the merriest


Only two more sleeps ’til Christmas! We had our ‘Office Christmas’ and, I gotta tell ya, I made out like a fricken bandit. Candles, candy, gift cards, star warsy stuff, homemade goodies, super cute stationery and even some holiday socks (red and green, they say: IF IT’S SNOWING, I’M NOT GOING.)

Total lovefest. Even with all the loveliness, twinges of sadness have been creeping up on me. That’s normal for this time of year, right? Holidays tend to bring up a lot of emotions as we reflect on the good and the not so good.

Don’t even ask me about Episode 7…or I’ll cry all over you (wait, someone actually gifted me some ‘holiday’ tissues…sweet).

Last night I watched Emmet Otter (another awesome Christmas gift) and maybe I felt a bit sad so maybe I opened one of my Mom’s gifts early. Maybe. Definitely. Thank goodness it was a pair of adorable penguin jammies and a blanket. Exactly what I needed. Thanks, Mom.

For the next few days I’m going to take things easy and straighten up the house. After that I am going to plan some new designey projects for 2016. I’m still undecided about whether to revive my Etsy shop or move things over to Society6 once and for all. Of course, I put together a calendar for you (like I do every year). I’ll post it on the blog as a free printable in the next few days.

Until then, Merriest merry to you and all the happy you can stand.  X
