Glittering Bailey

I've had quite the glitter production going on on my dining room table lately. Good thing we don't usually eat on it! I've been creating all kinds of sparkly creations to hang on our Christmas tree, but I swear, it's like I'm not working hard enough or something. I feel like I've been crafting ornaments for hours and hours and I only have a few creations to show for it. Oh well, at least I've been having fun and I'll have custom-made ornaments when I'm done! Yay! But, seriously, I think Christmas just snuck up on me this year. It was like, one minute, it's spring and the next's Christmas! What the hay!? Anywhosier, here's my next batch of ready-to-hang ornaments, straight from the craft room dining room table:

I paired Martha Stewart glitter with red ribbon and added a little metal hoop on top

As you can imagine, with this much glittering going on, I've basically got glitter everywhere! Even on Bailey! Poor little guy. I accidentally sprinkled some on him when I was walking past him with some ornaments. Oopsie! Mommy will try to be more careful!

Those are gorgeous and I can really appreciate them because when my mom was first married to my dad she made her own homemade ornaments too. This was before I was even born - I'm talking like, back in the early 1950's! I still have some of them and every year I use them in her memory. If I was you I would keep them and pass them down to your future children!

Aww...what a sweet comment! that's lovely of you to still use her ornaments...i would be honored if my family did that!

I will definitely give them to my children...if they want them, of course. :)

Thanks for stopping by

those are just so festive. I adore red and blue together for Christmas colors.

And I just wanted to thank you for the package. It totally made my day to open it up and have all those lovelies spill out. But I have to say, the earrings were my favorite. They are just exquiste. Thank you, it was so very kind of you to put it together for me.

Hey Chelle!

Glad you liked it! Sorry it took so long to get to you...those little tags take so much longer than you'd think! Not that that delayed me...just the time of year, ya know!? Phew...I enjoy Christmas, but kinda can't wait till it's over and everyone's schedules slow down!

Happy Holidays!
