Christmas Ornaments

When my Husband and I had our first Christmas together we bought a cute little tree. I like our tree but I noticed that it was no different then any one Else's. Everything on the tree was bought at the store and the tree seemed to be missing something. Love, our tree was missing love. The tree did not seem special. I decides to start making my own ornaments for the tree. My mother bought me some little $.99 tree ornaments kits one year. I now find different patterns in books to do on my own. I have been making them ever since. I have made a total of 30 ornaments over the years. This year I made 8. I have gotten fast at making them each year. I decided to add beads to them also and I think they turned out very nice. I hope you all enjoy seeing them. The last one pictured is one that I messed up on. Even though I botched up on it, it still looks nice. My tree looks special now even if it is only special to me.

They look wonderful on your tree. I know how much time was put into them and you did a wonderful job.

Merry Christmas Sindi! I think homemade ornaments make a tree so very special. About three fourths of our ornaments were hand made by my husband's grandmother who has been gone since 1997. It is very special to have these reminders of her ever Christmas. And our tree always looks beautiful to me. Did you do all the cross-stitching on your ornaments?

Hi Sindi,
I think your handmade ornaments are beautiful. I am a folk artist, and I also do counted cross stitch. I love how relaxing it is to sit with a needle and thread and create something beautiful with my own hands.

You have made your Christmas tree very special indeed. May God's blessings be with you through the New Year.

Your blog is very lovely and inspiring. :-) Roger from Idaho Photo sent me over and I am so happy that he did.

Hugs,
Kimmie
