when i was young, my mom tried to give us a new ornament each christmas that was a symbol of something that happened that year. for instance, a house ornament would remind us of a move to a new home. i have tried to do the same with my family with my own little twist. i like to make them something. and so this year i made these ornaments for all of us. i love homemade gifts. they mean so much more because i believe they come from the heart.
