I am second on the list so you are on track~
I love Christmas and I try every year to make homemade { same as handmade :):)}ornaments.  The "grands" are getting old enough they can make ornaments too!!
 
These ornaments are made from cracker jack boxes that were purchased in the 80's.  My sis gave them to me (she knows me all to well:))!! The popcorn had to be dug out, it was hard as a rock but look what cute and different Christmas ornaments the boxes made!!
 
 
 and of course bling makes anything look good!!

Always perks for followers!!! I'll post a winner after the blog hop is over.  Please leave a way for me to contact you:):)
