An Unexpected Gift

When I decided to take part of the Secret Santa exchange with the Etsy Alberta Team, I set no boundaries and laid no hints as to what I might like to receive. I enjoy a surprise. When I saw the envelope was from Glass Circus, a shop I'm quite familiar with, I was very excited. Not without the haste of a child on Christmas morning, I opened the package, and found myself delighted with the contents. Three fused glass ornaments quickly found their way to my tree, but I will not be packing them away with the decorations after the holidays. I think they would make great dangles for a bookmark. The green one would look great on one of my purses, that just happens to need a larger zipper pull to grip. They would make really wonderful gift tag adornments for someone special, but I'm afraid I like them a bit too much to be giving them away so soon. Thank-you so much for the lovely gift Martina, and as always, you do wonderful work.

  1. I'm so glad you like them Andrea! And such great ideas for other uses for them. Now you have me thinking about making zipper pulls and bookmarks!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and all the best to you in the New Year.

  2. I like that you are thinking about re-using them for everyday situations. That's one of my peeves about ornaments...storing them away for next year!

  3. What a great gift! They'd also be pretty hanging in a window year-round!

    I love doing secret Santa's with fellow crafters and am looking forward to the OhCanada team exchange! :)
