~Thinking about Christmas~

 Hello my friends.  I want to thank you for all of your kind words and prayers for my family this week. It really meant a lot to me and especially to my daughter.

I've been working on domino ornaments the last couple of days. I can't show you all of them because I'm waiting for my order of alcohol ink to arrive.   I can't wait til it gets here! This first photo isn't of an ornament but a magnet. The word "Faith" was in the way for me to drill a hole into the domino-so it became a magnet. :) I added a little rhinestone on the front of it too. 
 I found some really cute retro images on Etsy but this is the only one of them that I will show you for this post. The others are getting the new alcohol ink (as soon as it arrives).

 Some of the dominoes, I glued some rhinestones in the holes. I think the lights of the Christmas tree will really make them sparkle.
 I love this image on this domino. I glued some gold tinsel around the edges after I inked the whole thing with "latte" alcohol ink.  Added some glass pearls to the top with a little lace.
 I outlined the image with ice stickles in "gold ice".
 I outlined this image with stickles too.  
 More bling on the back for some added sparkle.
 This one has nothing to do with Christmas but thought I would share it anyway. I made this magnet for my friend, Debbie. She has a granddaughter named Kiera and this little girl looks JUST like her! I got this image form Paper Whimsy-which you know I love!  Debbie's granddaughter loves to sing so...that's what I put on the magnet!  You should see this one in real life-well, you should see all of them in real life. The photos don't do them justice. The colors are more vibrant. And this domino looks so vintage-I just love it! I'm going to have to make one for me, now!
Well, stay tuned. Because as soon as I can I'll be posting more! I will be placing them in my shop. Dont' know what to get someone for Christmas? Limited budget? They have everything? Well...get them domino ornaments or magnets or...necklaces! I will be posting them in my shop, shortly, if interested.

I hope you're enjoying your Labor Day weekend, dear friends. What did you do this weekend? Anything fun? Crafting, garage sales, antiquing, camping...? I would love to hear! Whatever it is, please stay safe.

Many blessings and hugs,

Dear Sonya, so sorry to read about the loss of your son-in-law last year. He was such a handsome man and sounds like he was a great guy. This past year surely was hard for your daughter but I know she had your love and support to see her through.

You are constantly making such lovely magnets, collages, necklaces and ornaments. How fun to see that you were able to visit Barbara Jean's place again.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Tammy
