One Powerful Hour /Christmas Ornaments (altered dominoes)




One Powerful Hour this week is Christmas Ornaments. It obviously took more than an hour for them all .. but individually it took an hour for the 2 tags. under an hour for the 7 swans and slightly over for the large domino.. the triple domino admittedly took quite a bit more than an hour!

I wont be making much for a while as My mum Died last night after a difficult time with cancer.
She was a gentle unassuming caring soul and her Family and friends are really going to miss her.
