Three are done. One more needs finishing up-I did an epic fail on the face, and have drafted the artistic Kid to help, and the last is half done!
They're all different-well, one and five have the same base.
Getting there!

Two ornaments done, and a third got the base done today. I know what I'm doing for number four, five's still up in the air. It may be a variation on ornament one, still pondering. Getting there!

I finished one ornament! Heh, I thought it'd be a simple prototype, that I'd whip up a batch of, personalizing them somewhat...Yeah. More time consuming than I thought, and not perfect-but I will insist that wonkiness is part of it's charm. Smiley

Not sending any out until they're all done. Since it looks like most of them will be different, I want to match them up to partners as best I can.

Hey, did you you know if you take a standard ball ornament and turn it upside down, it looks like a hot air balloon? The metal rim that holds the loop for an ornament hook looks like the neck of the balloon-all it needs is a basket underneath. No, I'm not making these, just passing it on! I picked up a box to look at and grabbed it upside down, and was struck by the resemblance. Smiley I may go back for that box. It also hand long oval ones that reminded me of zeppelins. Glass, too fragile to work with and ship, but I may need them.

The vases? Use them together as a centerpiece. Fill them with the same flowers, or different. Or, can you use those small floating candles in any of them? Add white candles of various sizes to the arrangement-the water and clear glass should reflect nicely with the candles. You may not need to use flowers, or not many, if you do that.
Or, if you need to give someone a little present, buy some inexpensive flowers, put them in the vase, maybe tie a ribbon around it, and give them away like that. Put one in a window, with water and a plant-you can grow philodendron and ivy in water, probably other stuff, too.I used to have a vase with ivy on my dresser, and it grew up and around my mirror-I bobby pinned it around the frame. Smiley Years ago....

What do I do with various sizes of clear light bulbs that I don't need for anything I own?
The size of a standard incandescent for the largest, and couple half that size, and a few night light sized.

Ralph, when you find out where, let me know. I need to stock up on time to craft, too!  Grin heck, I'd pay extra shipping for that!

Pogo, I know what you mean. Real Life keeps eating all my time. Heck, this is supposedly my day off, and I have to go to work tonight, grrr. Wednesday is my buckle down and get serious day! I have one ornament half done....

Been slightly down because something always seems to take up my days off. Life got hectic suddenly. But today I covered a dollar store item with the first layer of paper and glue. It's amazing what a mood brightener having paint and glue on your hands is.  Smiley Hoping the prototype turns out well!
And I had a nice thrift store trip today. I found something nifty and unusual, if I can just brainstorm the best way to use it.
And I bought a block of polyclay, which I have hopes for. If the ideas in my head translate well...we'll see.
