I have recently joined Swap-Bot, which is an American site that puts you in touch with other people to swap postcards and similar memorabilia. So I bit the bullet and signed up for an exchange of handmade ornaments... Being artistic doesn't mean that you are necessarily crafty!
I had to create an ornament and since I don't knit or sew, I decided to use paper, glue and scissors to create something. I then added a little Christmas wish in the shape of a peacock-blue owl, but then decided to turn my drawing into an ornament itself. I am really happy with the drawing and not so hot about the actual ornament. Hopefully my Canadian partner will like them both. :-)
