Happy holidays

I made these ornaments from German Dresden papers that I layered and placed on spun glass. I added a loop of ribbon (gold on one and velvet on the other) to make them easy to hang. The blue one is on my Mom's tree. We had a wonderful time. I hope you are all having a happy holiday season.

Warm and fuzzy

This was a gift I made for the littlest one on that family trip we had two months ago - remember the tooth fairy pillowcases for the elder children? This is a fleece blanket made of only two parts that folds inside of itself to turn into a compact pillow. It is sort of a puzzle trying to get it back in there, but hey that makes it good for the mind doesn't it, and warm and fuzzy for the rest : )

Sweet sentiments

Isn't this the sweetest little handmade card? It was made for me by my sponsored child who resides in Bangkok, Thailand. He is actually my second sponsored child as I've been doing this for about nine years now.
I really like the dimensions of the card, long and thin, it makes it interesting. It feels like he used pastel chalks for coloring, while the inside is full of Christmas cheer.
You know it's snowing it Seattle right now! "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...." The picture you see is what my backyard looks like right now.

Does anyone have any idea why Blogger isn't loading images in a new window but has a pop up instead?
