ChristmasTraditions 72 Dpi

Making handmade Christmas ornaments is a tradition in my family. I've included the journaling here since the font is probably too small to read at 72 dpi. Supplies are in the EXIF.

 

"One of my family traditions is making Christmas ornaments. My mother learned to make hand-beaded ornaments from Woman’s Day magazine as a child. She taught her mother and sister to make them as she was growing up, and taught me to make them when I was a child. I grew up with my parents’ tree decorated mostly with those hand-beaded ornaments made by my mother and grandmother. Now, my favorite and most meaningful Christmas decoration is my Christmas tree decorated almost entirely with handmade ornaments. From top to bottom, about 90% of the ornaments were made by various members of my family. This tree, and its handmade ornaments, is a beautiful reminder of so many precious family members who poured their love into those ornaments and my life."
