A gingerbread house decorated by the boys, with their cousin and grandma (secret ingredient: use a hot glue gun to hold all the main pieces together. It saves a lot of headache and time. Besides, nobody really eats these, do they?). Candles for grandparents with Stockmar Decorating Wax in holiday colors. A wool felt tissue holder for a friend, based on a design in Martha Stewert Kids, Fall 2005, but made from a bigger 7" x 7" square to accomodate the real dimensions of a mini-kleenex packet. Snow covered Mountain Ash outside the local coffee roasting company. The wreath on our mailbox post out by the road was lush and full, until we caught a deer nibbling its tender branch tips one day. Now see how gimpy it's gotten. Our Christmas tree each year is a branch of an Aspen tree set in a bucket of rocks and with a blue linen moon at the top. Uh, yeah. In a town that calls itself the Christmas Tree Capital of the World.
