Xmas Ornament Countdown Week 2

by - Saturday, August 23, 2008

It's Saturday once again. How fast time flies. I just realised it's been a while since I've updated my blog. I just started on a new job and I've been busy as a bee. Hopefully I get settled comfortably on my new schedule so I can go back to my normal daily blogging routine. If not, I may have to update my blog in bulk once or twice a week. That sucks since I love to deliver something fresh and new everyday.

It's the second week of Christmas Ornament Countdown. This week, I made a pair of felt gingerbread boy and gal using my tin cookie cutters as template. I tried to make them as lifelike yummy looking as possible. For gingerbread boy, I used mint coloured buttons and white embroidery thread to imitate candy buttons and cookie frosting. For gingerbread girl, I used pink mini ric rac and lavender buttons for added sweetness. I used coffee coloured felt to make the ornaments look cookie-ish as possible! Of course, instead of photographing, I plopped them on the scanner to make them look like freshly baked goodies that they are!

My cute fabric find. Giddy yup!

I share Hanna's love for all things cute and girly! No matter what my age, I'll always be 11 years old giddy. Indeed, I truly believe in keeping one's inner child alive and happy. I paint my own blue skies, string pearls of rainbows, walk on green grass like it's holy ground and just wonder at the beauty of this earth and the great opportunity of being alive and connected to all that is.
