I also tend to gravitate toward those that are Christ Followers. The same was true when I would buy books. I read the acknowledgement to see what kind of person they were.
One of my favorite people to "follow" lately, is Mindy Lacefield. Her style is so far from mine, that it intrigues me. A fb friend has been taking her 24 faces on-line workshop, and I find myself turning a bit green for not having money and being able to take classes, BUT then, I again, am amazed at the generosity of so many artist who freely give of their time to share. Be sure to let people know how you appreciate them when they share.
Mindy shared how she created an ornament the other day on her blog click here to go there.
I wanted to try it, so eventually, on a trip to the kitchen, I looked to see if I had any coffee filters.
NOW, this is where we laugh. I DID find some, and they were greatly discolored. I tried to figure how long they had been in the cabinet, and I KNOW that coffee has not been made in this house for 14 years, and since they last so long, they probably had been there for about 6 or more years, since we only made coffee on Christmas morning, and maybe 2 more times...so, my question is: Does this make my ornament VINTAGE? ROFL
I also, have had these ornaments for about 6 years too! So I gathered them with the naturally stained coffee filters...
