On to Christmas!.........

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are recovering nicely from your Thanksgiving!  We are beginning to come out of our coma and move on!  The house was overflowing with hungry people and we had a lovely time visiting with them all!  Now it is time for round two to begin.....Let the eating begin!  I just love this time of year!  So much to see and do and many new recipes to try!  I love homemade candy and this is the perfect time for it!


I want to share a couple of ornaments I have made for my tree this year!  I usually try to make one or two each year.  Our tree has very tight branches, so many little ornaments are just the ticket!  I won this JustRite Groovy Snowman Set from Joan's Gardens.  I entered her weekly challenge and this was the gift she sent!
I had borrowed this set, because I love it so much, and now I have my very own!  I stamped onto watercolor paper using Memento Rich cocoa and colored with Ranger distress Inks.  I added some Frosted Lace Stickles for some bling and then glued onto some of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fragments charms.  I used Glossy Accents to glue and then cut out around the charm.  I think these are such a cute idea if you need small ornaments or little hangers for gifts.  I will making some to give as little gifts also, you can never have too many little things to give to friends during the Holidays!

I hope you have a great weekend!  Personally, I'm staying home.  No shopping yet....I can't stand the crowds this weekend.  I have time yet.....right?

Glenda these are so cute. I decorate my tree with just snowmen and these would be so cute to make. I'm not familar with the TH Fragments charms, but I'm sure I can get them from Joan's Gardens. Thanks for sharing your cute ornaments with us.

ahh, very cute! I have been thinking about making some ornaments this year since I am changing my tree from blue to red. I just don't know if I'll have time. But I did get some shopping done! LOL.

Very cute!! I like the idea of using them as tags too (as I seem to skip the tag and just write on the wrapping paper as I'm taking them out to the tree 5 minutes before the UNwrapping!)

These are lovely ornaments, Glenda! Glad you had a nice holiday! Ours lasted until today. My son, dil, and two grandchildren went back to Oklahoma today. I will miss the kids chatter. We had a wonderful time inspite of being tired! No, I do not do Friday or weeekend shopping for anything. I have not been in the car since last Tuesday!!!I hope to get some cards and tags finished today!
