Ornament Tutorial & Exchange

Sunday, November 8, 2015

 I am participating in the holiday spirit thanks to Erlene author of My Pinterestventures is Hosting the 2015 Ornament Exchange.  Do you know Erlene? Make sure you visit the link above to meet the magical Elf. She somehow managed to wrangle a large group of blogger to create tutorials for you,  then send off ornaments to a new friend. She has created a job that is similar to Santa delivering all the Christmas joy overnight. Only she has subjected herself to this for several days. I hope you enjoy the good cheer, creative ideas and meeting new bloggers in the process.

My new friend is Stephanie. She is a Mom, Nurse, Adjunct Professor teaching college students and the author Casa Watkins. She has chosen the colors of Gold and Green to decorate her Christmas Tree this year. I hope this ornament will remind her of the heart of gold she has during the Christmas season.
