Happy New Year!

Hope your celebration was safe and happy!

It seems appropriate to post a picture of these adorable Olive Penguins today since I feel like we're living in the arctic. The temperature outside is a lovely 10 degrees, with a wind-chill of 6 below zero. Lovely! At this rate, the snow will never melt!

DD made this set of Olive Penguins for one of our Christmas gatherings. Thanks to the Paper Capers blog for a great tutorial! Next time, I'll buy smaller olives for the heads, and we'll work a bit harder on smoothing their little white bellies. And somehow, we ended up with several penguins with no heads at all. But in the end, these were only minor technical difficulties which did not significantly diminish the overall Cute Factor.

Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog this year. I am just amazed that anyone at all stops by, and I truly appreciate each and every visit! Here's wishing you the best for 2008!

Those are cute! I had a friend who made deviled eggs with olive spiders on them for Halloween one year. (They only had six legs, but still must have taken forever.)

Happy New Year!

Thx for stopping by, everyone! I take no credit for the adorable penguins. Without Alyssa's great tutorial, we never would have attempted them! So fun to make...but they sure didn't last long! :-) Happy New Year! jp
