Holiday Ornament Swap

I was excited to sign up in time for Freshly Baked and Cake & Pie’s Third Annual Holiday Ornament Swap. I’ve missed it every other year.

This wasn’t my original idea, but the first try didn’t really work out. So I decided to focus on supplies I already had in the house. These little trees are the combination of a felting project gone wrong and embroidery thread left over from my friendship-bracelet-making days.


I used the 2nd largest shape from The Small Object’s Stacking Fabric Trees template. I whip-stitched the cones closed with coordinating embroidery floss & then either embroidered stars or french knots in red & yellow. I threaded rickrack through the cone’s opening & added a bell on the inside for some fun. The bottoms are stitched closed with some coordinating wool felt left over from a stocking project a few years ago.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
    into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.

    This is accepted anywhere, possesses quality value, relatively safe and can
    be traded easily. Are numismatic coins the hands-down favorite
    for precious metal investors or are there
    better options. 995 to make them acceptable as legal tender as well.

    Though smartphone are filled with exquisite features which makes them
    highly enticing and user friendly. Now this clicks very well for a middle level smartphone device that offers
    you both the conventional full QWERTY key board as well as the touch sensitive display
    screen. That is certainly while the E73 Style is, a fabulous slightly reworked release of this E72
    utilizing T-Mobile advertising together with, keep in mind, program just for 3G in T-Mobile’s AWS bandz.

    In a society that is always on the move, efficiency and
    productivity is essential. Also, Apple has answered the
    prayers of users with the inclusion of a
    new front-facing camera, enabling one to snap pictures and video whilst still looking at the screen.
    The following are some of the features of the Black – Berry smart
