Craft Challenge #1……

Well here is the first ornament of the Christmas Craft Challenge.  Remember this….  So here is my first ornament that the kids helped with. We went leaf picking last Friday and then pressed them in a magazine under my lab top for a day and then Saturday I Mod Podged them and put glitter on both sides. They rested yesterday and then today I sealed them, Justin help me cut ribbon and then put them on our little kid tree on the porch. Here’s what they look like.

Today is Mike’s guitar recital at school. He’s not scared or worried just not happy about it. I’ll take a couple of pictures and share with you tomorrow.

Now it’s onward and upward to laundry and vacuum and then the kids and I are going to go out and look for pine cones, more leaves and feathers. We need some big feathers for our headband we’ll make for Thanksgiving. My daddy has geese, I have guineas , ducks and chickens so I’m sure we’ll have plenty of feather to choose from. I have also got to take a picture of mama chicken, her baby and her “chuck”. She hatched a chicken egg that was hers and a duck egg we snuck under her so that why she has chick and chuck. I’ll try and do that today to share with you tomorrow too.

So have a great day today, take care and enjoy all the wonderful blessings our great Lord has given us. God Bless my friends.

Hi Julie,
Thanks for the link.
I have to agree with everyone else these do look fabulous and I love that they are so simple as well. Just perfect for keeping the little ones quiet for a bit.
I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
