December 23 Bonus
As requested, here are some pictures of the Family ornament I made.
And this is for Doreen (you can see her little bird nest on her blog)
Melissa made 25 of them, to give to her teachers and friends. She finished them just in time, to hand out on the last day of school before winter break. I did hot-glue them all together for her to help her get them done. This one is mine 🙂
OMG, my MIL would be so proud!! 25! Wow, she really did love them. What a great job she did, I thought I was looking at my own, lol! I called George over to see it and he had no clue what I was talking about………….men, grrrr! I kept saying “don’t you remember?” It clicked when i showed him ours…………but geez, Melissa’s is identical!!! Tell her great job and no dobut made my mil smile today!!!
Oh, love the family ornament too, love the idea of the names making the circle!

I think yours is much prettier. I like the look of the torn paper. There was just no time to try and go for that with these, since there were so many of them. And because these were so last minute, there was no time to put the green bows on the ones that Melissa was giving away. Mine is the only one with the bow.
Crocheting is Melissa’s new passion, so this was the perfect project for her.

I love that Melissa is becoming crafty like you. These are such a fun idea. I popped in to Doreen’s blog. But I thought it would be odd for me to post there since I don’t really know her. She has some fun stuff there though.

I think Melissa’s is perfect. What a thoughtful gift to give everyone. Especially because she crocheted all those nests for them. LOVE it!

She’s so proud that everyone likes her nests 🙂
And Anjeanette, I can’t speak for Doreen, but EVERYONE is welcome to comment on MY blog, whether they know me or not. Sometimes you just have to jump in, and it’s nice to get to know someone, even if it’s through a blog (theirs or your own).

LOL Okay I’m really starting to feel left out of this whole Planter’s thing.

What a beautiful family ornament. I love this so much. And the bird’s nest is also beautiful, but the thought behind it is wonderful!

Melissa did a fantabulous job on that ornament.

more craftyness coming from your way. I love that little nest and such a cute gift for a teacher. I have no idea how you managed to write so perfect on the FAMILY ornament

I need a bird nest ornament. Hint hint, Melissa. 🙂
These turned out so great.
And I love my ornament you made me like this last year…I wondered the same thing about how you get the writing so nice and neat!

Love the family ornament!
Melissa is so good at crocheting and I just LOVE my little bird nest! I’m telling you she could make some money selling her crochet work, it so wonderful! 😉

Thanks so much, everyone.
Treva, I’ll have to look through the peanuts, to see if there are any nice looking ones left. If so, I’m sure Melissa would love to make you a little nest.
As for the Family ornament, I think I wrote the names on a strip of paper first and then used it as a guide to get them even around the ornament.
