I absolutely agree with homemade, I was just hoping that homemade by others might be acceptable also. Definitely would not want mass-produced, store-bought type of ornaments allowed but there are some lovely items made by the ladies of our church every year and by local artisans at the holiday craft fairs. I never seem to be happy with things that I make and I was thinking that it might also be an option for people who don't have time to make their own ornaments.

I think that would be fine if someone wanted to spend the money to purchase something like that from a craft fair or something. I wouldn't want something mass-produced from a chain store but something unique, even if not personally made from one of our members due to time constraints, would be fine with me. Becky did that one year when she was at Pigeon Forge.

I don't know! I got an external hard drive and then this sim card thingy. But this stupid dropbox thing was on my computer somehow and they say it is deleted but won't let me download pictures. Will take it to work next week maybe to a lady who knows computers.
