12 Days of Christmas: Six Geese a-Laying {ornament!}

I am so excited to be participating in the 12 Days of Christmas series hosted by the adorable Nat & Holly at My Sister's Suitcase. Those gals are SO much fun...and so is this series!

12 Days of Christmas_200
Here's the scoop, every day, a different blogger is taking on a line from the song 12 Days of Christmas and making a coordinating ornament. I just love a good crafting challenge, don't you?! My day is day 6, when true love gave to me...(go ahead, sing along) 6 geese a-laying.

I decided to take some creative liberties and mix some peacock feathers in there too (and, yes, I do know that peacocks don't do much a-laying!).

Here's how it's done:

1) gather supplies: 6 clear glass ornaments, white feathers, peacock feathers (optional), pearls (mine are from a broken necklace), white glitter, tweezers, burlap and lace scraps

2) carefully drop 1/6th of your pearls into an ornament

3) sprinkle glitter through the opening (use the plastic tray to catch any stray glitter)

4) add one white feather and a peacock feather, if desired. Use tweezers to position the feathers.

5) replace the top of the ornament and tie on a small strip of lace of burlap

Feathers. Pearls. Glitter. Burlap. Lace. Yep, it's all there.

At January’s SIHH fair, they showed Replica watches UK their newest timepiece, a skeletonized version of the steampunk- inspired Androgyne model, known as Rolex Daytona the Origine, to journalists at the Beau Rivage Hotel.When asked whether acquiring a handbagreplica relatively unknown brand at such a volatile time in the Replica watches industry was a risky gamble, Mr. Guten was circumspect.“It’s never a good time or a bad time; it’s just a question of opportunity,” Replica handbags .

  13. چاپ افست یکی از دو روش قدیمی است که یک پلیت یا زینک دارد که متریال روی آن قرار گرفته و چاپ می شود. این عمل همراه با انتقال جوهر صورت می گیرد که ممکن است رنگ ها در چند مرحله روی کاغذ اجرا شود. در حالی که در چاپ دیجیتال خانه طراحان سام دستگاه جوهر را به طور مستقیم روی کاغذ یا پارچه می افشاند. معمولا کیفیت چاپ افست را بیشتر از چاپ دیجیتال می دانند، اما هزینه های اولیه زیادی دارد و اگر چاپ انبوه نباشد، هزینه بیشتری نسبت به قیمت چاپ دیجیتال سام دارد. بنابراین چاپ دیجیتال جایگزین بسیار مناسبی بوده و مزایای زیادی هم دارد.
