Hello blog friends and welcome to day 12 of D's Paper Studio's, 12 Days of Home for the Holidays. It’s been really cool reading all about the traditions of each of the artists who participated this year.
Handmade gifts are from the heart, and there’s no better way to share your love and joy for the season than to give something that you’ve made by hand. In our family we have a longstanding tradition of handmade Christmas ornaments. Hand-stitched felt teddy bears, painted wooden ornaments, handmade photo ornaments, some nearly 50 years old hang on our Christmas trees, and every year when we get them out to hang them, it’s an opportunity to share and re-live the memories of Christmas’ past.
I knew there would be some teaching opportunities with the younger ones. We got to learn about cutting, measuring, and folding, and my nieces even mastered the scoreboard.
And, when we discovered that we could use die cut photos to decorate the Christmas rosettes, the ornaments became another way that we could share memories of holidays past.
Thank you again and
Merry Christmas to you and your family,
Photo Tip of the Day
Break all the (photography) rules.
Photography is an art. The photos you take are only as good as you make them. So, get out there and practice. Find your style and have fun. And don’t’ forget to break a few of those photography rules. If you still want more knowledge join a photography forum. There are tons. Personally I’m a member of Clickin’ Moms. They are a great community offering tips and classes. Clickin’ Moms
