I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Cruising through catalogs the other day and I saw almost this exact same ornament (the only difference was the color of the middle shell) for 25.00 but shipping and handling. Well, of course being crafty I said, "Dude, I can so make this!" and that's just what I did and I think I did it better!

My whole piece cost about 7.00. I am going to hang it to where the sun hits the crystal and I can have a rainbow at my house at all times.  Cheesy I might make some other with different shells for the back yard.

Here is the listing for the one in the catalog.

And here's mine.

Right? That's what I was thinking! Use different shells.

Thanks all!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
