christmas angels and best girlfriends


yesterday i told you about the supplies i unearthed to make my wreath. today i'm going to show you an ornament i made last year right after Christmas. I made about 7 of these I think. They were intended to be little thank you's to my husbands family for helping me with the gift i gave my husband last year. (I gave him a game - Photo Opoly -it's sort of a personalized Monopoly game. My husbands family is all about board games so they were happy to assist - giving me photos that I used to assemble the game). For some reason I never sent them out - i wish i could remember why. I'll probably just give them to them this year at the annual family Christmas gathering. I really liked how they came out - little glass slide ornaments (using foil tape) with some Michaels berry pics to adorn the top.

Today i'm going to lunch with some very old girlfriends. Well -they're not old (cos they're my age and I ain't old!) but our friendship is - I've known one of them over 30 years (one of my college girlfriends) and the other two over 25 years. I'm so looking forward to this lunch - they're very special to me and I'm just so happy we're all able to get together. When we get together - well it's like no time has passed and we just all jump right in like old times. Maybe i'll even get a picture or 2 (you know i will - it's the suzy in me!)

Lovely ornament- they will surely be appreciated. I really like using the memory glass- how did you get the hanger attached?
