Yellow Glass Ornament

December 13, 2007 Sarah Coggins

Angela Daniels posted a photo of her ornaments last week on her blog. It got me thinking about how I should start photographing and recording why certain ornaments have special meaning to me. Our tree has some typical shiny “filler” balls that are just ornaments. But it also is full of ornaments that tell a story. With that idea in mind and the prompt from Dec 6 of dw2007 (“create a unique border…”), I created tonight’s card:
Supplies: “Black Frame” (I changed it to white) from the Color My World kit by Rhonna Farrer (Two Peas in a Bucket); Bazzill cardstock; Uniball Signo white pen; Making Memories epoxy sticker.

10 of your greatest joys…

  1. my marriage 🙂
  2. my family
  3. my faith
  4. my scrapbooking
  5. my furbabies
  6. helping others
  7. teaching the preschool Sunday School class

Surely there’s more! I’m drawing a blank at the moment. Probably because I’m up past my bedtime. 😉

    Love the idea of scrapbooking your ornaments, Sarah. I have so many with stories, and I've never taken the time to write them down. No one but me would even know them! It's a great idea! :-) TFS! Janet

    This is great! I'm still at the giant photo of ALL the ornaments but I'm glad it inspired you to tackle them one-on-one. That is my goal this Christmas as I pack each one up. Thanks for letting me know my random thoughts are sometimes useful =)

    I love the idea of scrapbooking your ornaments. My mil gave us all her ornaments that her other children didn't want plus ones I got from my parents. Lots of great stories on the tree.
