    Memories of Christmas Past by Rhonda Thomas

    Ooo, it’s almost Christmas! Design Team Member Rhonda Thomas made FOUR ornaments using the Vintage Victorian Ornaments Kit. (An adorable pair of mittens is shown at right; scroll down just a bit to see a wider photo showing the 3 round ornaments.)

    Here’s some text from Rhonda’s nostalgic blog post to begin:

    I have been with the Alpha Stamps Design Team for so many years, and this Christmas it has occurred to me just how many fond memories have been made, as I unpack and unwrap our Christmas decorations.

    Each year of Design Team work comes with many memories. I remember the things that were going on in my life while creating, and with each ornament that I hang on our tree, or item that I place on the mantle, it brings more memories from the many holidays of the past and how much my girls have grown and the young women they are becoming.

    As I think about this blog post, I think about many of you that receive these creative, unique, and beautiful kits from Alpha Stamps, like this months Vintage Victorian Ornaments Kit. I imagine you have a similar experience in that you have a joy for creating, and that as you come upon something you made in the past, you are blessed with the happy memories that came along with it.

    Take these precious wooden mittens. I instantly thought about fluffy trim and had some Tiny Mixed Size Flat Back Pearls to help. I used images from the Winter Birds Collage Sheet and some simple red seam binding, (a huge favorite for me), which added that little bit of detail that made the mittens really grand.

    Lovely work, Rhonda! And thank you for the kind words, too! I love the “fluffy” cuffs to the mittens, and the pleated seam binding and lace (see below for the lace around one of the round ornaments). Beside these highlights (above and below), here’s the full supply list. And be sure to visit Rhonda’s blog for more photos and info!
