I just love this li’l guy!  I haven’t made a holiday ornament in a loooooooong time, so it was *really* fun to make this for an ornament challenge among all the A Muse/Elzybells chick-lettes, "just for the halibut"! *grin*

I also love making ornaments out of these watchmaker tins!  Golly are these things ever useful!  I need to get more–I have an idea brewing in my head for something else that I could use them for–that would ORGANIZE some of the CHAOS known as:  The Royal VAULT (a.k.a. studio)!  *chortle*

BTW, thank you for the sweet comments that indicate a willingness to overlook the imperfections of the last creation I shared–you guys are so very nice!    I fuzzed. Quite warmly!  *chinkle*  Thank you.

I’m looking forward to this weekend; I’ve made a holiday shopping date with my daughter.  We haven’t spent much time together lately, just mother and daughter, talking . . .  being "girly", and whatnot . . . I can’t wait to take in the sights and sounds, hustle and bustle of the season, with her . . . we’ll lunch at Panera, of course, shopping bags all around us, sipping mochas out of those ginormous ceramic cups they have . . . if we’re lucky, there might be a vacant booth near the fire . . . doesn’t that sound lovely?  *happy*
