So our family Christmas was last Sunday night, and I can finally show you the presents I was working on so madly.

(You may want to refer back to my first post about these, where I said something about family weirdness.)

So, for the last year, off and on, I've been working to produce these (closeups courtesy of the lovely Emma):
