So my search for ornaments in my last post was really for the Ornament Exchange Party that I was lucky enough to be invited to. 12 ladies were to each make 12 ornaments and then we trade them. We all go home with 12 different, handmade, absolutely beautiful Christmas ornaments.
I chose to make the quilled snowflakes. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of them all but they were so beautiful. Elegant and lacy.
What Fun! I was so excited!
So, here are the treasures I came home with....
A penguin made of a flattened glass ball.
The popcorn ball.
I can't figure out how she got the popcorn inside that glass ball
but it's awesome and smells delicious.
Two different santa bellies from two different ladies.
Very cute, huh.
Yo-Yo Christmas tree.
Love this one!
A very delicate glitter ball with a snowflake on it.
The Nativity made with polymer clay.
A hand stitched Nativity.
A stitched star.
My own quilled paper snowflake.
(I really am in love with it.)
A rustic bell.
A very cute Santa with a floppy hat.
Aren't they all just delightful!
I can't wait to put them all on my tree.
I had such a fun time with this - the making and the trading - I think I my just have to do my own party next year.
