It’s my fifth year making an ornament for my mother-in-law’s DIY ornament exchange. I love doing this with my new family. It’s so fun to think of and create different ornaments each year. They have all meant something special to me. This is why when I came up with the idea for this year’s, both my husband and I were surprised that I hadn’t thought of it previously!!
If you have been here for any length of time, you know that I am obsessed with all things Welsh: the language, the culture, the history, the mythology, everything. I studied abroad in Wales SEVEN years ago! My mother-in-law likes it when the ornament we create has a story behind it. My first year, I made an ornament based on my favorite Christmas song. My second year was my favorite Christmas story. My third year was my favorite Christmas prophecy scripture. My fourth year was my longing for Utah. So, when I was trying to come up with an idea for this year, and I thought of Wales, I was flabbergasted I hadn’t thought of it before.
