Saturday, Zeb and I scored a huge bag of wood pieces for $4 at the thrift store. About three times as many as are pictured here. Today on our YouTube live he painted them and used some Iron Orchid Design stamps to make them in to ornaments. We snagged the ribbon toppers from last weeks IKEA haul. I can’t wait to put these unique ornaments on my tree. I think I might do a little distressing and white wax. Do you like that idea? Now I need to take a rest.
