It's All About the Ornaments

Oh, for the good old days when people would stop Christmas shopping when they ran out of money. –Unknown

Our personalized 2010 ornaments finally arrived. I think I'm going to register a complaint for the huge delay.

Funnily enough, our 2011 ornaments were in with the 2010 ornaments. Imagine that.

Our 2012 and 2013 ornaments are scheduled to arrive on Saturday. And when I pulled out my Christmas things, I found some really cool glass ornaments I'd started to embellish, but never finished. I'd completely forgotten about them and did a face-palm because these could have been for 2010. I finished getting them together, and now I have ornaments for 2014.

And 2015. {Personalizations to be added later.}

I had left-over beads, so I thought it might be fun to put together an assortment of snowmen and Santa Claus ornaments to give to a few special friends and neighbors. I bought these particular glass ornaments a few years ago and knew that I'd never find more. I was hoping to find some clear glass balls to use instead. I went to eight stores today. No one has clear glass ornaments. Silly stores. Don't they know that some people have crazy last-minute ideas? I did find some really nice red and silver ones that I'd resigned myself to using, even though they wouldn't be as cool as clear ones with colored beads inside, but when I went back to get them the store was closed. At 8:30 pm. Silly store. Don't they know that Christmas is in four days and everybody wants to shop round the clock?

CUTE handmade glass ornaments! Your talents extend beyond fiber crafts. Btw, Carol of the Bells is my favorite Christmas song. I have it in half dozen renditions. And this one is my favorite version! So cool. :)

I looked on amazon and the good thing is they are available all year. Perfect for craters that love to do Christmas all year
