Wouldnt it be spectactular if we ad a hostess that would host a faancy pin swap??????
We ould makee them from fimo, jewels or shrinkydinks.

cant wait to start
I already know one that I'm making. I'm getting inspiration for the other. And I'll make a bunch, as I always give handmade ornaments out to family and friends. This should be fun!!!! Can't wait to see what everone gets, and what I get!!!!
The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!
Well, our fab. Hostess agreed to post a pic, so there will be one posted soon.
I am pretty sure I PM'd for two.. hope I make the cut or someone I know will be getting mystery gifts. Has anyone here seen or been to Brommers or is it Bronners? a christmas store in the midwest. they are the largest Christmas tree decorating store in the country. they have a catalogue which is cool, online better yet but the best part, drum roll is one can look at an item made from one product and rethink it into fabric or felt fabric and beads and come up with something remarkably cute. Just a thought.. besides fun to window shop there. Drool drool. My solution for fur babies eating my ornaments and tree is to hang a garland. Used to have wainscotting but now I hang it from the beams, between that made a swag garland and simply hung it from the wall/roof line.. swagged down, lights and ornaments and oh well out of your reach kitty dears. I have plastic ornaments for them to steal out of my dish on the table. They are experts at this. Everything else is six feet or higher off the floor and out of harms way. We all are happy.
Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
I keep saying I want to take a weekend trip to Bronner's, but haven't made it yet. I worked for a lady who went there every year and spent a fortune! http://www.bronners.com/
DH anchors our tree to a wall, actually did that the first time when DS was a toddler. No pulling that tree down. Neko (the Cat Who Rules) doesn't usually pay much attention to the tree after the first day or so. We hang the "unimportant" ornaments on the lower half, started that cuz of DS too lol! The cat has managed to destroy every tree skirt though. I gave up and the past couple of years I've just used a plastic tablecloth.

Lauriejo, isn't it ironic that our pets 'train' us to do just what they want? lolo That story is so how I 'fixed' the tree way back when. I have 2 kitties that think the tree skirt is there for them! So for last 15 yrs my tree has a special skirt just for them! Gotta love our pets.
I finished my 2 ornaments. Can't wait to see what others do. My to loves are quilting and beading these are beaded.
Pics please, would love to see what you made. Mine aren't quite done yet, but then I'll post.
