Christmas 2012 has come and gone!

WELCOME TO 2013!

It has been so long since I have blogged that WordPress has made some exciting changes to its text program! I can write in bold and cross out things! 🙂 This is cool!

Well, to start off, I am going to post pictures of the handmade ornaments I put on my tree each year, as well as a few special ones.  My friend Jen wanted to see them, so while putting away Christmas today, I took the time to photograph them.

These are quite old, from 1995…my sister made them and they came on Christmas presents.  It is something that she does every year, adorn our gifts with ornaments and I have always put them on our tree, so my tree is made of a lot of my sister! By the way, these ornaments can be filled with small treats.  I really would like to make more of these cuties.

More cross stitch ornaments! All from my sister, well, except for the little triangle on to the top right, from an exchange. The boys pictures are on them too.  I love them all and cherish them.

Not all from mysister this time, the green one are hers, but the small santa and the little dog are ones my son JL made when he was young.   A paper ornament with bead from an exchange and the two mittens are made of felt with ta hairclip inside and they clip onto the branches.

Two angels picked up from a craft fair long ago….a little worse for wear, but make me smile!

Not necessarily homemade but personalized….top four snowmen from my sister and the the little ones on the right with our names adorned.  The two with the pictures have been on the tree for over 20 years…always vying for the highest branch!

Knitted and crocheted…two on left from y sister and the ones on the right from Norway (Marit) and she alsow made me the blue hearts, crazy quilted and teh small paper red heart.  I have more knitted bells and such but did’t find them for the tree this year….
