December Calendar Doll and BJP


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! It's a busy time of year here as I'm sure where you are. My son is counting the days to Christmas and then his birthday. It's a happy time of year for children and I enjoy his enthusiasm so much. The kids in the area are wound up and ready! I would like to present my December Calendar doll, Santa. He's made with a few scupty objects. I made the face from a mold and my girlfriend Miss Patty made the star, circle and heart. If you think about it Santa has the biggest heart, he travels the world (circle) under the starts, so I thought it brought a little old world feel to him.







My December BJP is a tree with the ornaments exploding off it. I think it shows the enthusiasm of the season from many points of view. Those who love this season and those who just want to say Bahumbug. Your choice. I'm not going to tell you that I wanted the ornaments on the tree but couldn't do it, it just happened that they put themselves where they are and I'm doing a loose interpretation! :)


Thanks for all of you who have visited my blog and let such nice comments, I appreciate it and enjoy reading them. Enjoy your holidays, breathe and be kind to yourself. I'm trying to do this and remind myself of it often since I'm in the process of looking for a job. I retired last February for health reasons and it's time. I'm feeling stronger but you know if I had my druthers, I'd rather be beading! Less stress

Wonderful inspiration for Christmas and the colors are great. I love your Santa doll, since the 1980's I have been collecting Santa's and never a beaded one. Must take care of that in 2009.

I LOVE it that we can interpret your Dec piece as we wish... To me it looks like the tree wants to be simple, natural, uncomplicated... yet it still wants to have a star to shine a little light on the darkness of the season. Oooooh... Fun!

And more OOOOOOH! Your Santa doll is absolutely adorable... It's a classic. Long after you and yours and gone, it will be auctioned at some toity-toity place for a gazillion gold coins. Don't ya think?!

Merry Christmas, Heidi! xxxooo Robin
