Ornament Swap!

Some ornaments I made for a swap sponsored by Red Velvet Art. The mission was to create (at least 50%) handmade ornaments to send to 3 other participants we were matched with. I think their Flickr account is also Red Velvet Art if you'd like to see some of the other ornaments. They're due to be shipped by December 1, so I'm sure more will be posted.

Oh, I should show you these too. Since Starbucks is switching to the printed packaging for their coffee, they've been using the old coffee labels to cover the holes in the cup lids so you don't spill on yourself transporting your beverage. I've been hording 3 each time they put a new roll on the bar where they serve the drinks. I got this brainstorm to make ornaments out of some of 'em, adding tassels and beads. Kinda goofy, but kinda cool too, hee!!! : .)

I posted a couple of cards on my mini art card blog a skosh more and a few scrapbook layouts on my main blog.

I hope Y'all had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

it's funny but I think your starbucks ornaments are my favorites of the bunch. Very neat. I also really like the birds.

Zann always says what I was going to say if I don't get there first!

I definitely am a fan of the Starbucks ornaments!

Love 'em. I'm partial to the birds and the snowflake.

So resourceful! And of course the Starbucks ones are near and dear to my heart. I can imagine the snowflake and heart will sparkle so beuatifuly on a tree!
