I had plans with my dear friend, Marcella, to make apple sauce. ..well..? We found the cooler we keep the apples in had gotten too cold and froze the apples.... not good for sauce... this hasn't happened before... So... Marcella worked on some ornaments while I messed around with graphics on the computer. She has been making some ornaments that she found a picture of on Pinterest and they turned out so pretty!
We have such a good time together making things, we laugh and make each other work and share ideas with each other, it is just a great time when we do this. She is my sister from another Mother and I am so grateful for her friendship and love. Marcella helps me keep things in perspective, my perfectionism gets in the way of production and she just loves things as she goes. I hope I get some of that rubbed off onto me! I seem to have more fun helping her than doing my own things. Maybe tomorrow I will do my own things! I do have some pictures of what she inspired me to make last Christmas. I was inspired to use Christmas cookie cutters for my ornaments.
These cookie cutters were some of my favorite when I was little. It is hard to see in this picture that it is a three dimensional picture. There is a layer of just Santa's arm and face on top of the same picture. There is a little glitter here and there to highlight berries.
A Child wishing on a
Christmas Star, or maybe under the mistletoe?
There are extra cutouts of mistletoe leaves and words added to some of them.
This cookie cutter ornament is two sided, but I did not take any pictures of the other side, I don't know why... but I plan to make some more of this type this month for Christmas. I hope to take better pictures. I have a better idea what I am doing. These are the ornaments that did not sell at the bazaar. I hope to remake the ornaments that did sell and I will share them with you! They were so fun to make, and I was happy with how they turned out. I hope to make them better this year!
Christmas is the season that my heart anticipates most of all...I love giving love!
Happy ornament making!
