A Handmade Christmas

2014 was an eventful year for my family. My brother and fiance bought a house, my parents sold our house of 26 years and I started grad school. So in the spirit of giving, and using my creative skills and working on a budget, I made ornaments for all.
I bought acrylic ornaments on amazon, used the acrylic paint I already have, and bought sealer from ACE Hardware.
I printed a small picture of the houses to make sure the sizing and outline was proportional to the actual houses.
These ornaments were a hit Christmas morning. As I was painting them, I even had to paint one for myself.
 This is the house I grew up in. Purple door, flag, porch swing and shrubs all included.

This is the house my brother and fiance accurate as possible. Light blue porch, white picket fence, lattice, and brick columns.
And this is the logo of the graduate program I am enrolled in at the USF Muma College of Business. "USF Sport and Entertainment Business MBA Program"

All ornaments are  hand-painted with love and TINY brushes haha.
