Look at my NEWEST & PRETTIEST ornament!!





Lori Di Anni
made this beauty!
Lori and I were partners in an ornament exchange hosted by




Debbie at MarionberryCottage
 I had so much fun making an ornament for Lori. 
(She hasn't received hers yet..snail mail so I am kinda' nervous that she will like it)
I had never connected to her blog before the exchange. 
So I not only got a beautiful ornament but a new blogger buddy!
 This is the very first time I have ever done an exchange and I am so excited to finally see her wonderful work. 
PLUS she has the tutorial on her blog! 
 (I hate to tell you I don't know how to link you directly to that
 particular post....sorry but I am learning, slowly) 
Because she is, so graciously doing a tutorial, I am sending
you the
pictures directly from her tutorial. 
No, I didn't make this one!
Lori gets all the credit. 
Isn't it beautiful?
 It is lovely paper folding (which now I am going to
have to add to my list of things I need/must do.)

You should see my artroom....oh, no, I guess that is not a good idea! 
I can barely find my new extended work space. 
Tomorrow I MUST MUST clean up a little. 
(My reasoning)
But I am using everything that is out sho why take the time to put it away.
It is 3:30 in the morning and I am just now finishing up on the
 beginnings of a bead store front
 that will be a snow scene.  So glitter & stars are EVERYWHERE!


You should have seen the look on my hubbies face
when I said I wanted to get the Christmas decorations out of storage....
NOT a pretty look, for sure!

Please go over to Lori's
to see how she made this one.
Thank you, Debbie for hosting this ornament exchange.
I have loved every single moment.
Thank you, Lori, for my beautiful
Gift Of Love!

Gotta' tare myself away and go to bed before my hubby gets up!
Night everyone,
Sharon

Lori said...

You are so very welcome, Sharon! I loved creating this and to be honest, felt that it wouldn't meet your standards, but I guess I didn't have to worry, did I?! I'm alway.nervous about creating something special for someone and the possibility that they won't like it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart as well for your wonderful compliments on your blog! I'm blushing! I meant to send a card along with it and it was left behind--sorry. But, again,I am so pleased that you are loving the ornament. Can't wait to see what mine looks like!!

"Gotta' tare myself away and go to bed before my hubby gets up!" SO FUNNY! I've been known to think the same thing some evening, er... I mean mornings...

That ornament is gorgeous, there is no other word, just gorgeous. I'm off to check out her tutorial.

Best of luck with the decorating, it's probably best to get a jump on it since Thanksgiving falls so late this year.

What a very beautiful ornament Sharon! Thanks so much for sharing the link! I also love the Christmas scene you created and your beaded poinsettias on the votive holder from your sister, everything is absolutely gorgeous!!

Sharon, what a gorgeous ornament! You are so busy, love your work!
I was hoping to open an Etsy shop or my web store, but I still work full time and I can't seem to figure out how to do it on my Mac.
I am not sure if I can sell off my blog....
I hope I can try one of these ornaments, they look so beautiful...... I'll have to go see her tutorial.
Hugs,
Margaret B

The ornament is so lovely. There is a Trash to Treasures program here that goes into the shelters at the Embassies and teaches the ladies paper folding to make ornaments. I hear they are doing palm trees for Christmas so I want to get an order in for those. I'm thinking I should give it a try too! If I stayed up until 3 something am, I wouldn't be able to function the next day. Hope you got some sleep. Best wishes, :) Tammy

Debra @ Common Ground said...
