Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone! Over here in Australia, it's currently 6:30pm on boxing day, so the merry christmas is a little late... Did you all have a nice day? I love Christmas, and honouring God on this special day.

WELL. Now that everyone has been given all their presents, I feel no shame in revealing them all to you. :)

The first is this wall hanging that was for my older sister:
It is Psalm 121:1-2. There's a Christian band in the USA called Casting Crowns (really awesome!), and they wrote a song called "Praise You in This Storm." My older sister had this song played at her baptism a few years ago, and the bridge of the song is these verses. There's an image of hills, with the rising sun and cross on the top most hill, at the bottom (as you can see).

Second is a crimminal/robber guy I made for my younger brother. I had already made him a policeman for his birthday earlier this year, and he wanted a robber to go with it. The clothes are bead woven, and air dry clay makes up the feet, hands, head and body. Based on a pattern by Jill Oxton. The legs and arms consist of tahitian black pearls and black/white glass beads, threaded on wire with the ends buried in the clay.

 This is the robber and policeman together. I quite proud of these little people!

And of course there's that cuff I made for my other sister, shown on a different post.

And I also made TWO sales in the week just gone:

My Twisted in Blue Brilliance necklace, which was my entry into the EBW November challenge this year

 And these earrings, which are sort of like Christmas trees. Maybe. They're Christmas earrings, anyway.

So I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and that Santa was good to you!

I'm off to finish my "Winter Wonderland" for the EBEG Bead Fest. :D
