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.
