My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Show and Tell



Here you have it folks!

These are the Christmas tree ornaments that I made for this year. It's the best pic I could get with my crappy camera. I really enjoy making these and they're incredibly easy! This is the 4th year I have made ornaments. Here are the other 3 years' bounty.



The cross was 2004, the candy cane was 2005, the star 2006, the stocking 2007, and NO, I'm not telling what 2008 will look like. :-)

The bonus this year was that I only spent about $10 on tags and stamps. So, that's 36 gifts for <28 cents a piece. I now need to stock up on discount Christmas fabric for next year and will be doing that shortly...


Go on over to Kelli's to see all the other Show and Tells!

Good Morning Mighty Mom,
I love the decorations you made. They are just precious. I know you put alot of time and work into them and you did a great job. "THANK YOU" for sharing your homemade ornaments with us. I need to learn to get crafty. Seems like everyone here in blogland is very crafty except me. LOL. Oh well, take care my friend and have a great Saturday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.
