You snagged the Wii. The sweaters, slippers and dolls are bought and wrapped. But before you sit back and enjoy your hot chocolate by the fire, take a look at those stockings hanging from the mantel. Looking a little limp? There's still time to find a few small gifts that will brighten Christmas morning without adding substantially to the after-the-holidays credit-card shock. Here are some finds from area boutiques and artisans: Bite Me Spears Dog Toy Your pooch has the organic dog treats and the hand-knit sweater, and now he can have his own pop icon to play with.

March is -- was -- National Craft Month, by what authority I am not sure. Since Americans spend 7.5 hours per week working on crafts -- another fact of uncertain origin -- I thought it would be a good month in which to write a column dedicated to crafters and their many homespun projects. But I didn't get it finished. For that reason, this tribute to crafters is late. But it is done, which is more than can be said for the projects undertaken by most crafters. If crafters have anything in common, it is a wealth of good intentions.

A long with trees and wreaths, stockings are among the most treasured symbols of the holiday season. In some families, Christmas stockings are heirlooms passed from generation to generation, with collections starting with a baby's first stocking. Four in five Americans polled by Sprint, the telephone company, say adults enjoy them, too. In fact, holiday stockings have evolved into vibrant decorative accents that can be color-keyed to furnishings. Stockings can be supersized to contain a treasure of stuffers or petite enough to serve as tree ornaments or hold flatware at the dinner table.

MARYLAND is the home of "leading-edge companies," says state economic development czar Aris Melissaratos, and a Dec. 9th stock issue in Anne Arundel County proves him right. Foundation Coal Holdings Inc., based in Linthicum Heights, raised $519 million in an initial public offering that was so popular the company bumped the selling price from $18 or so to $22 a share. Foundation operates 13 coal mines from West Virginia to Wyoming. What, you were expecting biotech? Telecom? Get your head out of the 20th century.

I am completely disappointed in Mayor Sheila Dixon. This woman has the nerve to continue with her smug attitude of entitlement and indifference - disgusting! No matter how much her supporters say the charges and prosecution against her were petty, Mayor Dixon is what she is: a petty thief. She has completely forgotten where she came from, but we in Baltimore are not fooled. I am tired of seeing her on television with these transparent publicity stunts. She needs to go away like Tiger Woods and let the city heal from this embarrassment.
