Exciting news! The wonderful group who organized Ornament Thursday over the 2007 Holiday Season has expanded the project for all of 2008, and I have been invited to join in!
The project is a little different from the 2007 weekly commitment, with a new on theme “ornament” or craft project to be posted by artists on the last Thursday of each month. While I wasn’t able to commit to January’s project (between teaching, birthdays and other commitments, the deadline came up way too quickly and I didn’t want to disappoint!), look for a couple of Valentine’s Day themed projects very, very soon.
So here we are – off to check out what the Ornament Thursday Gals have been doing! Enjoy.
