Happy 2012!

After I closed up shop, I cranked out some ornaments for gifts. These stars were for Stephen's teachers. I also made 4 in gold - 8 in total. They were all well-received, from what I hear. :-)

I made this little bird for my Aunt, who LOVES birds! She had purchased 3 custom bird ornaments earlier this year, and this one was just a little bit different. I realize the photos are a bit blurry - I was about to package them off for shipping when I remembered that I wanted to take a picture!

This is the other side of the ornament. It's hard to tell, but the color is kind of a light blue-granite color.

I really liked making that bird! I'm planning on writing up a little tutorial for it in the next couple of weeks, and I'll probably make some for sale for next holiday season. I also came up with my idea for new family ornaments for next season too - PENGUINS!

I have a lot of new ideas for this year, but I'll probably take a little longer getting everything created than I'd like. I've undertaken the project of painting the interior of our house, as well as tiling a back splash in our kitchen after we get our new counter tops in a couple of weeks. It should be a busy spring here!
