Those are precious, did you put anything along the edge of the big shells or were they just naturally lined like that?

I went around the edges with a gold paint pen since when they were glued together, the "body" sort of blended into the "wings".  Also, I like how it coordinates with the halo and the ribbon!

Thank you so much!  They were really easy to do, too (though I advise against burning yourself with hot glue.  It did nothing to add to the angels! Wink )

Those look great!  I may have to make some for myself!  Smiley

This year, I've got more presents than usual to get as I think we're heading up to my grandmother's for Christmas (and thus have to give to everybody!)  This is the first year I'm trying to make a majority of the presents, too.

Mom - angel ornament*, beer bread mix, apron, stocking, heifer donation, recipes box w/recipes, coupon organizer w/ coupons

Gram - angel ornament*, purse organizer, eyeglass case, winter placemats, coupon organizer w/coupons

Gramp - heifer donation, gift card, tie?

Various friends - beer bread mix, apron

Friend #1 - purse/bag, apron

Friend #2 (pregnant with her first baby) - diaper bag/purse?

Uncle (lives in New England, doesn't lack for much, I'm unsure of what to do for him, really) - tie? (from a tute on here, I think)

Uncle's Wife - angel ornament*, purse

Friend's baby girl (1 year on Christmas!)- soft ABC book (I've got the list of A is for ... and just need to get the supplies), quilted ball

Cousin's two year old son - crayon roll w/ tote bag and coloring book, quilted ball

Cousin/Husband - necklace (being made by a friend), tie, angel ornament*

Cousin/Fiance (fiance is a police officer in FL ... no idea if he could really use a tie or not, they're getting married a year from now) - necklace (being made by a friend), tie, angel ornament*

Prairie (mom's dog) - homemade dog biscuits, leash?

Cousin/Girlfriend (just moved in together)- angel ornament*, tie, necklace (being made by a friend)

Uncle #2 - tie

Younger girl cousins - necklaces (being made by a friend)

The * show what I've finished.  Suggestions for the men on my list are greatly appreciated.  Most are Red Sox fans and work in offices, except my Gramp (who's retired) and my cousin's fiance (the cop).  Thoughts?

80sgirl - I've asked my mom for the recipe and will send it on when she gives it to me!

Mom Works in a Day Care (which she is always doing crafts for them). Likes to relax on the couch and watch movies. Already has a cozy blanket (last year's Christmas present from Dad) and a magic bag. Doesn't really like ornaments. Trying to watch her weight.

80sgirl - my mom is also trying to watch her weight, so I got a cheap ($1) recipe box from Michaels and am collecting different healthy recipes from friends/family/etc and writing them out.  I'm including some "treat" recipes too because we all deserves treats now and then.  I plan on decorating the box itself with decoupage or something similar.  Also, for your boyfriend, maybe peanut butter cups?  I've got a recipe around here somewhere that I can try to dig up, if you're interested.

Hello!  I'm a new member, so if I'm doing this wrong, just poke me and I'll fix it. Smiley  I also hope that this idea hasn't been posted ad nauseum (sorry, if it has!)

Anyway, last January, my extended family took a trip to the beach and I collected seashells while I was there.  Inspiration struck while I was looking through them a few days ago and I came up with seashell angel ornaments.  Not only are they darling (in my not-so-humble opinion!) but they're a lasting reminder of a fabulous vacation with family!



So, outside opinions?  Do they look like angels or is it so late I no longer have accurate perception?  Smiley
