Some photos for your viewing pleasure.  I will try to give links where possible:

I get all choked up when I see these ornaments. I made them long, long ago. I would love to make a hundred more, but sadly, I cannot get my hands on any more of these satin covered balls.


New wreath for the tree! It had a bare spot. 😀 You can find a link to the pattern in this, my blog post:

Another ‘antique’ I made when my oldest was a baby. (She just turned 41!!!)

Wishing you and yours a blessed Holiday Season.  I hope to be back soon!  I was just an impulse today.  Haha…I need more ‘moments’.  Truth be told, I had an old fuddy duddy computer, and finally had enough. I replaced it, finally!  I have been so busy!     Yours truly  ~Gma Ellen
