Ornamentally Speaking 2008

To be honest, that is a bad play on words but I did four posts last year on making ornaments.  This year, I have the ornaments done.  It only took me three items to get them all set to go in the mail for a swap on The Latest Trends in Mixed Media.

The above ornaments are all made from shrink plastic.  I decided the Madonna and Child was too small.  The tree ornament was a good size.  I really liked the snowflake ornament but it was hard to get it symmetrical and to keep the ends from curling.

This particular ornament is made from corks I have been collecting for years.  The ornament is large but it is my favorite for this year.
