Not because it's not my favorite holiday, it is, but it's just coming WAY too fast.
The snow we got last night (a mi-nute amount) that actually stuck to the ground was a rude awakening. The kids, however, were THRILLED!
Tomorrow is our church's Christmas Bazaar. It happens every year (I think we're going on 12 now) and this year I'm once again co-chair, which means next year I'll be the top banana. Or maybe it's monkey!
A couple weeks ago, I showed you one set of ornaments that I made for the donated table. (Crafts that are made by church members and DONATED, which means, the church gets the money once they are sold...unlike the other vendors who buy spaces and then get their own profits.)
It was just glass ball ornaments I purchased at Wal-Mart, glittered the top of, and stuffed with cut pages from a book I keep exclusively for art projects/crafts.
Last night I got to work, but I wanted to do something I thought would be less time consuming than watching the glitter dry...I don't know if I succeeded or not.
My inspiration was an ornament I had posted about on Wed. that I found on Pinterest.com with no source.
I just added my own spin on it.
First, I cut my pages out of an old book, and got some twine, (sorry the pictures are all dark...I had low lighting in the craft area last night)
So, first you take your strips of pages (length is up to you, based on how BIG you want your ornament to be. Mine were about 12" long) and fold them in half and staple at the bottom.
Maybe we should start a series...50 things to do with book pages! (not a bad idea...)
Anyway, hope the snow stays away a little longer. Happy weekend everyone!
