Merry Christmas!

Well, it's Christmas Eve.  About 3 weeks early, I believe.  Don't know how they do it but somehow every year someone manages to shift Christmas earlier and earlier into the year.  KWIM? 

I've still got a bit of straightening up to do, a smidge of shopping (oh joy), a bit of baking, A LOT of wrapping.  Hopefully I'll get all this done by mid-afternoon.  (Well, some of the wrapping will have to wait until after bedtime!)  Then it can be snuggle with the kids time.  Get in jammies time. 

Sprinkle the Reindeer Food time.



Leave the key out for Santa time.



Unwrap the highly anticipated Christmas Eve presents time.



Leaving out the milk, cookies, and carrots time.



And then snuggle in for a healthy ration of cuddling and classic Christmas cartoons before heading off to bed for those Sugarplum performances. 

One last bit of Christmas creating before I sign off for the big day:



Happiness is buying the final gift of the season.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........  Hope you've achieved your happieness today!



I really love the little Shinzi Katoh "I Love NY" shopping girl stamp that is in this month's Torendi Modern Red kit and had been planning to use it for a Christmas shopping-themed project all month.  Also from the kit are the Jillibean Soup patterned paper, the American Craft cardstock, and a GORGEOUS earth-toned button. 

If you don't get that perfect crafting gift under the tree tomorrow, are lucky enough to get some fun money, or just want to treat yourself after a hard few weeks of crafting, shopping, decorating, and baking in preparation for that perfect holiday you no doubt will have pulled off, there's still time to purchase the Torendi Modern Red kit!!!!!  Check it out!!

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by to look at and encourage my little crafty obsession this year!  I am humbled and honored.

Hope you have a happy, safe, healthy, loving holiday!
