PHOTO HUNT #17 -- ORIGINAL


PHOTO HUNTERS HOME
This was a hard one because I could post someone's else's ORIGINAL items or my own. Finally I decided to do my own BUT then I had lots to choose from and couldn't decide on just a few so I chose to post many this time.

First of all, this is last year's Christmas wreath. I made the wreath myself and tied the bow too. The metal words, Christmas balls and frame are bought items. It was definitely an original.


This silly snowman is original -- I know as I made it last winter!


I made this felt Christmas ornament 40 years ago for our first Christmas tree after I was married.


The rest of these are a few of the cards I have made. I have been stampin' just a few years now and it is one of my favorite hobbies. Some of the cards are made from photos I took instead of stampin'.

Love the snowman. We don't often get a lot of snow here so don't have the opportunity to make them as much as we'd like.

You are very talented! I especially liked your snowman. I wish we could have a snow big enough to make one. It has been 5 years since we have had a good snow (in TN).

Paulie,
If you will notice, I said "the" churches of Clarksville, not "all" the churches. These are just some I saw on my walks in that city. I was staying near Austin-Peay University. These were the ones I photographed as I walked in the area. I'm sure there are others. I also photographed a sign containing the 10 commandments. Rare to see in a public place these days.
