Day #4 handmade ornaments


Os enfeites handmade são uma presença constante na casa de qualquer crafter! :) Curioso que não tenho nenhum enfeite feito por mim para a árvore de Natal. Já fiz imensos ao longo dos anos mas sempre oferecidos ou enviados em troquinhas! Por outro lado, tenho uma grande colecção de lindas peças que fui recebendo ao longo dos anos, enviadas dos quatro cantos do globo :D

Costumo espalhar os diferentes bordados e feltros pela casa, cada qual num sitio especial. Este ano fiz algo diferente. Temos um conjunto de prateleiras onde colocamos várias fotos da família e amigos, uma espécie de memorabilia, com momentos que gostamos de recordar :) Resolvi decorar essas mesmas prateleiras, intercalando as fotos com os enfeites handmade que me recordam cada amiga que os fez :D Não vos irei mostrar aqui no blog porque são fotos pessoais (e não apenas nossas), não é algo que vá publicar aqui mas garanto-vos que ficou um display bonito =)

Para preencher a lacuna dos enfeites feitos por mim, reuni algumas ideias de peças que tenho mesmo de tentar fazer :D Acho que vocês conseguem adivinhar qual é o mais especial aqui ;) hehehehe



Handmade ornaments are a constant presence in any crafter's house! :) It's curious the fact than I don't have one single tree ornament made by.. me :p I've done plenty over the years but always offering or sending on exchanges! On the other hand, I have a large collection of beautiful pieces I've been gathering over the years, sent from all four corners of the globe :D

I usually spread the different stitched and felted pieces around the house, each one in a special place. This year I did something different. We have a set of shelves where we put photos of family and friends, a sort of memorabilia, with moments we like to remember :) I decided to decorate those same shelves, placing between the photos, all the handmade ornaments that remind me each friend who made it :D I won't show you here because it has personal pictures (not just ours), it's not something that I'll publish but I assure you it's a beautiful display =)

To fill the gap of my own handmade ornaments, I have a list of ideas that I really need to give it a try :D I think you can guess which one is most special on the mosaic ;) hehehehe

so we can still see how the shelf looks like.. it's sounds awesome!!!

here I have a only handmade ornament tree, and my cute son Noah told me this afternoon, that he didn't like it..
It's a tree with no color, no real balls, and only selfmadecrafts.. it's not a xmas tree..
So be happy with you REAL tree.. mine is a fake fake one.. lol..

Stitching Noni said...

I love handmade ornaments... But it don't have any that I have made either... But I do have some that other lovely people have sent me over the last couple of years... I might have to take a pic this year to show you :) I had great plans this year of making some more ornaments, but I have run out of time again.. The story of my life!!!
Hugs x

Brigitte said...

Haha, the same here. All the ornaments I ever stitched have been given as gifts. But I have wonderful ornaments for our tree - all of them were made by my children when they were still kids. They are so precious to me.
