...I want to take a moment to make a rememberence. Yesterday was a very sad day here in Seattle. The entire Puget Sound region is in mourning. A little over a week ago, 4 (yes, FOUR) police officers were shot and killed by a lone gunman as they began their shift at a coffee house in a city just south of Seattle. Yesterday the region said good bye to these officers in a processional and service that ended up lasting most of the day. Over 5000 vehicles and 20,000 fellow officers from around the country participated. This is the second shooting of this kind here is Seattle area since Halloween night. I ask that we all take a moment and give a thought to not only these officers and their families (9 children lost a parent!) but to all of the officers, firefighters and military who put their lives on the line for us every day. I personally say Thank You and God Bless!
The project I have for you today was going to be later in the week but I moved it to today. It seemed appropriate. Angels and Christmas have always gone together. Enjoy these special angels!
I have been making these angels for years as necklaces and earrings. Lately, I have added them to a couple of my mini's as a charm on a charm dangle. Here I have added to a Holiday tag. They are simple to make and appropriate for any time of year but especially at Christmas time.
To make a charm you need a head pin and the beads shown. String beads on the head pin and make a simple or wrapped loop and voila'!
