It's That Time of Year Again.....

Time for the usual High Holiday Anxiety to set in, throwing me into a state of utter panic - about pending commissions, about all the holiday themed work I need to complete in the next couple of weeks, about the boxes of decorations strewn around the house waiting for someone who actually has the TIME to turn this place into something approaching festive, about all those handmade gifts in progress.....I need some ELVES, lol!

I'm wishing we had the time to travel elsewhere for the holidays, saving the need for all the decorating, baking, entertaining and such, but with Christmas being John's only remaining day off this year, travel is out of the question. So I suppose I'd better resign myself to some very long days these next few weeks, and try to remember it's like this every year, and it always comes together in the end. :)

In the meantime, I'd better get busy. There's a new Yuletide sign calling my name, and I hope to finish and list it this afternoon.

But if anyone does know where I can find some elves, lol....

Frantic but festively yours,

Fudge. There's gonna be fudge, right? And...more chex mix? And what about sugar cookies? And are there Christmas crackers on the tree? There need to be. And make sure you don't forget to put out the Manger so that dad's little army guys have a place to hang out. And will there be thumbprint cookies? I love those.

Better get crackin.

Yeah, I'll get right on that. And someone else I know needs to get crackin' on those travel arrangements home, before tickets are sold out. ;)
