All you have to do is leave your comments each day!  AND if you become a new follower of this blog, I'll give you a second entry FOR EACH DAY in the big drawing!!!

**VERY IMPORTANT** 
Please leave your contact information should you be the lucky winner!!


Sorry about the crappy photos. I let my camera do the auto thing and they don't look much better than if I had manually set everything myself. LOL I hope you can see though how cute this ornament turned out! I'm pleased with it and I think my mom will love adding it to her tree with the others I made for her.

I'm not really much of a popsicle stick crafter, but this idea was so cute I had to make it! I scoured the kitchen junk drawer and found just enough of them to make this sweet little sled! I'd been waiting for my woodgrain background stamp to arrive just so I could make this one. The original is covered in cute paper, but I wanted mine to be more rustic-slash-shabby looking and I do think I achieved that with the woodgrain stamping on the sticks. It was such a fun project, and I think kids would really enjoy it too. Very quick and easy, and heck, popsicle sticks! Kids love popsicle stick projects. How fun would this be for a Sunday School craft, classmate gifts, or add to packages for gift tags with name on the banner - a personalized ornament in addition to the gift.



Flowers and foliage blinged up with a little silver stickles. Here it is on the tree.
Sentiment banner.

The back/bottom of the sled. So cute, isn't it?!

  26. I adore this ornament! My kids would love to hang these on the tree. (Of course, I'd probably have to substitute something for the flowers for my two sons and one tomboy! My youngest daughter, who's watching over my shoulder, loves it just the way it is...snowflakes included!)
