My Holiday Ornament Plans

I was inspired by this post from Adorn magazine’s blog to take stock in the ornaments I have made in the past couple years, and to decide which ones I have time for this year. Of course, I want to make ten of ALL of them. My first and foremost deadline is for the Holiday Ornament Swap 2007, which is due December 15. I haven’t been able to begin many projects until the last class of my semester, which was last Tuesday, Dec. 4 – yippee!

Rustic Felt Ornaments from Rustic Winter by Marilyn Gash and Indygo Junction

Think I’ll enough time to do everything? Probably not, but that’s part of the fun. I hope you are finding ways to be creative during the holiday season!
