I am, professionally, a technical writer.  I love Christmas and work all year on my themes for the many Christmas trees that I put up (from 4-17 each year).  I have been a ornament collector for many years. As such, I found that some things that I wanted for my own collection were difficult or expensive for me to purchase; so, I began a search for a means to make them myself.  I discovered some key elements and was able to set up a small "workshop" in my home.  This gives me the opportunity to create whenever the mood strikes me.
I began with wreaths and centerpieces, "curly" ornaments, and "picks" made with sequins and various beads. I expanded into beaded ornament covers in two sizes.  This last year I was fascinated with quilted ornaments and have added these to my list of items.  Each of these has been made by me in my workshop and is an expression of my creativity and love of the season.
