Merry Christmas!


Here are the white branches from the December #squintbox:  I love these! I bought the December squintbox for the artwork (after it came out), so these were another happy surprise!

I also love my new kitty - I bought her on eBay from someone who was selling her collection.  (The thought of which made me a little sad.)  The kitty was made by Reve.  

I was very busy during December making little Christmas things and trying to complete some projects I've had on my list for ages.

I made some Gingerbread houses (because of the miniature gingerbread house competition by Ann Vanture), although none turned out quite as I envisioned they would.  

But I decided I should pull out all my dolls by Lana Hallas and show them making the Gingerbread houses.   I think the little blonde one looks a bit like me as a child (messy hair).  

Still I liked this one the best (so far): 

Here's the family in Waterside Way getting ready for Christmas:

And I finally made a front plexiglass cover out of my stash for my Santa's Naughty/Nice List Office Scene in a Wreath (so the furniture can stop falling out when inadvertently knocked).  

(Unfortunately, twice I tried to break the plexiglass after cutting it and it snapped wrong, so it's not perfect, but it does hold in the furniture.  Although of course, this year, I haven't seen it knocked.  Mysteries.).  

And then I made Christmas cookies with molds and frosting by Ruth Stewart (I actually started them last year, but never finished them):

And I also made cookies with molds from the Mouse Market: 

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and New Year filled with peace, creativity, happiness, love and laughter!
