anINTERNATIONALgift


We just received a package from our lovely friends in Germany! And it of course got my creative juices flowing...I wanted to send something personal along with the candy and other things I have been setting aside. So, on a whim I came up with a cute and inexpensive ornament made up of bottle caps - glued together with hot glue - cut up my Christmas Card of us, inserted the pics in the caps and covered over them with a clear resin product I found at the craft store...and now its my new favorite thing! I made a few magnets for the fridge and have lots of plans for the rest of the bottle...I have a feeling I am going to be using much more of it in 2011!

I have to admit this Christmas wasn't as crafty and creative as I have been in the past...most of my gifts were store bought and I just found I didn't have the time, energy or money to pursue all the other things I wanted to when it came down to it. But as always, here is to next year...I'm trying to be true to my list this year and find time to make my gifts throughout the year instead of waiting until the end...check back in 2011 to see what I come up with!
