Making Christmas  
This year, we'd decided we were going to get our first full sized Christmas tree. And not only that! We were going to get a REAL tree! We picked one out and set it up, and I've entered what Chris is calling a period of TREE SQUEE.

Because we've got a full sized tree for the first time, I've felt the desire to fill it up and weigh it down with ornaments. An overloaded tree is a happy tree I've always said. But then I got a wild hair and decided I wanted to make my own ornaments that reflect our year and stuff that we like and are important to us. Here are the first six, made of polymer clay and painted.



I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of food on this tree.

Doooood. You're a cellist! You should know that's the F clef!

Hahaha, oops! To be fair to myself, I was working on a viola piece before I posted that, C clef was stuck on my mind.

You're playing viola too now?

I'll be adding C and G clefs to the tree as I learned to read them this year too.

Oh no, I meant working on as in writing.

Man, those are awesome! How real does that biscuit look!? I love that you have tomatoes AND an office chair on your Christmas tree. :) This is a great idea!

I'll admit I'm particularly proud of that biscuit. I threw all my painting skill into that puppy.

Oh, and that's no office chair. That's the iconic Eames Lounge Chair and is on there for my hubs. He's also requesting a Christmas zombie and Christmas dinosaur.

I love the ornaments! Especially the biscuit, which looks good enough to eat. Mmmm....
