Rudolph the polka dot nose reindeer

I don’t know about you but now that the Halloween decorations have come down I started feeling the cottage was looking a little bare so I thought I’d start adding a  few festive decorations, especially as I am in full on Christmas crafting mode … it helps to get the festive creative juices flowing … any excuse !
Joking aside, 


over the last few years I’ve not really enjoyed it.  From now until basically Christmas Eve I know I will be burning the candle at both ends trying to get orders made and run my market stall, attend Christmas fairs and basically be a festive bunny on duracell overdrive.  So by Christmas Day I tend to be 
exhausted dot com
So ….  this year I’ve decided to forget about people moaning “it’s too early for decorations”  and start putting mine up now so I can enjoy them.  Before you start freaking out I don’t mean ‘ALL’ of them, just some.  
I’m starting with this little fella … Rudolph the spotty nose reindeer.  
I’ve been seeing a lot of lovely stag heads online and in magazines and have even started a pinterest board for my love of reindeer!
  I’ve had this little guy planned in my head for a while and finally got round to making him this week.  

I love how he came out, although I’m already planning to make one a little bigger one :O) 

Ho! Ho! Ho!  
Orders to make and products to post in my etsy shop so I better go go go !

    You have just described my daughters Christmas to a 'T'. And she loves it too! So good idea to enjoy a snippet or two now. I love your reindeer head. They are my favourite decorating idea at the moment and I am tempted to make my own. Not sure it or he will look as good as your though.
