This is my spot to share my creativity through word and paper art.

I really had fun making these ornaments and thought they turned out beautifully. I even decorated "take out" boxes to put them in. I priced them under $5 and only sold a couple. Can't figure that out. Oh well, now I have Christmas presents all ready to give:-) If you've never made these before they are super easy. Buy clear glass balls. Remove the tops and squirt in a bit of Pledge Future Floor Polish (yes, you read that right!). Hold paper towel over opening and Swish around to cover the inside of the ball. Pour excess out. Sprinkle in some super fine glitter ( I like Martha Stewart's) and cover the top with the paper towel again. Shake till inside is coated with glitter. Pour out excess glitter. Put top back on and tie on a pretty ribbon. I also added crystal "stickers" from the $1 bin at Michaels or single crystals/pearls. The ones that are not glittered are made by dabbing on various colors of alcohol inks from Ranger Ink.
