December 2015 - Collection of Gifts
Darren's Mermaid - Sue Hillis Designs:
I took the glass out as it pressed up against the charm & I didn't want it to crack the glass.
MIL's St. Nick & Owl is now framed in this rustic looking navy frame I purchased at Michaels. Hubby suggested a frame with a kick out arm so that his mom could display it, but put it away after the season & not need to search for a sliver of wall space on her already heavy walls.
I gave Guy his Fleece on Earth..... I couldn't really read his reaction. It was either amused or confused. I'm sure once he has the weekend to mull it over he may get the joke aspect of it.
Floyd thanked me for his ornament & declared it would go on his fridge with the rest of the ones I have given him.
I relocated my Aunt Coleen's Grumpy Cat from last year & did up her new one for this year. I mailed them both off to Florida.
In the end, while I wasn't originally impressed, I think this one was my favorite ornaments for turn out this year as far as finishing technique went.
Then there was the Scotty Dog, for Warren. He picked up his card from the mail & just grumbled a Thank You as he shuffled out the door. I'm sure he sat inside his truck & opened it there in privacy. *roll eyes* Silly farmers.
[ turns out he wasn't as thrilled with the dog as I thought and hasn't spoken to me since]
Ronnie's rifle: he's going to do up a frame for it himself.
Barry's Christmas cutie he kept asking Mrs Claus for 😉
