A few weeks ago, plushie maker extraordinaire, Sinnamin, came up with the idea of a RA-themed holiday swap. Think of it as a Kris Kindle for cRAfty fans. Right up my street, and I hurried to sign up for it. Coincidence paired off the participants and Sinnamin sent us the name of the fellow fan for whom we had to craft our holiday gift. She was also the inspiration for my particular crafty idea because a few weeks prior to that she had made some adorable little Christmas tree decorations in her inimitable style. I wrecked my brain how I could possibly make a Christmassy decoration in my preferred artistic form. Eureka – I decided to make a half-bauble. I ordered in some see-through, fillable baubles, Christmas-themed cake decorations (!), and some Epsom Salts, and set about experimenting.
No, I was not suffering from indigestion or constipation, despite recurring tummy aches in the pursuit of coming up with a design that satisfied my own expectations. The Epsom Salts serve as the icy backdrop to the hotness that is Sir Guy of Gisborne. He was to be “enbaubled” as my partner for the swap was Glady – which is short for “Gisborne’s Lady”!
Since she has now received her Richie holiday gift, I can now present a true novelty. The makers of RAPS present: RAXS – the RA Xmas Sphere.
Not sure what he is waiting for, getting his feet wet in the snow, but ho
t-ho t-ho t , there is the wintery scene. Some weird Jedi monk has sneaked into the scene… Is that that Hermitage fella?
When it’s illuminated by a candle, it glows very nicely. And the snow sparkles and looks really icy. Suitably wintery…
So there we are, Guy walking in a winter wonderland… Hope Glady likes it…
