So. Steve is in Japan for the week. The good news is that his cell phone works there - so it doesn't cost anything for me to call him. The bad news? Umm...figuring out when to call him. Japan is one day ahead, but seven hours earlier. Let's do the math. Right now, plus twenty four minus seven (10:20pm[here] + 24) -7 = 3:20pm tomorrow afternoon[there].

So...for the last time, here are some more pictures of the pine cones I made - this time showing the tops. Every one I made is a little different, but most share elements. For instance, I bought one package of assorted sizes of jingle bells - and used whatever size or amount I felt like. I purchased one or two fake ferns fronds that were covered in gold glitter and cut them apart and hot glued various sized pieces on, ditto artificial pine branches...for the 'hangers' I used ribbon, rick rack and jute string and attached them with a combination of straight pins and hot glue.
