JOY Ornament

This has seriously been the most relaxed, stress-free Christmas season that I can remember.  In fact, Saturday I was able to enjoy the day with friends, even though Christmas is only two weeks away!

We had lunch at a place that reminded me of a tea room, though it really isn’t.  We had paninis, chicken salad sandwiches and I had a sweet potato cupcake for dessert.  Good food and good friends!

The front part of the place is a gift shop, so naturally there was some shopping afterwards.  I needed to find an ornament to give to a friend at Sunday School the next day and was delighted to find one I thought she would like.



Now one of the reasons I wanted to share this isn’t so much for the story of my fabulous Saturday, but to point out how easy it would be to make this ornament since we are all about the crafting.  The red ribbon was velvet, little rhinestones all around and I’ve seen the blingy letters at the craft stores.

So cute…. and she LOVED it!

That's darling, and I agree, it looks simple to make. I pinned it, so I'd be sure and remember where I saw it! :-)
