2019 VCU Ormanents

For those who may not know,
my oldest daughter, Doodlebug, has Down Syndrome.
She's 33 years old and LOVES, LOVES, LOVES VCU basketball.
(VCU is our local college team. My husband and younger daughter are grads.)
Doodlebug has gotten to know the basketball coaches and staff over the years
and each year she and I make ornaments for them.
It's a challenge to find ornaments that she can make, or at least
help me make. We've been doing this for 10 years, so there is quite a collection!

This years ornaments were so much fun to make!
It went together quickly and turned out so cute.

I saw the idea on Pinterest and knew they would be cute
in black and gold.


My daughter had a blast making them and can't wait to hand them out
to everyone who receives one.


People have told her they wait for their new ornament every year.
In fact, a staff member, who is a good friend,
moved this past year and asked if he could still get an ornament.

Merry Christmas!

These cute Santa ornaments have indeed put a smile in my day. How fun they are. Your daughter (and you) has done a brilliant job in transforming these paintbrushes into fun festive ornaments.

What a sweet tradition! I love this year's ornament. May have to make one of my own.

What a super sweet thing to do each year...and I'm so glad she enjoys making them. Do you save one each year...it would be nice to see a collection from the last 10 years. Please wish her a very Merry Christmas from me along with a hug, please! And while you're giving her a hug---ask that she give one back to you from me. :)

Now that I've read entire 2019, I've decided you're definitely a bad influence! Since I now want to make every single quilt, ornament, bucilla kit and candy bag you've shown here! You do such lovely work! And your spirit of giving is so uplifting!

You and your daughter make a great team! And do great things together!

Happy holidays!
