The lovely - and extremely multi- talented - Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime is hosting this very festive blog hop. I was so lucky to finally meet Sally at ArtBliss this past September - she is truly a sweet lady and I am convinced that there is not an art medium out there that she CANNOT do---and do well!
Sally has paired the participants with a parnter, and each person creates a handmade ornament, to include an art bead. I was paired with lamp work bead maker Pam Ferrari. I LOVE lampwork beads - LOVE them. (Here is a link to Pam's wonderful Etsy shop!) These are the beauties that Pam sent me.
|Pam not only wrapped her ornaments and sent a card, she gifted me these fantastic lampwork beads!|
|Look at these trio of Christmas beauties! Aren't they fantastic!|
|The cutest little snowman EVER! If you read my previous post, I am obsessed with Snowmen and have quite a few scatter about my house!|
|I love this angel - look at her wings!! And her halo! So sweet!|
|What is Christmas without a tree?? Look at the swirls in the green glass - and the bright ornaments! I love this tree!|
|Here is a picture of the Snowman in situ - I bought the handmade ornament hook from Mallory Hoffman (Rosebud101 on Etsy).|
|This could be my favorite picture - one of my little handmade Snowbabies staring at the tree...|
|Not the best lighting for this picture as it is 5:00 AM on Friday morning as I write this, but I have hung Pam's handmade ornaments on my "special tree" in my hallway. Each ornament is either handmade or given to me through the years.|
Please be sure to visit all of the participants and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
