crafty tree trimmings: six festive ornaments to make

I'm back! We've had some seriously busy weeks around here—sorry for the absence. I simply had to let some things go and blogging was one of them. I hope to get into my routine again even though things are still not back to normal at all. But enough about that...

After such a long absence, I knew I couldn't show up empty handed and I think I picked the right project to accompany my comeback. It's my first ebook collaboration with Diane Gilleland and I love it. It's always so hard to be quiet about projects such as these, so it's really exciting to finally be unveiling this today.

Our very talented contributors are: Susan Beal, Linda Permann, Kayte Terry and Betz White. Each one of us came up with a holiday ornament that fits each of our styles. The results are six very distinct and fun ornaments to make. I created the paper globe ornament below and designed the book itself.

There's an added bonus for anyone that orders this ebook—part of its proceeds will go to charity. We've decided to donate 15% of our sales to Project Linus, an organization that donates handmade blankets and afghans to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need.

My house is still a wreck (reconstruction still to come... sigh), so it would be a serious crime to bring any new materials home. Even though I'd like to try to make all the ornaments, I'll be tackling only the ones that just require me going to my crafty stash.

If you're interested in joining me with some holiday making fun and helping a worthy cause, you can purchase the book at the CraftyPod shop until December 31st.
