Since moving to Hawaii in October, I have been living in an apartment building for the first time in about a decade.  In an effort to be a better neighbor than I likely was in my early twenties, I have decided to actually try to be a likable human being. As a family of 4 (two of which are a loud 6 & Cool, living in about 500 square feet... well, I have settled on the method of bribery as the best path to follow.

St. Patty's has been the first holiday that has arrived since we moved in, and thus the first opportunity for my to quill my little heart out neighbor style.  I chose to make a holiday ornament that could be hung from a window or such and I can later add to the collection as future holidays approach.  Here is what I came up with yesterday:

 

It measures about 2.5 inches wide by 3.5" tall.  I liked how it turned out but my neighbor seemed quite unimpressed.  Oh well, there is always Easter Smiley

Keep at it, gently, unrelentingly, neighborly. They will come around if only in self-defense!

The ornament is beautiful!

This is beautiful! Your neighbor is nuts. It sounds like a lovely gesture to me.

Did you coat it in something? It looks so shiny and pretty!
