A Few Really Good Ornaments

My sis-in-law is the most creative gal ever!  She loves to do crafts and beautify her home with them!  

 For a few years now, she has hosted an ornament party at her home.  It is always the same group because the object is to make an ornament for each individual at the party.  Everyone goes home with about 12 or 13  ornaments to put on their tree. It is quite a chore to make 13 ornaments for each person.  But the pay-off is great!  Last year she and I made ornaments together.  Mine went to a gift exchange that I did with my singing group!  They were a big hit! Here are some pictures of her last ornament exchange party and some of the cute ornaments that were made.Very creative, ladies!

Handmade ornaments are so great. Wish I were the crafting type. I buy crafting stuff but never seem to get very good results.

Wow, they are so cute! Wish I was that crafty....unfortunately, my Mom's crafting talent wasn't passed down to me!

Love these...especially the ones that can't break since I have a 3 year old and 8 month old. :)

You can never have too many ornaments on your tree is my motto.

I am also keeping the Christmas tree up 'til March so maybe I am a little crazy!

What a great idea! I've never heard of an ornament exchange party. A nice way to get some new ornaments for your tree and make some new memories along the way!
