Many years ago - many, my family persuaded this shy, nearly friendless teen to enter the Junior Miss Pageant. Since I was not particularly talented, I decided I would speak. And what I shared with that huge, invisible audience hiding in the darkened auditorium were words from Confuscious:

"It is better to light one small candle, than to curse the darkness."

Christmas in July: Old World Shaved Wood Ornaments Made Easy!

Festive Heart ornaments

Combining the little ready made shaved wood curls from Olsen's Shaved Wood Ornament Kits and shaved wood strips called "Spon or Bastelspan" sent to me by a friend in Norway has allowed me to make ornaments I was not able to make using only one or the other alone. And these hearts are some of my favorites!
