Our pup, Sugar, will be 7 years old next April. In all that time I've never put a bow on her. Until now. Oh my gosh, what was I waiting for!?! I gave her a bath today and made her a little bow (well, not so little lol) on a whim. I don't think she'll be bowless for the rest of her life.

Bettsi requested a picture of our new nativity set all set up. It's Jim Shore's Hearthwood Creek. I just love it.

I seem to be queen of the blurry pictures these days. I pushed so many buttons on my camera while trying to get a picture of the Christmas tree that I don't know how to get it back to normal. Maybe if I took the batteries out...

Nothing much interesting going on here. I'm trying to organize a bit despite being sick. Someone (I think that's me) needs to get busy wrapping presents. And someone (me again, I think) needs to do some baking!

I just recently found your blog and am really enjoying it. I love your creations! I followed your tutorial for bendy people and I wondered if you would share what materials you use for hair and how you attach it. I'd love to make one or more of these as Christmas gifts.

Thanks in advance

Hi Karen!

I didn't address hair or clothing in the tutorial because there are soooo many different ways of doing things.

I use pearle cotton for hair (just glued on with tacky glue). I often see wool roving, embroidery floss, or yarn used for hair as well.

Oh my gosh, she's so sweet. Reminds me of our dog Muffin (I know, I didn't name her) we had when I was growing up. She always had a ribbon in her hair.

Gotta go, cat eating Jesse Tree!

Sugar seems rather happy wearing the bow--quite a festive look! Your Christmas decorations look so pretty.

Sweet Sugar! Yes, she should always have a bow in her hair. The nativity looks great! Guess what! The basket arrived Saturday! Love everything! Will try to get some photos for some blog love. Thank you so much! (Also need to get that hat to you!) Hope your Christmas was merry and that you are feeling better.
