...to be jolly. And I'm trying my best, even though I'm fighting another cold and I just learned that my hard drive crashed and is holding three years of my photos hostage. I'm taking it really well, actually. Or maybe I'm in shock.
Either way, I'm full of Christmas spirit and I'm not letting anything take it out of me. We got the tree up yesterday and I thought it needed a couple more ornaments, so lookie what I made:
They're actually not that hard once you get the hang of it. However, they turned out much bigger than I thought they would. I think these would be beautiful with a bunch strung together in a garland along a mantle or banister, or three or four hanging from a chandelier. Instructions are here.
Now I'm off to shop for a new hard drive...not exactly the holiday gift I had in mind, but I guess there are worse things. Aren't there?
