“You can’t buy Christmas: you have to make it.” Ashleigh Brilliant

Store displays can amuse and inspire, but each Christmas is a home-made treasure.  Here’s hoping that you are creating a happy one this year.

  1. Julia! I guess the intervening years have caused you to forget – that first one wasn’t Christmas, but was entitled “A Portrait of my Uncle”.

    • Eric, I just figured it would be more tactful not to mention that. It’s quite a good likeness, especially the eyes. 🙂

  2. Let’s MAKE Christmas!!!!!! I’m all for it!!!!

    • Carla, I’m already working on next year. I’m planning to have a Christmas Festival next year (from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day) to make up for the one that was lost in crisis this year. Also to celebrate Jeff’s 55th birthday. Everyone invited!

  3. OHHHH I can’t wait for the festival to begin!! I have some decorations that look very like these (except of course the portrait for Eric) and I use them every year. When I started teaching they came in very handy as sample projects too!!! Have a wonderful Christmas.

    • Thanks Amy! You can help me get ready for the Festival next year.We’ll have to get together for a cuppa sometime next week. Give our greetings to all your family, and tell the HM says “Happy Christmas!”
