I know...talking about Christmas already! Believe me, I don't want to think about snow or cold weather anytime soon either, but I have to start thinking around this time of year, what new ornaments that I will be making for family and friends come Christmas.
I wished that I could magically wave my wand and the ideas would just appear, but that is not always the case. Yes, I will say, for the most part, ideas are always swarming my head...lol, I have created handmade ornament for years......, so trying to come up with something new, isn't always easy...:)
Any hoo, last fall...just for the holiday season... I created these 3 ornaments for a class that I taught at Creative Workshops, which is where I hold a few of my on-line classes. I am now offering this class, on a dvd for anyone who would like to learn how to make them. This was such a fun class!
The great thing about these ornaments are, if you change one or two items on them...you could recreate this ornament over and over again and each ornament would be unique in itself.
When I create an ornament, I want it to be able to be used in multiple ways. You could hang this on a doorknob, hook, gift bags. The make wonderful teacher/friend gifts. A lot of times, you need to come up with an office gift under a certain dollar amount. This would make the perfect gift for that.
For years, my family and I have created handmade ornaments for our tree. Now, you can imagine how beautiful our tree looks with all of the handmade ornaments from years past. When our kids have families of their own, we will be giving them an ornament from each year for their tree. What a wonderful tradition for them to start with their families, but also to be able to create memories with your love ones.
I am offering this dvd in my etsy shop.
