It’s been a hard week here in the States in the wake of the tragedy in Connecticut, and it didn’t feel quite right for me to be enjoying the Christmas season, drinking hot chocolate, and singing carols when so many families are experiencing a heartbreaking loss. But I guess that’s what Christmas is here for, right? An unexpected light in a time of darkness, a reason to temper grief with at least a little joy. So the Christmas tree seems just a little more beautiful to me this year, even more so thanks to Kelli‘s holiday ornament exchange. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves (click on the photo to be taken to the tutorial for each ornament).
Let’s pretend like there’s a gorgeous photo of Dixie’s starlight mint ornament (which definitely isn’t missing because it was way out of focus and I’m already out of town… that would NEVER happen).
I look forward to treasuring these ornaments for years to come. Thanks again, Kelli, for your beautiful idea!
