1st Christmas Ornament and giveaway

Hello fellow bloggers and crafters,

I just cant seem to find any time to blog.  I am crafting almost daily, but I just don't get much computer time.  I've been busy making a lot of holiday gifts and such, but most of it has already been given away and some things I forgot to take pictures of...I am sooooo bad.  I also haven't updated my 30 days of me.  Ugh. 

I did want to share this ornament I made for my granddaughter.  This will be her first Christmas as she was born on New Year's Eve last year.  I found these block looking ornaments at a discount store last year.  They came in a set of 6.  There was only 1 package left so I snagged them up.  I haven't seen any of this kind since.  Anyway, I thought they were so darn cute.  I used the glitter effect using the wax and glitter.  I made a bunch of them last year and again this year for my husband's staff, (just the plain round ones).  They all were excited about getting new ones with this year's date on them. 

I will be giving one ornament away to a fellow FOLLOWER.  If you have a new grandchild or know of someone who you would like to give this to, leave me a comment, follow me and tell me about your favorite ornament.  I will pick one winner on Sunday, December 12th.  I have a choice of pink or blue.  I can either put the child's name on it or just "baby's" First Christmas 2010.  That is totally up to you.

As always, have a great day and god bless.

  5. Hello,
    I love your ornament. I have a baby grandaughter, Kaley, she is our first grandaughter after 4 grandsons and we are so excited! I love to decorate the tree every year and pull out those favorite ornaments. I have my grown childrens "first Christmas ornaments" that I put on the tree each year.
