Christmas Ornaments

My friend wanted to do something a little extra nice for her kids' teachers for the holidays so she asked me to created these personalized ornaments for each teacher.  Needless to say, the teachers loved them!  I have so much respect for teachers that I never turn down an offer to do something special for them.

I hope all of you have finished all of your holiday baking and shopping.  Wishing everyone: 
 Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah
Happy Holidays
Happy New Year!

Star for a day

I made these star-shaped favors for a friend's daughter's first birthday party.  I chose the stars because it had signficance to the girls name "tara" which means star in Hindi.
