A look back at christmas' past

In addition to this year's unveiling, I thought it might be fun to showcase some of the ornaments from years past... so I will post some samples over the next few days..

These are from 2009

 The heart was hand-cut from a chunk of styrofoam, then "iced" with plaster (like you'd ice a cake). 
The window transomes are hand-poured plaster  using a mold I made from an old doll house window.  Sandpaper and paint ages cured plaster quite well.
The way these swaps work is simple:

Each artist creates 12 original ornaments, gift wraps them uniquely, and mails one to each player before Dec 1st. With 12 gifts in hand, we then start opening them, one per day, starting Dec 1st.

Fa La La La La La La La Fun!
