My lovely Victorian angel has been packed away for about 6 years. I made her in the late 90's and got her out again, and decided that she should be at the top of the living room tree again. I put her away, because every year my tree was evolving and I would try doing something different to the top each year. I have had a Victorian tree for about 21 years now. Even this year I said, "I am not putting those bows on the tree," but I just couldn't help it. They were the last to go up on the tree. The angel was the first thing that went up there, and it feels like this is where she belongs.
I made 12 of these ornaments with the scripture in Luke. They come out every year.
Another handmade ornament from the 90's, but I still love these ones.. I would love to make more of
these even now.
This is the first of my trees to be completed. I have another elaborate one I do downstairs. Don't exactly know then I will get to that one.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
