|A wishing star ornament (This is NOT the exchange ornament!)|
Originally, we had a couple of ideas of what to paint and I had prepared some boards to paint on for each of us, but when Michelle saw the little ornaments hanging to dry for our ornament exchange at Studio JRU, she just had to make one for herself, too. I was happy that she wanted to, because I needed to work on them.
By now, I had a step by step process, because you can't make 10 little ornaments without a little organization, right. I also enjoyed teaching her little things I've learned along the way. We talked about what women talk about and drank coffee. It was so much fun. I could get addicted to this. I can't show you the ornament until Dec. 10, so the one above is another very different one I made.
I also want to give a special thanks to my friend, Kelly at Kelly Berkey Designs for posting my painting and having the challenge that introduced me to many of you. I wish you could join me and paint one Saturday, too.
