I am so sorry to have seemingly fallen off the face of cyber-earth during the ABS Ornament Challenge! My computer contracted a nasty virus just two days before the reveal and I was only able to pick it up from the computer hospital yesterday. Yes, that is actually what the place I use is called! So for now we are up and running again but I have learned not to be too optimistic when my laptop is concerned. May be time for a new one!!
So finally here is the ornament I created using Mary Harding's Heart Shape Pine Cone Pendant. I found Mary through one of the many beading magazines I read each month and she is one of my favorite Etsy sellers and has become a really great internet friend as well. Thanks, Mary!
I absolutely love this piece and although I originally bought it with plans to make a jewelry piece to sell, I realized I loved it too much to let it go. So for now it will find an honored place on my tree and then after Christmas I think it will find a more permanent home rather than put it away with the rest of the decorations. It would make a great winter decoration in my kitchen.
