oh, christmas tree

While my cousin Austin put up a rather modest Christmas tree,
I decided on something a little more elaborate.
But it is still humble in its own way. Having a slight dearth in Christmas ornaments and a reluctance to buy any, I decided on origami ornaments. In a way it's tribute to my Lissy's Friends book--an opportunity to re-use those folding skills!

Though I have to admit, during the painting of Lissy's Friends the only shape I really mastered was the crane. So it was with great pride that I finally managed the origami lily,

pig,
butterfly,
and goldfish.

Now I just need something for the top of the tree. Maybe I should make the Lissy doll an angel outfit!

Love the origami! The kids just did some at the bookstore. I know who could help make a Lissy angel outfit...
