Handmade Christmas-ornaments!

You know we all did it, we took that Buy Handmade oath a few years back, but as time went by and the economy tanked we have had to do what we could to get by and still feed the babies.  But handmade doesn't cost an arm and a leg and it bets shopping the big box stores as much as we can.

We have a family tradition of giving the kids a special ornament each year, an ornament the represents their current interests.  I admit yesterday I was a Michael's checking out the selection and I realized I wasn't being true to the cause, so I have collected all the super cute-low cost Handmade Christmas Ornaments I could find.  They just happen to go with our best selling holiday item, the Red Lace Scalloped Tree Skirt and what will be under my tree this year.
