from our family get together the other night...mom will pass out that I have actually posted 4 times in one day - BUT, I wanted to share everything before I forgot!
I finished these up last night - I wanted to show you what the others painted, but sent them home with the kids for their tree without taking a photo!
Grab some clear glass ornaments, brushes, air bake enamel paint and some glitter glue and create away!
Remember, handmade is always better...

for a great pot of Rick's Santa Fe Soup (Aunt Betsy originally gave us the fantastic recipe!) and to paint Christmas ornaments! It was quite fun and definitely entertaining!
Mom's are, of course, perfect - like the work she does in her birdnestontheground studio!
Lindsay (Ty's girlfriend) was so cute, just putting paint and glitter on the ornaments ninety to nothing, not worrying about a thing!
Then there was Ty - I'm not sure if he thought he was too cool to paint one, but he did - only one but at least he contributed and actually enjoyed - I think!
And last but not least, Dad - impatient as all get out and paint going everywhere except where he wanted it! It was absolutely hysterical! I don't think he'll take up painting on a regular basis any time soon, but he's sure to appease me from time to time!
Get together with your family for a night of food and a craft or game...we don't do this nearly enough...we made more memories and hope you will too...
done to coincide with my friend Nancy's birthday! Her sweet hubby Rob called me one day, asking if I would do some paintings for their newly decorated living room...I was flattered! I snuck over to the house to look at where they would be hanging and to decide on colors...they had some beautiful patchwork pillows on the sofa that were our inspiration, an idea from Rob himself...turned out great and she loved them, thank the Lord! It was a blessing to get to do...
