TGIF!!! And on every Friday, Lillian and I will bring you our favourites of the week, which can include things we have made or things we would like to make.
I love this little vintage inspired bauble; it reminds me of all my grandmother’s old ornaments, most of which we are lucky enough to have still (in original packaging!). Though I love the charm and colour that the old ornaments bring to our Christmas tree, I am also a fan of colour coordinated tress and abstract/minimalistic designs. I think this ornament fits a little bit into each of these categories- so next Christmas, I’ll definitely be painting one for my own home.
I love Thank You cards. They make you feel good to send, and they make you feel great to receive–anyone who’s ever volunteered knows how much of a boost even one ‘Thanks’ can give you. (And also, this way I can cheat and put two things up as my Friday Favourite :P) Pretty much the ultimate ‘warm fuzzy’ ! Plus they are super fun to make since the possibilities for colours, designs, and embellishments are endless. Andrea went with a beautiful fabric flower and bright colours for her version; for mine, I went with an echo of a simple paper-wrapped package, with some cheerful ribbon.
