I wanted to share with the group a couple of Christmas/Holiday crafts I made. The cat portrait tree ornament was done recently and given as a gift to my daughter and son in law as they have an orange tabby cat as a pet. It was painted with acrylics on a wood cutout of a cat that I had purchased at Michael’s. The size is 4″ x 4″. My first attempt at painting a cat– well at least the head.
The other two are wreaths I made a few years back. One is a Holiday wreath I made mostly of pine cones I picked up in different areas, nuts and craft cherries.
The other can be used as an all year round wreath to decorate the home.
Also, I would like to take the opportunity to wish the group Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a happy and healthy New year! [Ed note: was submitted before Xmas but we have a line-up!]
Take care, Olga Harhaj Czuma and Walter Czuma

I love the cat ornament, Olga. What a sweet gift, that will be treasured indeed.
Great job on that cat, Olga! I thought it was a cut-out from a photo. The wreaths are also very pretty.
