Creating keepsake ornaments

I'm sorry the original link didn't go to the page for how this works and the tag to use so I've added this link which will take you to the tag for the ornaments. Today, I learned that crafters all over the world are making homemade ornaments and leaving them in public places for others to find with a tag downloaded from the Creating keepsake ornaments blog. This is so much fun and a great way to share the spirit of giving. I made 3 drop offs to day. The first one I made at the news stand. The second at the station near the house, and the 3rd on the way to my DD's. Now , on the third on I did the drop and went in to buy a drink, and on my way out I seen a man had already pulled up to the pump and found the little snowman. He had the biggest smile, of course he didn't know it was from me, but it sure made me smile too. If you are interested in doing this here the link.


  1. Donna, what a great idea! Smiles are what makes the world go round.
    That was such a sweet thing to do.
    I have some crocheted mini wreaths that I could do this with. I will post pics of where I leave mine.

  2. It really was fun. I can wait to see pics of where you leave yours. I was hoping the gas attendant was thinking I was trying to steal gas, LOL. People are actually starting to post that they have found the ornaments.And seems like they are going to people who really needed to know that their are people in the world that do still care about others.

  3. What a great idea! I never thought to leave an ornament somewhere to brighten someones day. It was nice for you to at least see one person get your little surprise and have a smile on their face.

  4. Do you have the link to the tag to print? Thanks

  5. I hate being trapped in this darn house..if I could, I'd cover this little town with surprises!

    What a great idea!


Thank you for your thoughts
