DO YOU LIKE MINI'S?

We have all heard the saying, "good things come in small packages," so I decided to make a few mini ornaments and I think they are just as cute as can be.
A set of three mittens, painted a creamy white with pink on the cuff, sugared with German glass glitter and decorated with paper roses.

I think one of these would also look perfect on a gift package or for a teachers gift too!

Speaking of a gift for teacher, or maybe a hostess gift, how cute is this set of mini snowmen. I probably should call them snow people with their pink and white paper roses....HA! These are ornaments and have ribbon hangers, but they are only about 3 or 4" high. They come in a vintage jello mold which I have painted a beautiful pink and then added some snowy glitter. They make a great gift or decoration for a small tree too.

Although this sweet trio of Santa boots are not minis, I wanted to include them in this post. Two pink and two white make up the set. All are painted, iced and then sugared with German glass glitter for a holiday sparkle. Decorated with roses that have been handmade from paper. What a lovely hostess gift as well as hanging on your tree.

Each boot lovely made and decorated by me. I hope you enjoy a peek at what I have been up to this past week.

If you happen to be seeing this post today, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. My wish for you is safety, warmth and the love of family along with some great tasting food!! Lets all be grateful this season for our friendships and what we have been blessed with.

  6. Girly...the program is PAINT SHOP PRO and there are tons of versions. I currently have PPS#10 and #13 but I'm getting ready to buy PHOTOSHOP which, although costly, is the BEST program on the market and the easiest to use from what I understand. It is expensive. but I can get a discount through a local university because my SON-shine works there.

    GO FOR IT! It's a huge undertaking but sooo worth the journey.

    Blessing my sweet friend~
