Handmade Christmas Ornaments

This is our family room Christmas tree full of handmade ornaments. Well, not all are handmade but most have been lovingly made over the years by me, the kids, and extended family.
This is one made for me by my Grandmother in 1976 (as you can see). I was 3 years old. I really wish I had done this for my kids when they were little. It would look kind of silly now… large hand ornaments all over the tree!

Every year my Aunt Barbara makes ornaments for my three kids. Here you can see a stocking ornament and some mitten ornaments. She always puts their first initials on them so they remember which ones are theirs. They will have a nice collection of ornaments to take with them when they have their own homes. 

This is my mouse in a hammock ornament. He is sleeping in a blanket made with the cutest fabric of little Santas. This fabric reminds me of my Grandmother because it was in her fabric stash years ago. The pattern for Mouse in Hammock is on my etsy shop. 

And look at Nick today! He is getting into mischief again. He has kidnapped one of Sarah's stuffed animals (a hedgehog) and climbed up the chandelier. 
 
Happy holiday decorating!
