For I've grown a little leaner
 

Perhaps this was the most satisfying ornament in the set. As I painted a skinny Santa in huge pant, I couldn't help but think about the fat pants that I put away this year. I ended the year much lighter than how it started.

As for the cord, I wanted to give it a little extra dimension with the golden thread. I had to make holes in the eggshell (after it was painted) to insert the thread. I only broke the egg once, but you'll never see where it happened.
