photo ornament...

Hi Blog Friends!!
As you can see...I never made it back to post *sad face* on Friday; it sure has been a crazy weekend (but isn't that how December usually is??). Friday night Mike and I went out for dinner, then picked up Ashley & Nate for some Starbuck's and Christmas light crusin' (I just love how people decorate their cactus' with lights!!). It was a fun night! Saturday my to-do list was a mile long...but I am happy to report that I have only 2 things left to complete, which I hope to cross off tonight...then I can make a new list, argh!!

Last night the kids/teens from my church put on a musical called "Back to the Manger"; it was such a great performance and can you believe I snapped 217 photos??? Crazy, I know! I just loved watching the kids do their "thing" and convey such a powerful message!!

I saw a blog post a while back on making cute photo ornaments; and since I am a "clickin mom" I was all over it!!! I had a few moments last night to whip one up, so I could have something to post today, LOL!! They are super easy (and inexpensive) to make!! I just resized a photo to 1.5 x1.5 inches, cut it out, rolled it gently and put it inside a clear ornament (along with some garland), It did take me a while to get it positioned the way I liked it (I just used a pencil (eraser side), to move the photo around inside the ornament). Then just tie a bow one the top, and that is is ready to hang on the tree.


Have a great day today
