Not much has happened creatively around here lately, unless you count this festive diorama that I fashioned to rekindle the memory of my daughter’s Thankgiving-tide wisdom tooth extraction for many holidays to come. I call it “A Very Wisdom Christmas.”

Januaria is just around the corner. The gifts are all 75% off. Don’t forget to stock up on root vegetables. I learned the hard way — don’t put the candles directly into the hot casserole dish, as the roasted root goodness will melt the wax all over the place.
