Handmade Ornaments

This holiday season I took part in Cassandra of An Artful Adventure Handmade Ornament Swap.  I had a great time creating my pieces and just wait until you see what I got.  But today I want to share what I created.

We exchanged with 3 partners 3 different ornaments.  I tried to personalize the ornaments I made.  Miss Lynn's liked Pink and Blue, Whites and Creams, Winter Blues and she was interested in Anything as long as roses are involved.  Mary likes Whites and Creams, Pink and Blues and is interested in Anything, but French and Elegant is her favorite. My final partner Trisha was an anything goes girl. 

I was really a silly blogger when I took the photographs and don't have images of all the individual pieces I did.  But below is the front and back of the Bottle Cap Ornament that I made for Mary, I thought the images were Frenchish...

Miss Lynn posted a lovely picture of the Rose version of this ornaments on her blog create...breathe
and you can see the ornaments she made for me HERE

This is my favorite of the 3 ornaments I made, polymer clay glittered birds.  And I painted them all different colors based on my partners preferences. 

Behind the blue bird above you can see the 3rd ornament I made, a painted wooden shaped thing.  Alas I really didn't like the way it turned out, to the extent that I don't even have a picture. 

I had a great time creating, and learning about my partners for this swap.  I secretly hope that this becomes a yearly swap that Cassandra hosts. 

Come back tomorrow and I'll be featuring my fabulous partners pieces.
