Jingle Jingle Jingle

My horses were in need of some bells.

I wish I could find smaller jingle bells but these will have to do for now. If I ever make another set, I think I’ll try attaching them a different way.

But they’re still fun and festive and make a light jingly sound whenever I touch them.😀

Continuing with yesterday’s project(s), today I shrunk a couple of my favorite Christmas stories…

christmasbooks

… and wrapped a bunch of presents.

These were made from bits of cardboard and covered with paper I printed up in Photoshop. The ribbon is full-sized curling ribbon – I just cut it down to size and curled it as usual.

No peeking!

It was also decided that the stocking I made forever ago badly needed an update.

Much better!

I might be having a bit too much fun with this but oh well… only 20 days left till Christmas!

Christmas Miniatures

My Christmas-related miniature collection keeps expanding.

Today, I put together a set of gift bags…

…and Christmas cards. I was going to put them on a string to make a garland but I have no place to put them. (YET.)

I also picked up a few things at Michael’s last weekend, as they usually have a bunch of miniatures out this time of year. I found a little tin of candy, which is perfect for the 1:9 scale world:

And this glittery top hat…

…because I collect mini hats now too, apparently. >_<

Another find was a cheap plastic nativity set.

The poor sheep didn’t have any faces!

After some re-sculpting and a bit of white paint, they’re looking a bit better:

I have ideas for more minis now too. Off to fire up Photoshop!
