    Gran of 6 we are making ornaments for a 5' tree. maybe 6 feet my sis is getting an artificial one so I am unsure. She is the total bargain hunter and now is the time to find one on Craigslist reasonable. We are going with white gold (yellow is fine) or red so please if you would like to contribute that would be amazing and gracious of you. I will be posting when the tree is set up for all of you to see what we put together. I am in need of only 125 more or so if anyone wants to toss one or ten my way ok it was a good sounding idea ..

    I wish prayers too all the members here going through a tough time. We are a good group and its hard when one of us is hurting. I will PM for the address to send a card. Thanks for mentioning it Krystyna.

    Sending thoughts to all those suffering. I'm not much for prayer; have been let down too many times.

    Okay, I will work on some snowflakes this weekend and see home many I can get made. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

    My Prayers to Brenda and her family!
    Ornament swappers you should have your ornaments on Monday! We are going out of town for almost 3 weeks (new GSon in Ohio and Smokey Mountains on the way) so if the ornaments arrive and you don't get a thank you from me that's why, but I will say "Thank you" now and I will pm when I get home!

    thanks Krystyna for letting us know about Brenda. I'll pm you. Prayers for her and her father and her family.
    All the ornaments are looking wonderful. I too am feeling a bit intimidated, I had one idea but the proto type wasn't looking to well so I thought I go another direction, then yesterday I saw something that gave me an idea for one of my peeps-it would be something I would have to create from scratch, double serving of intimidation, maybe, we'll see. I may end up making 5 before I get to something that works. Maybe I can get them done this weekend.
    I like all the ornaments that have been posted so if any of you have me send it I will love it.

    Ornaments

    These are going out to their new homes today. The original pattern is by Carried Away Designs (carriedawaydesigns.net). I took the liberty of using the base pattern, and turned the bird into a snowman for the second ornament.

    Jaba! There seems to be a reindeer missing from the North Pole! He arrived at my house today! He's going out to my studio to keep guard over my small Christmas tree that I've put up out there. He's just too cute!

    What super cute ornaments! and intimidated ? I think your ornaments will be just fine. Simple ones are just as pretty as the more ornate ones. They all look great when hanging from a tree with lights on it. I just love sitting in a room, big lights off and looking at a pretty tree. Hot tea in my hand.. yup that is Christmas to me. Not the presents. It is all about the decorations lol. (that is a truth by the way I could care less about presents but I sure love decor).

    This is so fun watching what everyone is making.
    Kyrstyna, I am wishing you help with this visit. I hope the rest of the family is coming along to support each other. I know this is a tough one for you.

    Am I the only one who has played a Christmas CD yet? (slinking down under the counter if I am).. ready it gets worse.. it was Kenny Rogers Christmas.. lol I had to I couldnt help it. ornament making.. means silly Christmas music. The nutcracker is on the menu for today think the neighbors can handle that more (I like it louder) and well if your not into that stuff you would never know its Christmas right? lol like I care if anyone thinks I am a nutbar. I already knew that.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ANASTASIA HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.. HAPPY YOUR SO RELAXED AFTER SPA DAY, I AM NOT ENVIOUS OF YOU (boy what a liar I am). HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOOOOOO YOUUU and many more!

    Elisabrat, I haven't listened to any Christmas music yet, but my favorite is The Oak Ridge Boys Christmas. I will have to get the Kenny Rogers one. And we can't forget Cyndi Lauper, she has a great Christmas album.

    Elisabrat, dont feel bad about the Kenny Rogers music. I am sorta a flake when it comes to Christmas music also. I can remember my dad playing Elvis at xmas and to this day I would love to have his xmas albums to listen to. They bring back such good memories. So enjoy your music, decor, and memories for that is what its all about.

    I have a silly question: do our partners know they are our partners? Or is it secret?

    Hey Krystyna.......I was wondering the same thing. Last year we received ornaments from the people we sent to - don't know if it is the same this year.

    And, no, my ornaments aren't needle felted. They are wool, though. Funny thing, I was just talking to a shop owner about wool felting today at a quilt show. That's one thing I haven't tried yet. Maybe some day.

    BTW, my ornaments won't go out till Monday. I forgot that it's Saturday, so the PO closes early.

    Krystyna, you don't know who your partner is until you receive your ornament in the mail from them. Just like the SP packages.
