Each year I have done an ornament for our grandchildren.
(now numbering 5!!)
Well, I did miss a year....feel bad about that.
I tried to do an ornament that either
represented an interest the kids had,
or something they were doing at the time.
Strawberry shortcake, still a fave....
Little bears...just cause I liked little bears...=)
You may be noticing that most of them are painted.
I painted, and taught tole painting, for 25 years.
So each year I would cut the wood,
or some times my sweet fella would cut it out,
and I would paint it.
Theses are pics of just a few.
ducks...( this is a University of Oregon Duck.
My daughter and son-in-law both graduated from there)
and the kids are big Duck fans.
trucks for the little guy.....U of O...again. =)
I did a United Parcel Service truck, (not seen)
cause that is where their Daddy works.
a non-painted little nest in a cone....
just for a change from painting.
and ballerinas....which 2 of the girls still love!
So, I missed a year, or maybe even two...
and now I'd better get going on more ornaments.
Another painted one, even though I do not paint any more...
they pack up nice....for storing.
Or, maybe I will find some other art form,
equally storable, but fun and new. =)
Any fun ideas???
4 girls, 1 boy.
Christmas Blessings everyone.
