Well, this year I just couldn't find ANY that I liked. Some would be ... alright. But not just right. Not special. I didn't want to pick something just to have an ornament.
So at the last moment, I decided I would make ornaments. I wanted them to be special and I began pondering ideas. I thought about photos and I really wanted to be able to add a note. (I often write notes on the boxes that the ornaments come in.) I asked friends for suggestions and then wandered around the craft store.
Then, I found it. Just the right item that would fill all my desires. I found little star-shaped paper mache' boxes. Perfect for adding something to - and putting a little note inside.
