I love Christmas, its my fav of all the holidays. Every year I usually paint my nails with a Christmas theme, thanks to my eyes getting worse this year I thought Id make earrings instead!

Mistletoe, gifts, Piggies, and a decorated tree
The wee piggies are for my Mum, the bank she works at has a Pig as a mascot

The piggies are the easiest wee beggers to make. Its a bit of skin tone mixed with a teeny bit of red.
Make an oval shape and pinch up two triangles (the ears) and fold the tips over. Roll 4 balls, two of them slightly larger, for the arms and legs (larger for the legs), roll another ball for the snout. Roll a teeny tiny snake out for the tail, loop it and attatch to the back. With a pin poke in two eyes, roll two teeny black snaked and poke into the holes and press into place (I used a dressmakers pin) with the side of the pin mark the trotters and the snout and the money slot at the top  Grin put the loop piece in and bake! Done  Grin
