I am the opposite of crafty, although this morning Brad told me that I am always really happy when I do get my craft on, and I've just never noticed. Whatever. I felt like I was channeling my mother yesterday, who has been a painter for as long as I remember. And it was fun. I MADE THREE!
My friend Jess had an ornament making party. She's the one who had the starfish Santa idea. Lacking confidence, I only brought colored ornaments and paint pens, inspired by this video:
Quick Gilded Ornaments - Better Homes and Gardens

Jen brought a ribbon ornament idea that I didn't do because I was too busy happily making Santas. But still, the ornament is beautiful:
Then, using spare beads from the ribbon ornarment, Jen also made shell angels similar to this, but without the crown:

Between the wine, the Christmas movie, good company, and my darling Santas, the entire night was a success. I'm looking forward to next year's party already.And honestly, if I can do it, you can. Promise.
