Santa and the act of giving

It's a whopping - 3.7 degrees here in Boston today. Yes I did say MINUS 3.7!!  Chilly!  That is not why I am talking about Santa.  I'm here to show you my latest creations.  Altho I do wish I had a warm Santa type coat to wear today.  

The Spirit of Santa is something that should be remembered all year round.  It is a good feeling to give to others.  This gift doesn't always have to be something you can hold in your hands.  Another type gift comes from the heart.

In these cold winter days, when all the holidays are over, and life is kind of waiting for the next event, surprise someone and give a gift.  This can be a kind word to someone standing in line at the store, or help a neighbor, make cookies for someone. 

Santa is about 4.5" tall.

Call a friend you haven't spoken to in a long time, as sometimes we forget the joy of hearing someones voice and expressions rather than just reading an e-mail.  A true gift is giving something without expecting anything in return.  

The bunny is checking to be sure everything in is place,  Can he see there is a toy snowman trying to sneak out of the bag?
 Take some time today and try to give a gift of your heart.  Maybe your small act of kindness might change someone else's day.

Santa's backpack filled with gifts.  Included is a hand molded bunny and a vintage German head doll.

Santa is 7.5 " to the top of his hood.

Santas- These will be appearing on e-bay shortly.  They were both great fun to create.  I hope you like them.
