Since I didn’t really want to post Christmas things before Christmas (can’t ruin any surprises now can we?)  I thought I’d show you the little elving that did happen.

Earrings:  I used the Martha Stewart ideas… there is another pair but I didn’t send them out yet, so no picture.

My forest:  This forest was supposed to become part of this cake decoration, but it is one of the things that got scaled back big time.  Instead, the forest made itself at home between my beloved german Christmas decorations on the mantel, and I loved it so much, that cake may not happen this year either.  If it does, there may have to be even more trees.

Oh, and I had every intention of making fabric gift bags this year, but since I didn’t, Jack Jr. had plenty of art to share.

We’ll be better next year…  maybe.
