|these fellows were our model tonttus|
|here are some of the supplies Linda provided|
|We started with a base of cardboard, Styrofoam, and felt|
|all self-respecting tonttus need hats|
|Mine is on the left, Hanna's is on the right.|
|Hanna named hers Ibrahim; mine is named Helga|
|We brought them back to Boston on Monday to grace our Christmas shelf|
I hope all of you are finding small and pleasurable ways of preparing for the holiday season ...
