Yuletide Crafting


It's the most wonderful time of the year! House explosion!

Now that gifts have been given I'm free to expose the chaos and fun of yuletide crafting.

In order they are: as-yet-not-ironed tweed aviator hat with bear ears. A tobacco pouch for papa's Christmas pipe tobacco (the boys tell me I've made quite a few of these over the years. What?) Christmas gnomes for Christmas stockings.

Hugh's gnome is also in league with the tooth fairy, since we've discovered that the traditional under-the-pillow method doesn't work. He left a message, carefully printed and adorably misspelled: Tooth Fairy where are you? My tooth has been under my pillow for weeks. I need some money.

(Aw shucks, tooth fairy, you're breaking my heart!)

So Hugh's gnome took the precious little tooth under his care, and Hugh has been well compensated for his patience.

  1. Your handwork is wonderful - those little gnomes are adorable. Our son, Isaac, decided to test and find out about the tooth fairy but not telling his dad or I he lost his tooth and then putting his tooth under the pillow - when night after night, the tooth fairy didn't show up...

  3. We said that there had been a storm and that the tooth fairy couldn't get through because of the weather. Of course, it was only two day, not weeks... :)

  4. By the way, your gifts are adorable. Most years I plan on handmade gifts and never get them done. This year I didn't even try. Maybe next year, when I've become proficient in time management (hahaha).
