Woo hoo, somebody’s been out of sorts lately. And that would be me.
Figured I gots to get my mojo back. And what better excuse for mojo rejuvenation than Christmas! Shiny lights! Bright, clashing colors! Elves! A snowstorm of glitter! These are a few of my favorite things.
Nothing like an overabundance of ornaments to make me feel jolly again. This is the first time in three years we’ve had our decorations. As I unwrapped them and put them on the tree, my demeanor instantly changed for the better. Remember the Jetsons cartoon? I have a talking Rosie the robot maid. How the heck could I not be happy now?
I’ve been doing a major overhaul on my sewing room. (Hmmm…cleaning could have something to do with general grumpiness…) But that’s a good thing! I have new equipment. Major new equipment. Equipment that does really good tricks.
My new sewing machine made this stocking. And I helped! I got some fun holiday fabrics at my local crack house (okay, it’s a sewing machine dealer/fabric store. But I spend all my money there. It’s an addiction.) Used the colors from the fabrics to make the stocking. This puts the fun in funky! Awesome and weird Christmas color palette.
I like the background for these photos. It’s a bunch of santa hats, a santa tiara, elf ears and a talking elf. The elf actually hums, he doesn’t talk. Hums along to 3 Christmas songs. And it still makes me laugh every time.
This is my ninjabread man. He’s got a throwing star with frosting. And a bandolier of ornaments. He and I look badass in this shirt. If you’re gonna wear an embroidered shirt, it should have something sassy on it. That’s my theory.
Stay crafty, my friends.
