Or, in our case, on the little tinsel tree.
These are fifteen polymer clay stocking ornaments. I was inspired by these fabric stockings to make a miniature version in clay. I’ve always thought of my patterned clay sheets like fabric anyway, so it was a pretty logical progression, in my mind.
Every year I make a pile of ornaments to attach to packages and give to everyone in our extended family. Last year I kind of took the easy way out, but hopefully I’ve made up for it a bit with these. I will probably need to make another batch of 10 or 15, if I’m going to let everybody have one. This is a good start, though, and if I never get around to doing more, this is still a quantity I can work with.
So, I think this is where I take my leave for a while. I’m finding myself distracted a lot, thinking about blog posts and such, when I should be thinking:
- What, besides this great owl ornament, should I be getting my aunt for Christmas?
- What should I serve at our Day After Christmas Party?
- Do I have time to make the four of us matching PJ bottoms again this year? (I’m thinking “no”).
Stuff like that. I don’t want to spend the next week with my mind in blogland – I want my mind to be at home, taking care of holiday things and enjoying the cr@p out of them, d@mnit! LOL!
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and all that jazz! I won’t wish you a Happy New Year because I will definitely be back here before then! (Heh. Knowing me, I’ll probably be back here before Christmas, even.)
