    mdall both your ornaments are wonderful
    Jaba the reindeer is charming and I too would love it.

    Its probably a good thing we don't have to all make one for everyone on this swap. They are all great.

    I think I have decided on which one to make, I have been having ideas dance around in my head and even search for some additional ideas. When I get them made I'll post a picture if I get that new skill to work.

    I THINK THAT REINDEER HAS MY NAME ON IT! It is the cutest thing ever, well ok the others are really cute too. I love your snowmen and the button ornament too. I will post a picture of the one I made, but it still needs that final touch "Candy" gotta fill that puppy to the brim with Candy! Tomorrow I will go shopping and buy some. The can is a tomato Sauce can with holes made by ice pick and a little wire for the handle, a little ribbon painted and decoupaged with christmas fabric. Super easy and super cute when filled with candy!

    Since at this time of year we all look at the polls!! I have decided that I will conduct a poll on the ornaments everyone is creating!!

    Love the nativity set, the snowman is adorable and the reindeer is SO unique!! What everyone needs to do is send me one of each ornament you are making. I will keep track of comments and votes for all that enter my house!! Then I can send everyone the poll results! (sounded good to me LOL)

    And to make sure it's an objective poll, I will run a similar one and therefore there should be 2 sets, with one coming to my house. Different demographics and all.

    Gosh all the ornaments are great! Half the fun of a swap like this is seeing the variety of skills amongst the quilters. Aren't we a talented bunch.

    That is the cutest little soup-candy can I have ever seen MaryT. Wonder if my little great grand daughters would like that, hmm bet so. Hope you don't mind if I steal your idea to make a couple. Not sure about the polls ladies, wouldn't want you to work that hard during the holidays. Takes alot of time you know keeping track and making those counts very accurate. lynnie, my husband use to make these for a craft show when he lived in the Dakota's, still has the pattern so that's where I got it. I'd sure need his help to be able to take orders but I'll ask. Each one is a little different, some are pine, birch, oak, walnut,etc. just whatever wood he has. Sanded, paint on a little facial expression and 2-3 coats of poly. I've had mine for a few years and he's always stands underneath the tree and protects it. Glad everyone seems to like our little Rudolph. Have to get his little bell on today and they'll be ready to mail.

    Well, my ornaments are being delayed again. I went to Walmart yesterday to pick up red and green narrow ribbon. Would you believe those were the only empty ribbbon bins???? Was going to go to Joanns tomorrow, forgetting I have the 2 teen DGKs here for a weekend of helping me out. They need to earn money (want to earn money), and I am the likely candidate for $$$$extraction. So it will have to wait till Monday or Tuesday.

    Everyone stop and listen. No reason to keep fusing and trying to convince Jaba and Marrytoddliz to send that Reigndeer and Can ornament to you. They are all mine and I know this becuase I have a direct line to Santa. I am married to him. LOL

    Love those ornaments ladies.

    rofl, pat that is so funny! OK My mind is warped.


    My husband had the same idea about the cans, he is now in full production mode making halloween treats! He wants to hand them out to all the little trick or treaters that come here!

    Last year we had well over 100, when we ran out of candy he started giving out my collection of happy meal toys. I was cool with it but I know the kids will be back expecting good treats. If he hands out the little cans filled with candy, next year we will have them lined up at the door!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    maryt you better start saving alot of newspaper, wad it up and stuff those cans, then they can see their candy treat on top. What are you doing with all that tomato sauce??? BIG party at your house huh? I can bring the onions from the garden and have lots of burger from a beef. Spagetti sauce in a big pot... Still laughing about the once a year santa!!!!
