    Here's a different take on the Santa Hat -- it was fun to make and it was fun to be out in the street greeting people... although it was pretty cold here in Minnesnowda this year so I didn't use it as much as I would have liked...

    the DIGWDF Store... the place to go to find stuff you didn't know existed... or that anybody would even bother to make, for that matter. www.digwdf.com/store
