Our ATC swap this month was to make three Christmas ATC ornaments. Two went to a secret "sis" and the third went on the store's tree. A real toughie for me. I don't typically make Christmas ornaments and I plain wasn't ready for Christmas!! I was still trying to figure out where Thanksgiving went, and also Fourth of July!
I whined at the swap's "leader", Marilyn Rock who is a very talented artist. She "un-stuck" me by informing me that my secret sis LOVED animals. OK - I can really connect to this lady! One of her favorite animals was sheep so I ran with it. I modeled this ornament after one of my FAVORITE jeweley designers: Sandra Mann - the Earring Lady. What I like about this little critter is she can be displayed all year round. Perhaps it is not very "Christmas-y" so I made a little "Christmas" ATC-sized holder for it. I had fun making this little critter. I love the bow on it's little bum! She makes me smile!
