Fabric Heart Ornaments and Link Party


Our final day of 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments is here, which means it's party time! Let's celebrate all our hard work by sharing and visiting each other!  Go ahead and link your projects, I'll wait for you to come back up here to tell you all about this, my final ornament.

When you have to come up with 12 ornaments, you begin to run out of ideas like at number nine.  :/

At least that's what happened to me.

Then, something sparks your imagination and there you go... One more, and one more..  ;)

That's how this ornament was created.

Polymer Clay Snowflake Ornament


Only one more day to go, people! They say time flies when you're having fun and it's true. It looks like it was just yesterday that we began this series and here we are, finishing things up. Well, still one day left.  ;)

It was lots of fun, but you know, it's tiresome! lots of ornaments, pictures taken, edited and written posts. Phfff! By day nine my body was feeling it. That's why an assistant was called.

This, the day 11th Ornament was done by none other than

Chalkboard Christmas Ornament


Thanks so much for following us on our 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event
For this, the 10th day, I went with the chalkboard trend.

Don't worry! There is no painting or cutting involved in the making of this ornaments. 

During the Summer I found these wooden chalkboard labels at Michael's, their price was great, only two dollars for a 6 piece pack.  I grabbed a big bunch, not knowing how I was going to be using them. Well, here they are!

You all know I've been really busy Christmas crafting these days, yep. Preparing little pretty things to decorate my home for the holidays, that's something I really love to do.  It was true when I told you I can keep on doing this forever, but again, there are other things that need to be done.
As a matter of fact, my dining room was not the only place that was a complete mess, the family room, living room and especially the kitchen, where my kids had been preparing their own meals, had a big share of messiness too.

Today is Day 9 of our 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event. Time is flying, there is only three more ornament days! :(
Anyhow, we are still 34 days away from Christmas which means, we can still continue crafting and enjoying this happy time!
Which has been your favorite project, of this series, so far?  I have many favorites, but this, this, and this are some of the ones that come to my mind right now and that I really want to make.

My project today, is hands down, the easiest one I've done so far. You can have it ready in less than five minutes. I found the decorative wire at Michael's, at the end of Spring, I like its texture, some spots are chunky and some others are very tiny.... and that's

Pom Pom Wreath Ornament


Welcome to day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event. By this time into the ornament making, my dining room, aka "Christmas headquarters", is a complete mess!

The table is full of ribbons, papers, bells, ornaments... Any Christmas related craft in our home is right here.

There are also boxes all around the room which makes me walk sideways, each time I try to go to the other side of the table to grab something.

Two days ago, I was trying to put a little bit of order and that's when I found one of these:

Paper Owl Ornaments


Welcome to day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event, where 12 bloggers keep on crafting easy, simple ornaments for 12 consecutive days.

Do you have a theme in mind for your Christmas decor? Rustic, red and white, gold, or perhaps you want to go for a blue Christmas?  Whatever your theme is, I know there is already an ornament or ornaments in this series that fits your style, and there are many more still to come.

This year I'm going for a red and white theme with some gold thrown into the mix, I think today's project is going to be a good addition to it. I used lots of gold and white decorative papers that I had. The owls put on their pretty outfits to celebrate the holidays. ;)
