Default 1st BC post - ceramic ornaments

This is my first post for the Board Challenge (BC). I just finished the christmas ornaments I painted for my grandkids, and wanted to show them off. I found the greenware at one of the craft bazaars I attended last December. I painted them and made the hangers. First, all four:

And individually:

For the past seven years I have gotten an ornament for each of the grandkids and ourselves. This year I personalized them a little more. Each face is reminiscent of its owner. The plan is to give each grand all of their ornaments when they are grown and have their own trees to provide them a little history of their lives as each ornament has their name and the year on it.

Those are very cute! Every time they open a box of ornaments, when they have their own tree, they'll think of you.

I do almost the same with my grandkids, I get them a snow globe each year.

My Grandmother did this for us... she had a theme for each one of us, and made or found an ornament with that theme each year... mine was cats- I am not particularly fond of cats but I have many of them on my tree each year LOL! I am starting this with my own children though- picking something that matches their current interests so it will be memory thing per year as well.

It is a very special and wonderful thing, and your new additions are very nice.
