Making kitty proof ornaments for our Christmas Tree

Star for top of Christmas Tree
Here are some pictures from our ornament making session last night. There was a lot of blood, sweat, tears and glitter glue. The star he's working on is for the top of the tree. We are in my very cramped studio. I still haven't gotten the larger room ready to turn into a studio. Actually, I'm taking over the whole upstairs and keeping this yellow room I'm going to call my "Drawing Studio" because I have a drafting table in it that was my dad's. I'll use the other room for mixed media maybe. I'm not sure yet. I don't know yet if it will even work, but we'll see. See my studio pictures here.

apparently it needed more glitter
Well it got ugly before it ended but that's life with a four year old. He's in time out as I write this... haha...

We made more ornaments today and used yet even more glitter and put up the ornaments that had dried from last night. They won't win any contests but we had fun and the memories will last a lifetime, but the ornaments may not last the season with the kittens. I'll just have to take more pictures.

I thought no better the day to start this back up again. It may be sporadic, but oh well, it's here today :)

  1. Oh he is so cute. I know what you mean about it starts out fun but ends up on the naughty chair. Little boys are so silly! I love the ornaments he made. He is just adorable.

  2. Well, it looks like you had a great time! Too bad those smiles ended up in frowns. LOL And maybe you can keep these ornaments toward the top of the tree - or hang them from the ceiling? :) Theresa

  3. I read your last post and I have to admit it made me chuckle, not that you were having a miserable time but because I could completely relate!
    Making your ornaments is a great idea, you won't have to worry about Asher, or the kittens breaking any precious ornaments and you can take pictures of your lovely homemade tree that will be treasured.
    I love the photos of the creative mess, it looks like fun (minus the ending of course).

  4. And those ornaments will be among the ones you cherish the most! I finally finished decorating my house and will be posting as soon as I gets the kids off to school. You've inspired me to include *my* tree topper, a self portrait angel that my Emmie (today is her 15th b-day, btw:)) made when she was three....it is my favorite thing on my tree!

  5. Yay for glitter glue!! What a lovely way to make some new decorations (and memories!) for Christmas :) hope you get some time to wind down soon :) xx

  6. Let's add this to your list: FAST-DRYING glitter glue.
    I helped 30 kids make Christmas cards for their little friend in India. All those cards someone set upright with glitter glue on them...drips all the way off the card...what a mess!


I love it that you are wanting to comment but please know that I have moved my current blog (this is the old host). You can now find me at www.jaimehaney.com/blog and leave a comment there. This very same post is on there, as I have picked up the whole kit and kaboodle and moved it. I hope to see you! Please come by and say howdy!
