My grand plans for merry making seems to be falling way short of what I had originally dreamed up. I am announcing now, that it really doesn’t matter. I’ve cut my list in half and I’m just gonna wing it. Whatever happens happens. No shop update, no handmade gifts for everyone, no excessive baking. I’m going to chill like a penguin. I’m saying this in hopes that it REALLY will stop bothering me. Like, maybe getting it out there will make it all okay. Really okay. And I’ll stop silently and internally stressing about it. Deep, deep breath…Ahhhhhh
Now on to better things.
These are the ornaments I made for the Holiday Ornament Swap and for Amy’s ornament swap. I know I said I’d only do two swaps, but I thought I’d just make a bunch of ornaments (which I had been planning to do anyway). Plus, I can’t resist a swap hosted by Amy. I always try to do her swaps–they’re the best.
These ornaments are somewhat similar to the ones I made last year. Painted metal, different subject. This large group of little houses are only halfway finished. I had to take a picture before I lost my light. They didn’t take as long to paint as you’d think, maybe because I was enjoying myself and not rushing. And of course they have glitter. Love, love, love sparkles!
AND because I love the birds I made last year so much, I made more. I had originally planned to have these done over a week ago and put them up on etsy. But, I just can’t imagine spending all that time listing them. So, I’m giving a couple away. One house and one bird.
What am I going to do with the rest you ask? Well, if anyone wants one, you can buy one from me through paypal. Six dollars for a house and 8$ for a bird (shipping included for US and Canada orders) add $2 for international. Please send me an email to regina AT creativekismet DOT com and let me know if you would like one. There are 8 birds and 5 houses available. Thanks!!!
Don’t forget to leave a comment to win one of these ornaments. I will pick two names on Thursday night (Dec. 13th) so I can mail them on Friday.
