Handmade Christmas #WW #Linky

My husband has made me an ornament every Christmas since we've been together (the one Christmas before we got married, he made me a jewelry box).

The first one was a tree that is battery powered and lights up. 

The second was an angel carved from wood. 

The third was an ornament ball that plays 5+ different Christmas carols with synchronized lights--he programed the whole thing!

This year my ornament was bent and painted wire. Everyone kept asking "what else does it do?" because they are so used to fancy things...but I like the simplicity of this year's ornament. Every year can't be super fancy, but they are all made with love :-)
Yes, I had to point out that he did a cursive N rather than an M
I also took the time to sew my husband a pair of Christmas PJ boxers--which was the first time I had used a pattern. I'm really proud of them :-)
