Christmas head start – ornaments

I know, Halloween is not even here yet, but I need to get a head start on Christmas as that is my busy season with my entertainment business.
I picked up some clear glass balls and used what I had around the house to come up with these; feathers, trim and fake snow.  So pretty.
DSC07197 I will be making personalized ornaments as gifts this year. Ideas are twirling in my mind.
Have you started your Christmas gifts yet?
Don’t forget about my first Linky Party coming up this Saturday (you can post on Friday at 4:00 PM)
I would love for you to participate. Come and show us what you have found or done with your Junk and thrifty finds.
