I can faintly smell Christmas as it approaches, with its fresh scent of pines, cinnamon and apple pies. Houses starting to adorn the nights with their colourful light displays and wreathes hanging on doors like winning medals proclaiming victory.
Love seems to blossom more beautifully during this time of year and we appear to open our kindness door a little wider. Our step has more determination and like warriors we enter those crowded malls with a purpose. We become master Chefs in our kitchens and host lavish parties which linger till morning.
We will shop, we will decorate, we will cook, we will gather…but will we stop to remember the true meaning of the word Christmas and its significance to us? I hope we do, for because of his birth we have a Wonderful Counselor, a Mighty God, an Everlasting Father and a Prince of Peace.
1. To form the shank of the key, roll a piece of clay into a cylinder shape to desired size.
2. Trim both ends of the cylinder and take the pieces you just cut off and cut them in half as shown.
3. Add those pieces to one end of the key as these will become the ‘bit’ or ‘tooth’ of the key
(not sure which is the right term for it)
4. Trim the other half a little smaller and place on top.
1. To make the bow, roll another cylinder shape, this time much thinner than the ‘shank’ of the key
