I hope everyone had a happy holidays. I always liked the look of bare branches against sky. I saw this tree with ornaments while I was going for a walk. I liked that it had a Christmas theme yet was also different than the usual holiday displays I see.

Christmas is fast approaching. Here is a collection of links for handmade ornaments. They can be good gifts and are very quick to make. Growing up, my aunt would give us handmade ornaments each year. My grandmother also liked to send handmade ornaments. My mom always appreciated receiving them and has kept them for years.

Little knitted trees
I posted this link last year but this crocheted robin is so cute I ended up making it again this year
If you know how to quilt, these ornaments are very cute

When I first started my shop, I really wanted to make pieces that use a variety of techniques. Along those lines, I made this necklace combining wirework and wire crochet techniques.
Around the same time, I made 3 wire crochet circles in orange and gold. I originally was going to make the same necklace using orange and gold instead of blue and silver.
After it sat on my desk unfinished for weeks, I finally got an idea for a necklace and finished it last week. I love how it turned out. In fact, I liked it so much I made one just like it in blue.
