BYOB 2009 Ornaments

We had a huge group for this year’s annual BYOB (Blow Your Own Ball) party my sister Connie and I host each year at Sonoran Glass Art Academy. We love this annual opportunity to make our own glass ornaments. I don’t have pictures of everyone’s finished projects, but I can share some of mine.

This one reminds me of the ocean with its serene blues and greens. I’d say it’s a favorite, but all my glass ornaments are special to me.

While I don’t get to see holly leaves and berries sprinkled with snow here in Tucson, this ornament will serve as a reminder.

Every mermaid needs a sea shell ornament and now I have a glass one. All that’s needed is to insert a ribbon in each ornament and hang my new treasures on our Christmas tree.

Today I have a scheduled lunch with my friend/neighbor Cindy and then I’ll take all my boxed Christmas gifts to FedEx. I ship everything each year via FedEx Ground which has proved year-after-year to be the most economical solution.

The first ornament is definitely my favorite...it reminds me of Mother Earth.
