I can finally post about the ornaments I made for our nephews this year. They are in their 20’s and we never know what to get them. They are getting their own places so I think this was the first year they had gifts of things they actually needed, bakeware, irons, sheets and things like that. Welcome to the time of life when gifts are more needs than fun!
I am going to digress for a moment on how one day my photography skills will improve…in reality I don’t have time to hone those skills so it’s low on my priority list. Honestly this time I was just lucky I got a picture. I didn’t have time to figure out placement or lighting as I was in a rush to get them done and wrapped. So, once again readers I’m sorry for the poor quality in pictures!

This is what NOT to do. Well, maybe you want this look, but it was not my intent. I rolled the picture so the picture side was out and it was backwards for what I had in mind.
