks ago.
I am hooked. I might have to go again.
