merry christmas to all...

after nibbling santa cookies and stuffing santa stockings, and doing all other sorts of santa things (not the least of which was stitching up one christmas-y, jingle bell-y, special collar/necklace for one best friend of the bean's named puppa), i am off to bed.

...and to all a good night.

cookie elves.

we have finally gotten into the holiday spirit! things have been a bit crazy around here, but finally i'm getting into it. i finished the matching (cheesy, i know) aprons i made for the bean, my mom, and myself just in time for our marathon cookie-making days. we are squeezing a ridiculous amount of baking into just 3 days. (normally we bake for weeks ahead.)

i love how they turned out... i can't get the bean to stand still these days with the amount of christmas excitement and cookies in her system, but this photo shows the apron off the best...

i've also had just a fantastic end of year in the shop . i had some small goals for myself by year's end and i doubled each and every one. so thanks! i'll be saying thanks in a special way starting the day after christmas in the shop, so stop in when you can.

i'm down to my last bit of christmas making, just a few more presents, including a tutu for the bean, a pin for my gram, and a couple other bits. i'm finally starting to relax... come on, christmas!

i hope you all are in the same spot - happy making & baking!
