ornamentation: handmade joy
Today, I have two special joy-related things for you! First, an ornament! Surprise! Oh, wait. You were probably expecting that. Well, check out this easy ornament, then when you reach the end of the post, I have an actual surprise for you!
Here's what you need:
3 wooden nickels
Paint the wooden nickels to spell out "JOY". I started with a thin coat of gold paint, then added the letters and border.
Once they're dry, glue the letter discs onto the twill tape. Trim the bottom edge to have a little V shape.
At the top of the ornament, fold over the twill tape, and sew it down with a few running stitches. Use this to form the ornament hanger.
Display your JOY on the tree...as you listen to some Christmas music!
Here's the real surprise! My brother and I led music at church the other day, and we had so much fun working together, we decided to record the songs and share them!

This isn't anything fancy, just us singing and celebrating. We had fun making this little EP, and hope you enjoy listening. Sing Joy!
