for my kitchen tree

All those great retro kitchen ornaments got me thinking about all the cool illustrations in my Meet Mr. Product book and how perfect the food and restaurant ones would be for a kitchen tree. So I scanned them in, printed them out on cardstock, got out my glue stick and glitter glue and some cardboard and voila – fun & dorky handmade ornaments! just exactly the vibe I’m feeling this year.

    Lovely! How do you find the time to do all this? Most of my projects never leave the confines of my own head! (BTW: Beautiful photo of your boy yesterday.)

    How do you keep coming up with such great ideas! No, seriously! These are super-great! And you just helped amazon sell a book. My husband is in advertising and this will be wrapped for him under the tree. Looks like something he would enjoy.

    Awesome! I’m so jealous!!!
