OK, so here's my reason for the word-association game (which almost nobody felt like playing, meanieheads) - I need to start making Christmas ornaments! My first idea was sushi ornaments, which kind of grew into sushi/eggroll/takeout box/fortune cookie ornaments based on the cat toys here.

But now I'm not sure I want to do the Japanese-food-themed ornaments. I was thinking something Oregon-themed, like Christmas umbrellas, too. :) But nothing is really motivating my creative juices. Last year I crocheted mitten ornaments and it took forever. The year before I crocheted and starched snowflakes. I've also done little angels out of toothpicks and feathers and embroidery floss.

I always have this problem and I always figure out a way around it, but I still thought I'd ask for opinions - if you can think of any interesting ornaments that you've seen made or that should be made, let me know. If I use your idea, I'll even send you one!

Edit: This is kind of a cute idea, maybe I'll think about doing something like that. Stars are fun.

Or I could do something like this picture here.

Hehe :D If I could find some pretty star patterns, I might make them! I just don't know what I'd make them out of. The paper ones are nice but they don't seem to be nice enough that I'd want to give them out to people.

Well, if you have any friends who are like me and have a serious love of paper, then it would be nice enough. But, I see what you mean. It might not seem nice enough for the non-weirdos. ;)
