chris, I don't know who the winner is. my bet was the previous shot. I will try to ask later next week.

hokulea, yes, we have some in Cebu and here in NY too. not sure if they have survived 2 Christmases though hahaha!

Terence, i think there were about 36 entries. 10 are quite eyecatching and innovative. the rest are traditional.

alight, well thank you! Happy Holidays!

Lori- you mean to say the flat kite right? yes, for uniqueness, it was a standout. just too easy to make to make the cut though.
Farl 2005-12-19 03:58:13
