Ornament Season

It's November.  That's when I start gearing up for my home-made Christmas gifts.  There's a flurry of activity near the end of the month:  making almond butter crunch, baking cookies, herding guinea pigs for the annual holiday card photo.  I started making ornaments this week.

I always intend to make them in the summer, when the house is warm and the Sculpey is probably easier to work with.  I was all set to get a jump start this summer, when I was stuck on the couch doing nothing else.  But did that happen?  No.  However, I did get some ideas of what I wanted to make, which is usually my biggest hurdle.

I'm excited about the few I plan to make this year.  It's too bad I can't post photos of the completed ornaments until after I've gifted them, on the off chance they read my blog.  However, I'll post a quick preview of part of my first ornament probably won't hurt.

I had to re-do the go-cart frame at least four times because it was way too big and the tires were too small.  I have a sneaking suspicion it's still too large.  We'll see once I get make the occupant for the go-cart.

  1. Can't wait to see the finished project. Still can't believe these come out of your head!


I enjoy reading your comments and I strive to reply by email (if you're not set to no-reply).
