Christmas Ornament Using Conie Fong Christmas Nutcracker King

Hello friends!   How are you?  It has cooled down here in Southern CA and we have had rain a few times this week.  

It has been a rough week for me.  I just haven't felt good.  My body has been hurting and I haven't felt like doing much of anything this week.  I did finally finish my 3 Christmas ornaments I was working on. This is the first of 3 Conie Fong Christmas Nutcracker Ensemble Bundle; which is new to her shop.  This is the Nutcracker King.  This is a set of 4 images, one with all 3 and each one alone.

I have not paid much attention to Nutcrackers until Lisa (DT) asked Conie to create them.  Now I see nutcrackers everywhere and I even bought a nutcracker sweatshirt.  Lol!  They were so much fun to color and play with.  I think my great grandkids will love them.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
