Special ornament!

Guess what we did this weekend?  

We decorated our home for Christmas!   I know, I know...it is a bit early!

BUT----

I have 5 craft shows over the next few weeks and a couple of parties to attend and this was our only weekend to get it done without rushing.  I love the holidays!  The lights and glitter are just a few of my favorites.

After putting all the ornaments on the tree, I felt a little sad that I did not have anything to celebrate the arrival of our baby girl!

So...I made a special ornament, just for her!  It love it!  

I drew and painted the country of Africa and of course added black glitter so it will sparkle!  (My dear hubby, while getting the broom, had the nerve to say, "more glitter, does glitter have to go on everything thing you make?") Where Ethiopia is--I placed a small red swarovski crystal (because I like bling too!).  On the back it reads, "waiting with Love!"  And, the year 2008.  

I can't wait to add these photos to Ava's life book.  Even though she won't be with us physically this holiday season...we are waiting with Love!













***If you are interested in purchasing your own "waiting with love" ornament, please email me at tulioab@hotmail.com.   $ 10 plus shipping.   All proceeds will go toward our international program fee***

***I can add a name too!  Feel free to request different colors for the writing and crystal***
