Ok so the ribbon isn't in them yet and they need to be spray varnish but really 12 handpainted wooden decorations in one evening is not bad even for this Christmas elf.
Sorry about the gender specific colours but the girls are all very girly girls and love pink - as do I. Maybe no apology is necessary then? Every year one or two little ones get added to the list (welcome Wolfgang and Rueben!) and I wonder how many babies 2011 will bring? It's a sweet way to mark the year and has become one of my favourite traditions. you can see past years decorations here and here RAMONA
