Made from Dirt

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was working on a couple of crafty projects to give as gifts. Now that the recipient (my best friend, Courtney) has received them, I thought I'd share them here.

The first is a wall hanging with Courtney's initial. I used colors that remind me of her and that I know she has in her decor already. The second piece is a simple Christmas ornament, also with her initials (all three this time). We always exchange ornaments at Christmas and for some reason when I saw these letters, which are actually magnets, the idea just came to me.

I'm not generally a very artistic or crafty person, but every now and then I'm inspired.

If that isn't very artistic, I don't know what is.

That is a great idea!

Well done.

Thanks. I really wanted it to have more of a 3-D effect than it ended up with, but it still looked pretty cute. I'm thinking of making one for each of my nieces for their birthdays. I hate having a good idea and only getting to use it once.
