Christmas Ornaments

(Apologies in advance for the bad quality of the pictures, I took them in my car as I waited in line to pick up the kids, after all the work I was out of time.)

This year, after a successful RS activity where I orchestrated re-making ornaments, I decided to make an ornament for each employee at work. There's only about 150 of us.

So I took several chunks of time and crunched out several options for them to choose from. Some were simple:

Some were very complex, like painting the continents on these globes:

And others were not so hard because I know a few tricks:

This last one was very popular, even though none of the people I spoke to who picked it guessed that it was supposed to be the North Pole. Ah well.

150? Wow.

All I had time for was a few origami heart flowers done with 3 inch squares of silver wrapping paper (each petal took one square). I had wanted to make several six-sided spheres out of the paper, but it had a brown grid on the back with words that would have shown up too much. Drat.

I should send you one, an itty bitty one made from 1.5 inch squares...probably will require the use of tweezers to get the folds done correctly!

Terrific work, as usual, Sis. Love your inventiveness!

Yeah, now you know why I needed 12 hours of sleep the other night. I guess there is such a thing as too much fun.
