I'm so into the holiday spirit! I love making things
at this time of year. I am in an ornament swap and
I made 3 of these to send:

I had so much fun making them I think I'm going to make
a few more for my tree & for some family & friends. They
are so EASY and festive :D
My sweet friend Danielle tagged me the other day.
I have to list 7 random things about myself. I've done this before
but I just thought of 7 more random things you might not know
about me...
1. I love love love broccoli. BUT I only want the "tree" part. NOT
the trunks...yuck. I have this fetish about the trunks.
I will not eat them.
2. when I was a little girl I used to walk around with a stick of
butter and eat it like it was a lollipop. My mom would always
have to hide the sticks of butter because I would sneak in the fridge
and go to town...I think of that now and go..."EWWWW" :P
3. Why do I think that every time I go in Target or Walmart I have
to push a cart? Random...but so me.
4. I have to turn on my alarm clock 3 times. Why? OCD perhaps? LOL!
5. My hubby & I met over the phone. Totally work related. What were
YOU thinking? NOT that way! I worked for my parents here in Texas...
he worked for a company that we bought parts from in California...
6. I bought 3 of the CUTEST pink flocked Christmas trees the other day.
they're prelit too...I can't wait to decorate this weekend!
7. I'm a list girl...I can't survive unless I have my list to go by.
If you're reading this...tag you're it.
I'm sorry I neglected my blog the past few days...a sinus bug hit me
like I've never been hit before and I was down & out for the count!
Not pretty..plus my hubby had to fly out of town for a family funeral.
Good thing my kids are teenagers and can take care of themselves huh!
They even took good care of me! :D

That's all folks....have a GREAT day!

I love your ornaments!!

After seeing the Glue Glider on your blog I had to get my own, thanks for the push, I love it! I also added the Brighton crown charm to my list. I guess I just wanna be like you!

Leigh said...

Love the ornaments you made and the list you shared. Apparently, the trunks of the broccoli are more nutritious than the leaves part. ;)

Jennifer Y said...

Gorgeous ornaments Leslie! I may have to "lift" those! I am missing my Holiday projects from Recollections that we did every year!! :(( Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I have to pop over to LT to see what I can find!!!

Chrys said...

I LOVE that ornament!!!!! So cute!!! Love all the randoms of you! Butter huh? Remember that commerical years ago where the kids were eating everything in the fridge and in the middle of the night the dad comes down and finds one of the boys eating butter and says "Are YOU eating BUTTER???" Dh and I always say that our boys will end up doing that when their older cause they eat everything in sight! Have a great day girlie!!!

That ornament is gorgeous! Love it!
And talk about wierd! My daughter has the butter (in her case margarine) thing too! She would go in the fridge, open the lid, scoop it out with her hand and eat it! I lost count of how many times I caught her doing that! Guess she's not an anomoly (spelling?) after all! LOL.... She's in great company though!

SweetSugarBelle said...

I LOVE these so much! They are my fave Christmas idea so far!

Kbresh1 said...

LOVE your ornament but (sigh) how did you do it? Do you have directions?

ChicCrafter said...

Love the idea! I have lots of buttons at my crafty drawer and I don't know why I bought it. But now I have reason where to use it. Thanks again!


Janice said...

I LOVE the button ornaments! Do you have a good source for supplies? I bought stuff around here to make one to see how much they'd take and they are quite spendy, especially when we were thinking of making them for our 25 girls in church:) Any help and suggestion welcome 'cause I really wanna make 'em and am looking for a way to justify it;) thanks

Kei said...

I LOVE those ornaments! They're so fun and colourful!

Johanson Family said...

I cannot believe something as simple as a button and pin could turn into something so gosh darn cute!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE This!!! Where in the world did you come up with this! I always say I'm craft challenged and its because I can't think of things like this.. Its beautiful!! I wish I was the receiving swap friend.

Love the button ornament! Did you spray paint the styrofoam ornament before "pinning" the buttons? How did you attach the ribbon hanger?
