Welcome to Ornament Thursday

You may recall that I participated in a group project called Ornament Thursday back in December. At that time, the goal was to create original Christmas ornaments each Thursday before the holiday. Well, Ornament Thursday is back. For 2008, the OT group will be posting monthly projects (not necessarily ornaments, outside of December, but certainly all of the projects will be ornamental, if you will) with the traditional weekly ornament projects in December again. This month's theme is "Love Story". I actually posted my project yesterday, and you can reach it by scrolling down or by hitting the hot link below. To find out more about the Ornament Thursday group, please click on the link in my sidebar or go here. Without further ado, the fabulous projects:
