Thankful for You

I am so thankful for all of the sweet people that are in my life. I am so blessed with an amazing family and wonderful friends (those of you who I know in real life and those of you that I have yet to meet in person). I am free to worship my God without any fear of harm. I have food on the table and clothes to wear. I am thankful to do what I love and still have time to have lunch with my kids. Life is good!

I wanted to share another Magistical Memories project I made. They have the most amazing selection of chipboard and I have been fortunate enough to be able to play with some of it the last week or so. I created this little ornament using their Shining So Brightly Star. I wish the picture did it justice.

The front of the star is painted white and then covered with glitter. Then I decided that I couldn't just leave the back bare and that is when I got carried away! LOL I dry brushed the edges white and then added this awesome little frame by Melissa Frances. The little angel inside and the Count your blessings tag are also from Melissa France from the thankful kit. I added a bit of red velvet trim, some buttons, a glitter flower and a pearl bead. I am thinking this ornament will look fabulous on someone's Christmas gift this year.

Thank you for stopping by. I truly do love that you took the time to check out my blog!

That's adorable!!!

Every year I want to make decorations for the tree, but every year, I run out of time or think of it too late!

Adorable, Lisa! I love handmade ornaments. Every year I try to make one for each of my kiddos. That way when they move away, they will already have a set of ornaments to get them started and some that remind them of home. You are giving me some great inspiration for this year's, as I haven't figured out yet what I'm going to do. Love that you decorated both sides! Love the MF frame!
