Christmas is so very close and I have just begun to decorate a bit. I was so happy to find these easy handmade ornaments on Nicecrane designs. They are pyramid style and just cut and stack. The vintage style photo are perfect with my theme on this tiny tree this year.
See how cool they look and it was easy! After I made this one I cut out a frame from Spellbinders and attached some twine and hung it up, maybe 20 minutes of time.
I love the way it turns.
The next two are round. This one I attached a Frantaged poinsettia onto the twine for more festive appearance.
I see in this photo where my cutting skills are not perfect but see it still looks fabulous!
I was making my Nicecrane Designs ornaments while I was also making Poppyseed coffee cake. This is a old family recipe and my first try at it, not bad but the dough needs improvement.
I had a chance to use a gift from my friend May in the UK. This apron has the streets of London on it. I really wanted a apron and here it came!
My kids are helping grind up 2 pounds of Poppy seeds
Here is the finished product
Here is my small tree from my bedroom that I decorated with Mays gifts and the Nicecrane Designs ornaments I made.
Here is my burlap ribbon with sparkly sticks behind it. May wrapped my package with the heart and bell so I used it here.
here is Mays bag with the gingerbread in it

Some of my other friends have sent me awesome things too, I can hardly wait to use them too! Thank you May, Ignacio, Sasha, Karen, Sandy, and Christina for your gifts and friendship!!
Have a very Merry week!
