Christmas is coming
My longtime faithful readers know that every year I make personalized Christmas ornaments for my family and friends. Often the task of actually making the ornaments is less onerous than the task for figuring out what to make, because after 40+ years of this project, when every year has to be different from the ones before, it gets harder and harder to come up with new ideas. But this year I was fortunate to be browsing around in the craft store when I found some raw materials that suggested their own finished product.
This week I got down to business, found all the necessary tools and supplies -- and didn't even have to go to the store to buy anything new -- and started work.
Many little beads have escaped onto the floor, but one of these days I'll send Isaac down with a flashlight and a little dish and let him retrieve as many as he can.
For several years I've also been making an ornament for one of my blog readers. If you would like to be in the running this year, just leave a comment on the blog between now and Friday midnight.
