As promised in my previous post here is a picture of the ornament I made for Amanda's challenge. I got the idea of putting ribbon or wire in glass balls from an old "Sunset" magazine. I went looking for the clear glass ball ornaments but they are a bit difficult to find at this time of the year. The lady at Creative Craft and Frame in Corvallis went into the store room and found a box of the flat. rather disc shaped ornaments which I liked even better than the balls. I happened to have the gold wire with stars and the gold and white ribbon in my scrapping supplies drawer. The pink jewels and tiny pink/gold stickers came from there as well. I probably should explain that my Christmas tree is decorated in pink, gold and white every other year. In the alternating years I use red, gold and white. However, since we got rid of our large, pre-lit tree after Christmas last year I don't know if I will be doing a tree this year or not. The question will remain until we decide where we are going to be for Christmas.
