Handmade Ornaments

Holiday's are my favorite time to think about shopping handmade and making your own gifts as well as decorations,food, and especially Christmas ornaments.I have over 100 ornaments on my tree,many of them handmade by members of my family.A few in particular made by my Aunt Phyllis.She painstakingly pinned tiny sequins on to styrofoam balls in a beautiful pattern.They are some of my favorites.I'm trying to hold on to that tradition by making Lampwork glass ornaments or beads that can be hung on the tree. These Peppermints would make a cute garland. Boy...I better get busy!
