Ornament Blog Hop

I had the wonderful chance to participate in an ornament swap created by Sally Russick.  Not only was I so fortunate to be able to participate Sally was my partner!!  I have been on a peyote stitch marathon so of course I had to create something with the flying missiles!  I went to a wonderful beader Therese for help.  She found me the spinning bead pattern.  I had fun making the spinning beads but wanted something a little larger(now I have those beads to find a project for).   I kept at it and finally found  The Crimson Moon on Etsy.  Liz does an excellent job of keeping you on track to make these a fun project.   Back to Etsy for some snowflake shopping at BohemianFindings.  I found all kinds of fun Christmas charms.......if only there were more hours in a day I would have a tree full!  I guess I have all winter to do more for next year.....

Sally made me the most beautiful ornament  full of so many special little touches.


It's just perfect!  Thank you so much Ms. Sally I will cherish it forever!

I can't wait to see what everyone has been creating!!
Take a little time and do some blog hopping...there are so many talented folks
