I am so jealous! I wanted a digital SLR forever, but had to save up for mine.

Your camera should have come with a manual. You can also check out the "For Dummies" version for that camera. Not trying to be insulting, those books are very informative and are written in an easy-to-comprehend way.

Good luck! I can't wait to see all the pics you're going to take.

One of my favorite tricks is to use a large aperture because it makes the background blurry. Something like that works great with close-up pics like the ones of your ornaments. And I also like to add a little edge burn to all my pics (though that is an editing trick, rather than a photography thing).
