Combining the little ready made shaved wood curls from Olsen's Shaved Wood Ornament Kits and shaved wood strips called "Spon or Bastelspan" sent to me by a friend in Norway has allowed me to make ornaments I was not able to make using only one or the other alone. And these hearts are some of my favorites!

Christmas in July is almost here! And this year - I will be celebrating the whole month! Lots of tutorials for sweet ornaments and pretty trees. A most excellent hexie blog hop sponsored by Craftypod. And time to return to cookies! We will start the six month Winter Holiday Cookie series off this year with beautiful waffle cookies from Norway, Italy, the Netherlands and more!

Diane and I finally were able to schedule a play date so we could indulge in some crafty experimentation with the lovely Chirimen Japanese crepe fabric Arielle sent to me before she left Okinawa last fall.
Kanzashi ornaments seemed a perfect way to use this gorgeous, fluid, drapey rayon crepe material.

Today, December 16th is the beginning of the 9 days of Las Posadas - a centuries old tradition in Mexico and in many towns and villages in New Mexico in which the search for "a room in the inn" is re-enacted every night until Christmas. Children and their parents wander through their neighborhood visiting home after home until finally they are welcomed in for delicious holiday treats and singing and sometimes breaking of a pinata.
