    that is very pretty anastasia and hamburger fingers? yikes poor kid. Cured me of wishing to make one for sure!
    just send me one surely you will grow calluses over time right?

    marybeth look of vintage elf period not the candy. The face is available for sure. We called that little guy Richard lol and you can find the elf reproductions really cheap I know as I bought one and sent it to my sis. He was her favorite doll in the doll house. I had a Madame Alexander doll and she had Richard. He was the hubby and she would take him and say RICHARD YOU ARe A BAD BAD HUSBAND and then whack him on the floor many times. Poor richard. She maybe had some emotional issues huh? lol.. she loves her elf man. Fabric legs right with knots in them for knees etc and skinny arms and filled body, plastic/rubber face.. you can find him on ebay .. got me wanting a few myself now..

    *crossing fingers for the bling*.. I had these cute little asian take out style boxes, with christmas scenes on them that I was going to stuff my ornaments into... but they don't fit.. *pout* so now I have to find another suitable container. *sigh*

    Cute ornie Anastasia, but what about my pink one???? LOL I so remember those hamburger fingers. The ones I made were from kits and they had long pins that I threaded beads on. I made a half dozen one year and never again.

    Pink.. crap.. and green.. dangit.. I'm gonna have to order more supplies hehehe. you get so many things for so few dollars.. so I ordered what I liked so I can use them up on things I wouldn't mind keeping around. But then I decided, well.. shoot... I should make these as presents.. but that means I need more colors. Dangit.. well.. I can make a pink one of the one I have finished.. will that work? hehehe.

    My kids and I made those from kits years ago. We used a pencil eraser to push the pins in; saves on the fingers.

    Dang... I can't show mine because my ornament pal knows who she is! That would ruin the fun. Oh well, maybe she will show it when she gets it.

    wow you used eraser heads to push them in what a great idea. Saving the fingers is a very good thing. So my ornament is not going to fit in a take out box? hows about a priority mail box? I think it could zoom over here really fast and that would not be an issue for me. I am thinking red hows about a red one? or maybe a gold one? or maybe a.. oh maybe that one! yeah thats the ticket. Mine will be finished tomorrow. I am not as prolific as everyone else. Two for each of my pals I am sorry. I will try to make them two that are worth it.

    Those stockings are cute. I am working on my ornaments today. This has turned out to be very labor intensive. I would have made something a little easier, but I realized that I gave all my crafting supplies to DGDs Girl Scout Troop. I had oodles of beads, sequins, wooden shapes, all sorts of stuff. Then they wanted donations for fund raising, so I gave them everything I thought I would never use again. How did I know I was going to join an ornament swap????
