  • SSW Ornaments Revealed

    Hi folks, Hope everyone is having a terrific Christmas. Mine was fabulous, and this was the hit of the night.
    My family and friends loved the ornaments I received and also the way I decided to display them. I really wanted a special place for my ornaments, I didn't want them getting lost on the Christmas tree.

    I hope nobody in the ornament swap objects to me posting this pic, but I wanted everyone on the message board, especially those who didn't participate, to see what they missed.
    So thanks very much to all who participated, the ornaments are all very beautiful. I know there's a couple more to come and I will add them to my wreath as they arrive.
    Again Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to all
    Marsha

    Marsha -- what a neat idea !!! I know the ornaments I recieved were a hit at my house yesterday ..My Mom told me to bring them out and show them -- then they made me pass each one around so everyone could get a good look-I think you have a wonderful idea and a beautiful wreath also

        Nice way to display them Marsha. I put all mine around the tree and I show everyone who comes here. It interesting to see a pattern that someone else used that I WAS going to use until I decided to design one - amazing when one thinks of how many patterns there are around!

          Thanks Marsha for posting a pic. I will make sure I gather up mine and try to get a photo before they get packed away, as we all didnt get the same ones. I look forward to next years swap! Dale

              Marsha,

              I'm okay with you posting all the ornaments one at a time so we could get a good look at them. I know I wasn't in the big pool of ornament exchange... and would like to see other creations.

                    Great idea Marsha. They

                    I've got a small pine tree (artificial) that I'm going to set in the living room and hang all of mine on once I get the big tree down.

                    I have a Moose and Polar Bear footrest that I can put underneath the tree. The hubby will think I'm nuts, actually more nuts, but what the heck.

                    I'm already planning my pattern for next year.

                      Those ornaments look great displayed like that, Marsha. I'd love to see some of the others that people have received.

                      I'll defintely join in next year if people are going to do this again ..

                        Thanks All, for the great comments. I've decided I'll leave my wreath up until I think of another way to display them all year, I just can't imagine putting them away.

                        Grizz: I like the idea of posting each ornament separately, perhaps with the name of each maker, that's alot of pics though.

                        Dusty Buffalo: who cares what hubby thinks, I think it's a great idea.

                        I hope the other swappers will post pics of their ornaments, I too would like to see the different ones.

                        Last but not least, the swap was a great success. I enjoyed doing it and you're all VERY WELCOME. I can't wait for next year, I'm sure we'll need to start cutting a lot earlier, cause I anticipate a lot more participants.

                          Is this a scrolled footrest, Kelly?

                            No, Ian. They're actually stuffed animals with hard backs. I got the Moose a few years ago and this year they offered the Polar Bear. The hubby collects Moose and I collect Polar Bears so they go together perfectly. And since we have both all over the living room they fit nicely.

                              Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                              I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                              For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                              The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                              Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                              Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                              So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                              I like the fact...

                              Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
