Ornament Making Event

Hello everyone! Lora here to share a couple very special days we had here in my neck of the woods!
We had two wonderful ornament making events for children (and grown-ups!) here in Patrick County, Virginia sponsored by The Reynolds Homestead and our own wonderful Gina, owner of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. Through Gina's generosity and kindness, we were able to make over 150 ornament kits for kids to put together at two separate events...one was at the Apple Dumpling Festival and the second was held this past week end, A Victorian Open House at the old Reynolds Homestead.
We all had a blast.
Here are some pictures of what went on.

This little boy was so happy to be here. He worked very patiently through one kit after another, making presents for his family.
 The Victorian Open House was challenged by weather, but we still had a steady stream of kids and adults who enjoyed making the ornaments. Here is a great picture of the Victorian ladies decked in their finest, ready to do tours of the old house. Standing in front of the twelve foot Christmas tree at the learning center.
Lots of folks making ornaments.

The two most popular kits from both events were the Snowman and the Christmas tree.

Thank you, Gina for helping to make these events so special!

We made kits from versions of these laser cuts:
Winter Snowman Banner
Gingerbread Family Shape Set
Christmas Shape Set
ATC Shrine Box

Thank you for stopping by!
