Christmas Ornament Using Conie Fong Christmas Nutcracker Soldier

 Hello friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It is cooler here in Southern CA; but the worst part is the Santa Anna Winds.  It sounds like a hurricane out there.  We have a gigantic pine tree that the city is supposed to trim but two have fallen on our street, destroying property, etc.  They don't even bother coming out to clean it up; or clear the street that is completely blocked when that happens.  The neighbors have had to do it.  I worry about it falling on our house.  If it does, it would land on me upstairs in the crafty room.

I have been creating Christmas ornaments for my great grandkids.  This is another one using Conie Fong Christmas Nutcracker Ensemble Bundle - The Soldier.  They are so cute.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

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!!
