Sylvanian Baby Christmas Ornament

Today I also received a parcel from Castorfiber, A Sylvanian Baby Christmas Ornament (we had several Christmas trades on our forum this year)

In this parcel not only was there a baby ornament, several miniatures to go in my Sylvanian houses, but also some beautiful crochet items, ornament & a couple of wooden carved ornaments for the Christmas tree.
I also received some yummy lollies/sweeties/candy & chocolates!
I love the Christmas Cards too!

The beautiful angel baby in our tree.

a Christmas Celebration parcel!

This arrived today, I knew it would be different to any other parcels I've received this year!

Beautifully individually wrapped presents & a Saint Nicholas Chocolate letter!

(It's been so hot here in Australia our letter melted!)

First some tiny "ear bows" (keep an eye out for these later!)

A lovely decorated tree, a Christmas card with baubles on the front, a porcelain teaset,
a Sylvanian Families miniatures/keychain making set, & a SANTA BEAR!

The Wildwoods love a good party, & a Christmas party is special!

A big thank you to Bloem who sent me this (all the way from the Netherlands!)

The Wildwoods & I love it!!

Custom characters

Recently I attempted to paint some factory seconds Sheep, here are the results.
As you can see some of the paint ended up where it wasn't supposed to be, & some sheep did end up with smudges on them.
Unfortunately being factory second they had some patches of flocking missing.
The adults & one baby I painted with watercolour paint straight from it's tube, but the child & other baby I took apart & painted with watercolour paint that was slightly watered down, they turned out much better in that there were less smudges, it was easier stay within the lines, & their flocking stayed softer,  but due to the paint being watered down they needed more layers & still didn't end up quite as dark as the one painted with undiluted paint.
I don't mind the end result, live sheep often have colour spot "blemishes" anyway, so they are still realistic enough for me!

Here is the link for the tutorial I read before attempting any painting customs:
