Last year in a moment of panic when I realized I'd signed up for the ornament blog hop and had nothing made I gathered up bits and pieces that I no longer loved or didn't want to use... This year I remembered my intention to particpate with 10 days to make my ornament (am I actually getting more organized?)
Even with 10 days I decided to use a similar method of assembling components... I started with the art bead.... then came the little glass beads to compliment it.... Well the long and short of it ... the final ornament doesn't have a single component that was in the original pile...
My beaded bead was replaced with a slightly burnt enameled bead... My raindrop was remade in a colour that matched my beaded bead which I didn't use... and instead of using little flameworked beads I used small commercial triangular beads.... The original raindrops were made as a fund raiser for a local day care... 'raindrops of hope' so I thought using one in this years ornament was appropriate!
Then I hung it on the tree next to last years ornament and decided that they were much to similar...
Link to last years ornament!
So this year Charlie's tree gets two NEW ornaments! What a lucky tree!
Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season... and have a I started to declutter NO!
