Mr. Man is home with me today. He started feeling a little under the weather on Friday and, despite being a champ and helping to pick out and decorate the tree on Saturday, can't seem to shake this fever and stuffy head he has. No fun. We did get to do a few holiday crafts.

Here's our paper chain...

These are 2 of my favorite decorations. The one on the left is a ceramic ornament made by our friend Amy. She used Mexican wedding lace to give it texture, which I love. Henry and I made the one on the right by dipping a long strand of yarn in a glue solution, wrapping it around a small balloon and sprinkling it with silver glitter. We let it dry over night, popped the balloon and viola!

All done.

I also finished Shelley's black dog customs.

Woof Woof!

Also, Sage Skully Lounge Sets in size 4/5 are here! And Knit Pirate and Quilt Pirate Coaster Sets are also in stock and would make fabulous stocking stuffers for the crafty folks in your life!

I love your yarn ornament! I'm totally copycatting that one. ;) I think I have a little yarn around for the great idea!
Feel better soon Mr. Man!

Which yarn do you use, if I may ask?

Best regards,

Awww, sorry to hear Henry is under the weather- unfortunately, 'tis the season for that, too. But your tree looks fabulous, and I love the ornaments!
