When I was younger, my next door neighbor gave me the most wonderful Christmas gift … a beautiful ornament that her daughter had made. She then gifted me an ornament each year until we moved. This is one of them hanging on my tree last year!
This sparked my love of making Christmas ornaments!
For me, this type of craft is very stress relieving. And portable … I can gather my supplies & make a new creation while watching my favorite tv shows.
I also enjoy sharing these ornaments with others… not just as a gift but as a new craft for them to try. So, one fall afternoon in 2008, a group of past co-workers and I got together for a day of talking, feasting & crafting. For my craft, I started this ornament in fall colors.
Everyone finished theirs but due to mine being very time consuming … that is as far as I had gotten that day.
Now, it is finally finished!
I’ve named it Fall Splendor.
