Sharing a few of my Christmas handmade ornaments. So fun to do!
Little air dry clay ornament in the style of Michelle Allen. I made it to go with Children's book I have been finishing. Nikki Nissa and the Christmas Star. I have a page from the book below. I am on my iPad and I don't know how to move the photo without key short cuts
I used green bottle brush trees I bleached out. Then I made gessoed cotton cloth that I then stamped with snowflake. I also added a netting to the wings. I printed out faces from a photo copied and photoshop page I made from scanned images of my faces. I cut them out and glued them to the foam silver beads from a Christmas swag. I made cloth tea dye and gathered neck collar
I glued the heads and trees together painted the bases and glittered the trees by painting them white and glittered them while still wet.
I have a few for sale if your interested I can get one to you. I can repost on etsy.
This is a page from my book I am still working....it has been a large project as it s my first.
I made this post to join this fun Christmas Christmas Ornament Blog Party!

I was inspired to post my Christmas decor because of the "Common Grounds" blog link party. Christmas now and past links.
Just a touch of Christmas in my new bedroom decor.

I have been missing my childhood Christmas.
So I made it it at my house.
Santa came right at 7 pm Christmas Eve! Last year we found this life size German Santa. My husband got it for me at a antique mall in Seattle WA
My first couple Christmas...we're at a cabin in Big Bear CA
Grandpa built it. He loved to make wonderful special places...fantasy worlds
This year I wanted to go small and sorta real.
But putting up on a table and in two urns makes it look like a 7 foot tree without all the work..smile!
Past little Christmas song my husband helped me finish I started while getting ready for Christmas.
