December 9th-Christmas Blog Hop

Well I hope everyone is getting in the Christmas spirit.  Welcome to the December 9th-Christmas Blog Hop.  If you got here from Jearise - then you are on the right track!!  If for some reason you didn't, please start at the beginning with Ashley - . 

We were encouraged in this hop to show our creativeness.  There was not a specific theme other than Christmas.  I made two ornaments that I hope get you in the Christmas spirit.  My aunt recently gave me a lot of her vintage beads, buttons, and ribbons.  I used these vintage pieces to create these two ornaments.


I have included the entire lineup so you won't miss a thing.

I am the last stop on your travels for today.  I hope you have enjoyed all that our crafty ladies have prepared for you.
