Christmas Ornament Contest

I quilted a bunch today and am close to getting ready to bind, but I had to stop to finish my ornament. At work, we are having a Christmas Ornament decorating contest we've had about a week and a half and they are due tomorrow. You have to use supplies from the store. I had one sphere and one flat circle.

It is hard to see, but it says "Let it snow!" Written with paint pen and sharpie. It's easier to see in person. I sprayed the inside with hair spray and shook some white glitter in there. Then I modge-podged snowflakes, punched from silver, blue, and white paper. I used ribbon scraps. I like it! :) The next on has paper wedges cut and glued on and silver paint pen. Then I put some red reject ribbon inside. The edge says "May your dreams be filled with sugarplums" in silver paint pen, but I need to make it darker... Then for some remnant ribbon and a jingle bell! It's beginning to look a lot like christmas! Have you started getting ready?
