I have been making my godson an ornament every year since the mid-1990's. I had originally intended to stop making him ornaments when he turned 21. However, he liked them so much, and I enjoyed making them so much, I continued for a few more years. The end of an era has finally come. It made this last ornament for him so fitting.
I have been interested in the Mayan civilization (and the Aztecs and the Incas) since I was a kid. I've been toying with the idea of a Mayan or Aztec ornament for a few years. Then I was truly inspired with the whole end-of-the-world calendar thing, and decided to make a Mayan and work a calendar into the ornament.

There you go - Mayan dude with his Haab' calendar. I'm glad we're all still around so I could show it off.
