My sister-in-law, Melissa, has two kids. And for Christmas we get an ornament made by each child. It is really fun to dress the tree in these colorful ornaments. And I can imagine the fun and memories will continue to grow as Ruby recognizes her cousins (whom she just loves) made these ornaments. And of course when they are snotty teenagers, looking back on the cute ornaments will be even more rewarding. ANYWAY, I have to make a Ruby ornament to hand out as well, right? Right. And clearly, Ruby isn't making it, painting it or choosing it. So I get to design it all by myself. And make it all myself. Oh, and then clean up my mess...
The tools needed for this craft.
Who am I kidding, this is what my dining room table looks like currently:
ACK! Oh, well. Do you see what is in the middle of that mess? Completed ornaments!
Ruby's wonderful Santa's Helper picture is in the front. (Printed at home onto glossy picture paper and then cut out with a large circle punch)
And then from the other side is a strip of red paper that I printed "Ruby's First Chirstmas", a strip of pearl paper that has 2011 typed out repeatedly, pearly white ribbon, and red, green and white confetti. Woohoo!
My list is almost complete!
