A Party to Get the Week Started

Oh, it's going to be a marvelous Monday because Chris over at Just A Girl is having a "I Can Make That!" party to show Christmas gift projects. I am so excited to get some awesome ideas! My first one is an initial ornament. I painted dots on it and wrote an initial with a Sharpie and tied some ribbon on. I made some last year and never gave them away so I am going to give them this year. Those of you who read my blog have probably seen the second project. It is a plate with a clear quote sticker stuck on. It is not a rub-on, although that works great too. Both projects are cheap and easy peasy!

I love decorating tree ornaments because suddenly - poof - they turn into something special, AND you can customize them to any scheme. You're one smart lady!
