Hello! and Happy December.
This month my posts will revolve around some DIY gift making because it’s that season again. At the start of the month, I had my ovarian cancer support group luncheon. We meet once a month for to share our stories and catch up on each other’s lives. For December it was our holiday luncheon and voluntary gift swap. When I think of these amazing ladies, I think of their presence and stories, and I knew I wanted to make something extra special to give them.
One evening while watching some Mike Deakin videos on YouTube I saw the Dina Wakley “Gal Quotes” stamps used in one of his videos and a light bulb went on. I knew I had to use them for some holiday ornaments.
To start I bought some 4″ round wood ornaments on Amazon. Then I painted them teal (the ovarian cancer color) and using embossing ink and black glitter embossing powder on them. I stamped the lady faces and quotes and then used my heat gun. Within a few hours I had the ornaments ready to go.
These stamps are great for cards, journaling and from the photos below, ornaments! So just a fun idea if you have an office holiday swap coming up maybe you work with some fabulous ladies that can use a sassy ornament.
