Christmas Ornaments

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year too!  Mine were blissfully wonderful days spent with my sweet little family.  I didn't extend myself too much this year and I only signed up for 1 MAMA swap (last year I signed up for all of them, something like 6 or 7, crazy me!)  I made these first 3 ornaments to swap with Cari at luckygirlgifts.

I made this snowgirl from white velvet fabric, then added rhinestone buttons, a pink tulle scarf, pearly eyes and mouth, a lace crown and I made her a pink Sculpey carrot nose.

A simple rectangle ornament with a Marie-like lady, French text, vintage tinsel trim Martha Stewart holiday crystal course glitter (my favorite this year, I got 2 more bottles on sale plus 2 of the fine texture also, yay!)

This fabric rose pomander was fun and quite time consuming.  I spent several evenings watching Christmas movies, hand sewing 32 fabric roses.  I glued them all to a paper mache sphere.  I'm so glad it turned out as I had hoped.

And here are the 3 beauties I received from Cari.  I topped my new pink tree with the glittered silhouette girl. Love her!

She sent me such pretty ornaments, so fun!  Thanks again Cari.

The white snowman is my most favorite, but all of these ornaments are so lovely. I would love to have you join one of my swaps this year. Swapping is my favorite, but this holiday season I kept away from them because of the craziness too. I host at least a couple of them each year. Happy New Year to you and your family!
