Christmas Ornaments & M&Ms!

Don’t adjust your focus; it’s my photo.  It’s really, really difficult for an amateur photographer to take a picture of a clear, glass ornament!  I’ll blame the kids; I hinted that it would be nice if they’d put the tree up while Mike & I were gone, but they didn’t take the bait.  Maybe I should have been a little more emphatic instead of hinting.  Anyway – if I could have hung this on the tree, it would have looked really cute!

The rest of the week will be “quickie posts.”  (Aren’t you glad?  No time for blabbering!)  I have rehearsals, make-up lessons and performances from now through Sunday, plus a workshop, so I’ll be flying low!  I wanted to show you a few things for December’s workshops, though.

We’ll be making two ornaments and a card that uses a technique we’ll learn.  It’s an “end of the year/Christmas party,” but I thought it was a little late for Christmas/holiday cards.  So we’ll do a Valentine and some ornaments.
