Picture a Day-Day 12

Last night was a bit busy. First I set to the task of turning all of our leftover invitations into ornaments (an idea I stole from here).

I did spice it up a bit first by rolling the paper into more of a scroll shape to highlight our names and colors in certain spots. Then we found the perfect autumn garland on sale to stuff into the bulb as well to give it a nice sparkle.

I'm thinking one for each set of parents and two for the tree. Though my thumb is really pissed at me after all the cutting and rolling (my poor thumb is the biggest victim when it comes to craft projects).

Finally we finished the night up watching some great nostalgia.
Now that I am much older I realize just how much of an homage Yakko is to Groucho. Not to mention I get so many more jokes now.

Anyone else a big Animaniacs fan (I also have a soft spot for Pink & the Brain)? Or just like to revisit those beloved cartoons from years past?

I love those ornaments... that's so cool... imagine having yearly ones where you can add things that happened that year and then the ornament would be a 2008 ornament and etc... and then later going back and readin the stuff!I love that!

PS. I'm a huge animaniacs fan too :)

Nice Ornaments!

We only have a 3 foot tree, so such a big ornament probably would look a bit weird. Cool idea, though! :)
