I had a moment of weakness...it sounded like fun...make ten ornaments and send them off to ten strangers and then I'd receive ten handmade ornaments from ten strangers in return...WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?
It's already December 6th and I have NOTHING purchased, let alone wrapped, for Christmas - not even for family and friends who live out of state!! Craziness, that's what it is...early onset dementia...mad cow...and given that, this is what I came up with...
A "ribbon-candy" ornament with beads on the end...and just to make sure they knew what it was supposed to be I included a little bag filled with REAL ribbon candy...I also included a little cinnamon-scented candle which sits in a "wreath" of pearly beads...as a peace offering for making such a lame ornament!
I don't know why I care what ten strangers think but I do...and I'm having hand-made-ornament-remorse...I do hope they'll forgive me...I tried, I really did!
They're in the mail now - ten little, bow-tied boxes, speeding their way across the country and one even went to Scotland! I do hope they all have a merry Christmas and that the other 9 ornaments they get are all FABULOUS!
