You may remember that last year I began a tradition of making a wool bird Christmas ornament for Sadie.
Here is last year's bird.
I finally started this year's ornament! These two pieces will be stitched together and stuffed. I still need to do the eyes and some embellishment details, but I'm making progress!
And now for a couple of small gift ideas. I discovered this candle Friday at Christmas at the Crossroads, the yearly arts and crafts show at Lake Martin. The candle is unique because it doubles as a moisturizing cream. If you zoom in on the instructions, it says to dip a finger in the candle as it melts and rub it on your hands (or feet or elbows or anywhere!). There are several fragrances available, but my favorite was Buttnaked.
These are made by a sweet woman in Birmingham, AL. She developed this product because she has eczema. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. I love they way the 'cream' makes my skin feel and smell! I'll be ordering more!
And here's another gift idea. I love these collectible gold-plated Candy Cane ornaments by Wallace. Each year has a different design. I buy three every year - one for me, and one for each of my daughters.
Here's one of the designs. I love them and I think my girls like them, too. I have purchased them at Dillards, but can now I can get them on Amazon. Find them HERE.
I think either the candle or the ornament would make great small gifts for teachers, friends, hostess gifts, or for almost anyone.
Our Thanksgiving was wonderful! The food was good, the company was even better. We're in the home stretch for Christmas. We put up our Christmas tree and all the other decorations over the weekend. I have even started wrapping presents! I typically wait until the last minute to wrap, so this is a big deal for me!
I still have two more presents to make - maybe later this week I'll get to them.
Continue to stay safe!
