Are you counting down to Christmas yet?
Better get started!

And what better way to teach your kids the meaning of Christmas
than by having them make their own gifts for family and friends?
Ornaments are only $2.00 and many other projects are only $5.00

Black Friday Sale

SMALL CLASS TONIGHT

but we had fun. A new student finished her first tree and was surprised at how well it came out. Another student painted a tree in pink translucent glaze with purple crystals (can hardly wait to see how it turns out). I painted my Starfleet tree. Alice cleaned greenware (including trees). Jim unmolded big trees and patched the pig. Kids did not show up.

BLACK FRIDAY is next week.

I need to know for sure if anyone is planning to come. We are available but I know a lot of you have other plans. Just in case — we’re having a sale, too.

New Twist on Old Trees

These are all variations on Holland 705.
It is about 12″ tall and has an extra branch that can be added to  make it 14″ tall. Trees with candy do not light up; however, when the candy is gone you can always wire it and add lights. The gingerbread tree does light up.

  1. Peppermint Tree
    clear glaze with Duncan red color burst crystals; large holes; peppermint sticks (half sticks in the lower branches)
    Keep one near the front door and Invite guests to help themselves.
  2. Candy Cane Tree
    not to be confused with the Peppermint Tree; still to come but it will be a green tree with candy canes in the holes instead of lights
  3. Lollipop Tree
    pink iridescent stain from Fashenhues; solid color, one coat, very easy to paint; lollipops fit into holes sized for small twist lights (which you can add later).
    Good tree for preschoolers to make and surely they would like one nearby.
  4. Gingerbread Tree
    use semi-translucent glaze in light shade of brown; if you have fired snow you can add it now; I used non-fired snow to make the icing, sprinkled with a little red glitter; and used ball pinlights.
    A nice nightlight  tree for in the kitchen near where the baking is done.
  5. Gingerbread Cookie Tree
    not to be confused with the Gingerbread tree; it is a regular green-glazed tree with ginger cookies glued on. (not quite finished)

Six Geese A-Laying

Canadian Goose Spinning Carousel

Bisque price for a pair of these geese is $5.00.
Here they are shown on our Christmas Goose Spinning Carousel! 

These carousels are very relaxing and fascinate young children as they spin back and forth. If you would like to make a spinning carousel (either with the geese or other attachments) bisque is $10.00 for the carousel and $10.00 for the attachments.

Five Gold Rings,

Four Calling Birds,

Three French Hens,

Two Turtle Doves

and A Partridge in a Pear Tree.
