Beaded Ornaments #3

Here are the 2 ornaments that I made today for my mom and mother-in-law--yup, on Christmas Eve day. I should've gotten these done weeks ago, but have been terribly busy and then this week I'm sick, but I just can't tell them on Christmas day that their gift is coming, so!!

(You can click the pics to see more detail)

I had my girls help string the beads and then I glued them on. They are actually put on with straight pins, but you have to dip the end of every pin into glue first so they don't come out! I will never wait til the day before to start this kind of project ever again! It's not fun having the flu & whipping 2 of these babies out. Pretty much took us all day. But, they are made with love, so I really shouldn't be complaining, huh?

I do realize that I need to take some photography courses one of these days, LoL!! Just can't seem to get a good shot so matter what--especially in the evening. They are much prettier IRL.

At least I don't have to worry about them seeing them b4 I give them cause neither of them have the internet. (although I sure WISH that they did!). Thanks for stopping by!
