Is It Too Early For An Ornament?


I've made 5 ornaments since Christmas, this is the only one I can post right now due to my 'don't show gifts before you give them' strategy for 2010. My tragic story is I did not have time to shop when I was in Germany this summer. (Where are those violins when I pull out these stories?). This means I didn't get my required ornament, what? Fortunately, I DID get some pictures. I saw different versions of this type of ornament this last season, and decided I needed to make one. I have some 'old' printer friendly overheads from the days when teachers used overheads, and I was one of them. I printed off this picture in color, cut out the shape of the 'inner ornament' then slipped it inside. In this case, I added some little roses I found at the craft store (because they were all over Germany) there are more than four, but that's all that showed in the photo, and I could NOT get the glare off the photo to show what the photo really looks like, but you get the point. Anyway, here is my Germany ornament....it'll have to do until I get back to Germany and can get some shopping done the right way!
