During the years we've known each other, around the holidays, we participate in an ornament exchange. I enjoy putting my tree up each year and looking at the various ornaments, remembering where I purchased them or who gave them to me. My Scrap-Chat ornaments are some of those special memories because I always think about who my partner was the year I received that one.
This year, I shopped for Flo. Flo and I have been playing Words with Friends via our iPods for what seems like forever, but in reality is probably just over a year. Flo is a bird watcher, so I knew when I got her name that I wanted some type of bird ornament or nature ornament that would fit her personality. I found the bird theme, but then I was browsing Pinterest one night and saw these: DIY Christmas Ornaments
I knew I had to make one for Flo. So, I got busy using tiles and a tray from a Scrabble set I'd recently purchased for $2 at a yard sale. This was my finished ornament which I included in Flo's package. Since she has received it, I can now post about it!
