Okay, here is the MIA post for Ornament number 11. Turns out all I had to do was shut the computer down and when I turned it on this AM everything was working correctly again. (Wonder if the kitty stepped on it, walked on the keys or something.) I am enjoying reading your blog Candy comments, you still have some time to leave a comment to be registered to win the candy.
12 Ornaments for Christmas Day 11, wooden frame...
I found this great unfinished wooden frame at Hobby lobby in the Christmas craft section of the store. First I took all of the hardware off of the frame and then painted it white with acrylic craft paint and then distressed the edges with ink. I beaded the hanger and then reassembled the ornament. I had gotten these great images in the mail from one of my swappers and decided I wanted to use the Papertrey Santa on this ornament so I colored him in with markers and chalks and placed the heart on with a pop dot and inserted the image in the frame. I love this little ornament...so does the cat and our DD she runs around the house talking to Santa.
We had a great time at my Niece's 5th birthday party on Saturday, she loved the gift I had made for her and is ready to take it to church today. The Purse is made from a plastic box, the box the glass ornaments had come in, it was cut in half so I can make two purses from one box. I broke out the Digi File Eat Cake, from Nichole Heady of Papertrey printed out the paper scored, folded and placed it in one half of the box. This past week I was lucky enough to be blessed with a great friend who sent me a wonderful box full of goodies and in the box was the perfect ribbon to make this set with, just how wonderful is that. (Thank you once again Wanda for all of the goodies.)
For complete directions on how to make this purse box visit "Capture the Moment", the wonderful idea packed blog by Nichole Heady of Papertrey Inc. In my Niece's purse was a lip balm, mini notebook, candy tin, M & M's, and a card with $$$$ in it, she about flipped out. As I stated before she is ready for Church today.
And finally a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful Hubby of thirteen years, the cement mixer driving Hillbilly grocery boy, Happy Birthday!
(Today's B-day is the final family birthday of the year but we can not forget the biggest birthday ever, the birthday of Jesus.)
