wish list ornament

One set of ornaments done, lots more to go.

Here is how my nephews ornaments turned out.  I think they are adorable and I'm fairly sure they are going to just love them.  I just used some empty black spools that I had in my sewing area and some ribbon from my box so they were basically a free way to say 'I love you' and 'Merry Christmas' all rolled into one.

Here is the link to the original tutorial where I found the idea.

Christmas ornaments

This year I'm doing something a little different for my extended family Christmas party.  I haven't been abel to attend for a few years now and it just seems a little silly for me to be a part of a christmas exchange for a party I don't even go to.  I've been trying to come up with an idea of how to still show my love to them, and I think I've found it.  I'm going to make them Christmas ornaments.

Here are some of the ideas I found today that I'd like to try out.
