It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Finally a chance today to catch up on blog-land. Whew, it's been one busy fall. I think I know how Santa must feel from September through December-- it's probably his busy season too. At least he has "people" to help in his workshop. My "people" include teenagers and an 18 pound cat who thinks he owns our house. (Come to think of it, so do my teenagers.) I can bet Santa probably hasn't been enlisted to help fill out an 18 page college application, or to help plan a rehearsal dinner for his oldest kid, or to find milk for someone or clean underwear. I don't even think Santa has kids, which is probably how he's able to get it all done each year. For the record, my family is pretty tolerant of their distracted mother, and they all seem not to mind stepping over drying papier mache heads, or sweeping away glitter before dinner. All in all, it's a wonderful life. :)
Here are some of the things I've been working on instead of dinner. It looks like snowmen and candy canes have been my favorite motifs lately. All of these designs are available now at Glitter and Grunge.

Hi Cathy~
Love your notes about teenagers, dinners...underwear! How can I convince them...when the last pair goes on their body~ to simply let me know? :D A new pile would appear~ but sometimes the deadlines need completing before the "whites get washed" teehee
LOVE your new little projects!
They're dear~
Hope you have a wonderful week...

It does, indeed, sound as though you have a wonderful life!
Many Blessings,

I love it when Christmas comes early! What you've crafted so far is adorable. :) 18 lb cat?? My cats must not be eating enough because they're both only about 10 lbs. :)

Beautiful! I love the little snowmen. You know, you've got me thinking about Santa. I think that he steals all of those toys. I've never heard of him holding down a job.

Your snowmen are just adorable, Cathy! Loved the post text, also--
