Painted ornaments.

These ornaments are a fun a simple project that I did a few years ago. I bought some clear glass ball ornaments, poured in some acrylic paint, swirled it around, turned them upside down to dry for several days, and... voila! Pretty ornaments!

Today is N.'s birthday party day. This year he said to me, "Mommy, I really like having family birthday parties, but this year could I please have one with kids?" My boy is growing up! Today is a kid party day at a place with lots of room to run around and jump on things. He should be good and tired by tonight!

As far as my recovery goes, I'm doing pretty well. I've had some more problems with the infection, but it's being treated and I'm feeling better each day.

Have a nice weekend.

Those ornaments are very pretty. Sounds easy to make too! I remember when I specifically asked for a b-day party with kids. So much fun!

Wow! Those ornaments look more complicated than a little acrylic swirling. They're very pretty! I'll have to try this--next year, though. I'm already over the whole "decorating for Christmas" thing.

Very pretty. I think Nick would enjoy a project like that.

Those are so cool! Now if we could figure out a craft to do with the old ones who are losing their paint!
