Well, there may not have been many entries to the last challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies, but the ones we got were gorgeous!
Which brings me to this week's challenge, which is to make a Christmas Ornament. This can be a bauble of some sort, or some other item to hang on the tree or, like I've done, on the wall...
And, we're being sponsored by
Who are offering 7 Digis of winner's choice.
Now, we had a choice of images for this project, and for me there was no doubt... it had to be the "Merry Christmoose" image! And I actually have a reason for this, besides the fact that it's an especially funny image...
You see, I have a daughter. Said daughter is 13 years old, and has the hormones and moodiness to prove it. Now, we used to call her "beautiful", or "angel" or "princess", but as she hit the teen phase, she started getting really stroppy with me whenever I tried to call her "gorgeous". Trying to counteract this stroppiness, I started saying it funny, normally "gorjoose"... This then became "gorjoose moose", because it rhymed, and now... well, now her nick-name is simply "Moose". And she actually likes it! (she even changed her facebook name to include Moose! lol)
So, I have both a Baby Bear and a Moose (and hubby is a wookie... Points to whomever knows to what creature I am reffering here, lol) quite the menagerie! :-)
And without further ado, the hanger I made, which will be hanging on my "Moose's" bedroom door this festive period!
Forgive the fuzziness of the picture! Just pretend that you're looking at it after a couple of margaritas! ;-)
Some close-ups of the panels.
I had a little trouble deciding how to attach the panels to each other, and how to actually hang it, but luckily for me, Dawny P came to the rescue by posting a hanger she made literally while I was in the middle of this! So many thank-yous to Dawny for the inspiration!
And now it's your turn. We want to see your Christmas ornaments. If you'd like some more ideas, my fellow dragonflies have made some gorgeous ornaments for your perusal.
We're looking forward to seeing your creations!
