I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! This hat is one of my daughter's favorite Christmas gifts. Silly hats are all the rage right now. It's barely been off her head since Christmas morning. Normally it's not over her face but we try not to put her photo online :-) and anyway this does make quite a picture... If you don't recognize Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz then you should really catch an episode of Phineas and Ferb. It's one of the few cartoons I would watch even without children.
We are all pretty excited about our new ten gallon freshwater aquarium. If you look closely you might see our pinkish betta hiding on the left edge. There are also two little danios but I don't see them in the photo. We're told we can't add more fish until the water finishes cycling in 3-4 weeks. I had never heard of that but we are reading up and learning fast. Then there will be a ton of fishy requirements to consider. Those little suckers are picky about their environment and don't always get along. We want a happy, peaceful tank. Anyway, these three are fun to watch and we can't wait to get more.
_During the year I usually tuck away some jewelry that my kids really liked, pretend they are sold, and then give them at Christmas. I think they are catching on because they're getting good at dropping hints :-) So Lindsay got the first piece pictured below, and Michelle got the second one... I can't find a photo of the one Kathy got.
By the way, I'm really enjoying the books I won from Lark. Since I'm taking a (hopefully short) reluctant break from jewelry making, the books are keeping me on track. They are all above my laptop for inspiration. I'm expecting to start posting new pieces again in mid-January, though. Fingers crossed.
And of course here is my fav pic from the holidays, my new grandson Brendan's very first Christmas...
Best wishes to all, and have a very happy New Year!!
