Early Christmas Gifts

Look what I got for Christmas!! A Tim Holtz Vagabond!! Whooo Hooo!!! I took it out of the box but have only had time to run an embossing folder through it just to see how it works. Can't wait to have more time to play with it.
My friend Jeanne made this wonderful crown for me out of felt. Isn't it the cutest thing you have ever seen?
My friend Carla who will tell you she is not crafty (but she can be when she wants to) made this wreath. She surprised me and made several this season as gifts for family and friends. She did a great job!
I saw this idea on another blog and I am so sorry because I can't give credit where I saw it. I thought is was a cute idea. I made them for the ladies in one of my art groups. Just get the clear ornaments and fill with buttons. The cool thing though about them is, and you probably can't see it from these photos, but I took the cap off the ornament and pulled out the wire from the cap. Ran the wire through a button then put it back in the cap and then back inside the ornament. Really cute! I then tied lace and ric rac on the cap. Glued a button over the knot.

My friend Melody made this ornament. Love it! The bird inside the cage is so sweet.
