My Favorite Ornament is Homemade and Personal

When this book first launched in September 2008, I received a package in the mail not long after. I glanced at the return address, and upon seeing Karen Robbins' name, I quickly tore into the package.

Karen had made and sent each of the Word Quilters a homemade Christmas ornament that was a miniature cover of A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts. She used a note card provided by Leafwood Publishers, our publishing company, and craftily added Mod Podge and glitter. The result? An astounding treasure commemorating a major milestone in my life--a true Christmas first.

Thank you, Karen, for that special ornament. I loved it then, and continue to enjoy hanging it every year.

I love ornaments that have a thoughtful meaning behind them.
I bet it's beautiful.

Leslie, you are so sweet. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Instructions for making that ornament are on one of our past blog posts.
