Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and Hoping Everyone Enjoys the Magic of this Season!

As you can see, I've had a few days off and I've had fun playing with all my Christmas minis.  

Here is one of my favorite Christmas dolls: a mom coming home with some Christmas shopping (outside the Malibu doll house).

This mom (at Waterside Way) is taking a nap, after having done quite a bit of shopping.  

She managed to get some decorations up  (the children added their drawings):

But she still has to write her Christmas cards (although she did bake some gingerbread cookies with her children - one has to pick priorities after all!):

And she still has to finish wrapping all the presents (before her husband gets back with the kids):

But look, an elf has come to help here write Christmas cards (probably tempted in part by the yummy gingerbread cookies) :

And another elf is helping to wrap presents: 

So it should be a wonderful Christmas as always!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all my blog friends!  

I look forward to another year of sharing and learning from you!

Christmas Wreaths

Before finding the idea for the little santas, I also thought about making wreaths as gifts based on the Mitchy Moo Miniatures tutorial.  The one above is with blue glitter glue (because I happened to have that) and the one below is with silver glitter glue.  

They were a lot of fun to make too.  I made about six.  I used black floral tape because that is what the florist shop had, but brown floral tape would have been much better. 

And then Mitchy Moo Miniatures sent me one as a gift - so beautiful with the tiniest little stars!  Thank you!

Little Santas

I  was looking for somehting that I could make for the 22 members of my mini club as a gift.

I tried making the Santa Claus out of red pipe cleaners from tutorial article in the Dolls House Magazine, but I realized that would take me too long, although I did like them:

And then I saw a post from Kikodit on instagram on how to make little santas using a red bead, pale wood bead, red felt and cotton for the beard:  Hurray!  Something I could make quickly for 22 people.  And here they are:

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
