When you have four children, and lots of wonderful teachers, finding Christmas presents can be something of an ordeal, especially when you wait for the last minute. This year, I decided to try and make them all. To get an early headstart, I've been doing some collaging while waiting at ballet rehearsals I decided to do little mini-Christmas themed collages and solder the edges to make ornaments.
The collages have been lots of fun. The soldering was interesting. I hadn't soldered in months when I did the first two a couple of weeks ago. This is the front and back of the first one.
And then, this one.
Fortunately, after soldering about a dozen more, it seemed like the solder was less lumpy and I was back in the groove. I ended up with a nice little stack of vintage santa ornaments.
