The first hint...

As a rule, I don't do any Christmas decorating around the house until the tree goes up on December 1st. This year however, a little tiny hint has appeared early. Can you spot him?

Isn't he the cutest little thing?! As we are hosting the family for Christmas this year, I was hoping to make some place card holders like Tara Dennis made on BH&G a few weeks ago (on p64 of the magazine) from resin birds. I couldn't find any like hers, but did find this little guy. He was a bit garish, so needed a touch up with some craft acrylic (sorry, didn't think to take a 'before'). Then he looked so sweet I couldn't bear to put him in the decoration box, so here he sits. I am resisiting adding anything else until December...::struggle::..a month is not enough! The actual Christmas shopping is done, just waiting for a few things to arrive in the post, but the Christmas crafting is another matter. Drat this 'going to work' business. Can't I just sit and craft until everything is made?? Better get a wriggle on... P.S. "Christmas gift suggestions:

To your enemy, forgiveness.

To an opponent, tolerance.

To a friend, your heart.

To a customer, service.

To all, charity.

To every child, a good example.

To yourself, respect."
