Good little mouse

Thank-you notes were a big deal in my house growing up and I took them very seriously. I had a great aunt who gave out single dollars each Christmas, and it became a joke in my family that one year I thanked her for "the good dollar," having already used "nice" and "useful" in previous years...Here's Mimi Mousekin busy with her letters...

Magical Wonder Tree!

Oh Magical Wonder Tree, at first you were an afterthought.
Not being very happy with the main tree we got (which is perfectly nice but turned out not to be great for showcasing ornaments), I picked you up a few days before Christmas and put you on the table. You are the perfect home for my handmade critters, and calling for more and more decorations day by day, you have truly become a thing of splendor!

You have made an impression on our home, and even when you're gone, you will not be forgotten.

Merry Mouse on the tree!

Here's how my new mouse ornament looks on the tree. Those big ears really pop!

beading around...

i've been in need of a new "everyday" necklace, so got out my beading stuff and's been a while but i like the result and think i'll get a lot of use out of this.
