1996 Christmas ornaments
This year we celebrated two “firsts.” It was DD#1’s first year of playing the violin, and it was DD#2’s first year of playing volleyball.

I remember looking all over for a small violin to use as the basis of DD#1’s ornament. I was so relieved when I finally found this one only about a week before Christmas. It was a little bigger that I wanted, but I couldn’t afford to be too picky.

For the volleyball ornament, I found this small volleyball at one of the volleyball tournaments we went too, but it was just cheap ugly plastic. I ended up getting small piece of leather-like Ultrasuede so I could cut pieces to glue to the plastic ball, which made it much more realistic.
