The ornaments have 2 photographs sandwiched between 2 pieces of glass,
or in some cases 1 photograph with a mirror on the back. They are a lovely
keepsake. Liz the photographer is very talented and is making quite a name
I have a 95 year old Grandmother that up until the last couple of years,
was a crafter that few could keep up with. I taught her how
to make a folded cloth Christmas Ornament. The squares of cloth
are folded and pinned to a Styrofoam ball. Once my Grandmother
started making these she was like a little factory. I would go for a
visit and she would have a box full of them finished. She would
not allow anyone leave without taking some Christmas Balls with them.
I have enough to cover my large Christmas tree and both of my
brothers do as well. I have cousins that have Christmas Ball
covered trees as well. I have made a few and my daughter
has also contributed. My Mother has made a few of these too, but
by far most were made by Gramma.
Cost of Styrofoam balls ----$4.00
Cost of Fabric Squares----$2.00
Cost of Pins----$1.00

I have requested that Santa bring me a special book this year.
Did you know you could have your blog printed out in book form?
I would like everyone
that reads this post to please, leave a comment.
You will then be a part of my book.
If you have never left a comment on a blog,
it is easy. My friend Jillayne has a short
tutorial on her sidebar that will tell
you how. It will only take a minute and once
you know how to do it...you can tell everyone
what you think in a comment.
Love to all,
