It's so exciting to be participating in Art Bead Scene's ornament blog hop again. The timing of Thanksgiving to Christmas this year is so short. Do you feel rushed, too? Anyway, I just finished my ornaments and the photo session which includes the shoot and editing. I could have shared something already created, as I make and use art beads all the time. Just like most of you. But I really wanted to experiment with a new polymer clay, to me, named Frost. So, I started with Frost mixed with white and glitter. After discovering it's pliability I started using my tiny cutters to combine and create snowflakes. This was fun. I assembled them on the baking tiles and after three rounds in the oven and adding multiple dots and shapes, this is the journey.

Every year I have admired and purchased those rolled cookies that come in a tin. I need to add that it was the tin I wanted...Jesse always eats the cookies. This year I discovered new tins at the store filled with cookies, I bought all twelve tins. I give the cookies away and now have this incredible stash of tins to decorate. First one here...for my oldest Grandson's B-Day.
