BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE…

Where I just spent the last 20 minutes with no coat on taking pictures of my wonderful handmade ornies and Christmas presents from our exchange. For some reason my camera was NOT cooperating and taking good pictures indoors – flash made everything white and no flash made everything blurry – and I don’t think it’s my eyes! or a fuzzy lens! So hmm, what to do? Ah ha! outside, although the sun is not shining, it was brighter than indoors so I schlepped everything outside and with my trusty camera took pix of everything, trotted downstairs to the computer and loaded everything on. ONLY TO FIND that all the pictures were once again blurry and dark! Flash does not appear to be working anymore (well what can you say – the camera was free with my old printer and is probably 10 years old). So when Gord got home I trotted outside once again for another 15 minutes of setting up in the snow and taking pictures with the iPhone. Back downstairs to the computer (shivering from the cold!!!) where I loaded the new pictures on and yeahhhhhh finally pix that actually do justice to these little works of art.

This exchange of hand made ornaments and a gift (again hand made and under 10 dollars – well maybe 50 hours of work and 10 dollars of materials!) has become a tradition. A wonderful tradition! with amazing work each year. I am so blessed to have such wonderful, creative, lovely ladies in my life… and am trying to narrow down ideas for next years exchange…

And so, without further ado… (should point out that the 4 pictures at the bottom are actually presents not ornies – the bottom one is mine. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of all the presents that were exchanged – next year!!!)…
