As we decorated our Christmas tree, I was over whelmed with memories. I am sure most people are but I find my best source of memories aren't the expensive collector's ornaments. For me it is the homemade ornaments my kids and my friends have made. One of my closest friends is no longer with us but she is with me every year as we decorate the tree. She always had some kind of wonderful homemade ornament to mark our friendship at Christmas time. Many of the ornaments have been featured in the free Christmas Tree Ornament Instructions.
One of my favorites is one she made when Polar Fleece was first introduced. She made me the RenuzitŪ Projects -- QUICK SANTA CLAUS using a green fleece which made it more like an old time St. Nicholas than Santa Clause. Any way you look at it, it's a wonderful table decoration no matter where I set it out... and it holds wonderful memories for me.
RenuzitŪ has an entire line of free patterns for decorating their air freshener. Many of these covers would make a great small gift for someone you want to know that you are thinking of them. I love the Americana Bear featured on the RenuzitŪ Crafts Project Index.
