    Christmas in July

    Well I know it is just July but if I don't get with the program and replenish my stock for this coming Christmas it will be the week before and I won't be ready. So this weekend I made a bunch of ornaments, mini birdhouses and a bell. I want to make 3 or 4 more bells although they don't sell as well as the others. Don't know why. Last Christmas I sold 45 of the 60 ornaments and birdhouses I took down there so I have a few more to make yet. Anyway was a fun weekend.

    They look great, Bernie!

    I hope you Christmas season works out as well as last year. Are you selling your art at the same place?

    Great stuff, Bernie. Man, you sure seem to be getting the knack for thin icicles.

    Bernie,

    Way to plan ahead. I'm still working on a project promised two years ago. Does the bell have a clapper? Does it make any sound? How do you do the colors on the snowflakes (that's what they look like to me anyway) and the stripes?
