Thanks guys! A lot of people at the party were mad that I smelled so good...I used a maple syrup fragrance oil to get into character =0)
Maybe I'll bring a big bowl of Buddy's spaghetti this year *yuck*

This isn't a cheap plug or anything because I know the guys who made it  Tongue
There is a documentary about real bearded Santas called "I am Santa Claus" they profile a year in the life of several men that work as Santa. It was on Netflix last year and we watched it at least 5 times. It's so good. (Not family friendly)

"Get Santa" is another newer favorite of mine. I watch strictly all Christmas movies and tv episodes through December...but that one stands out.

I'm in North Carolina for a wrestling trip at the moment...sometime this week I plan on one last craft store trip and maybe I can start to finish up.

My Mom makes stuffed french toast for breakfast. When we were kids, it was the only way to get us to eat breakfast on Christmas when we were too excited over our toys to want to eat.

The stuffing is something along the lines of cream cheese, brown sugar, raisins and carrot shreds and the french toast is actual french bread. This was also what started our breakfast buffet.

I made this Buddy inspired costume last year to wear for Christmas


I added the plush fur to the dress. I made the hat, the curly toed shoes and the Etch A Sketch purse (close up here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=441651.0 ) I even made a snow globe of my favorite bar as a gift to them (where I am pictured above) AND I smelled like maple syrup!!! =0)

I travel from PA to CT for Christmas eve in costume every year. Last year, it was rainy and cruddy and I almost didn't do it...but I thought that would be when people need the smiles most. While waiting for my coffee at a Rest Stop, I was approached by two tiny little girls in Elf on the Shelf jammies that wanted to know if I worked for Santa. My heart almost exploded.

I had so much fun in this costume, I'm probably going to fix it up and wear it again this year (the shoes and hat didn't make it). People get so caught up in the chaos of the holidays that they forget to smile and more importantly to make other people smile =0)

Bonus photo of me meeting my first niece for the first time (I wasn't ready!)

I made this felt and vinyl Etch a Sketch purse to go with my Buddy the Elf costume from the movie "Elf" that I wore for Christmas last year. It reads: "I'm sorry I ruined your lives and crammed 11 cookies into the VCR. I don't belong here. I don't belong anywhere. I'll never forget you. Love, Buddy"

Thank you all for your kind words <3

I've been working on a mish mash of stuff for the swap and for myself, so I have been keeping my hands and brain busy as best I can. It helps. I think I will feel a little better once I travel out to see my family this weekend.

~I finished one swap thing and I am working on a handful of other things simultaneously. The first thing came out so good that I might make more.
~I'm putting together a display for my hand made pinback buttons for a huge wrestling convention my boyfriend is signing at Thanksgiving weekend. I'm super excited about it.
~I'm also putting together a small package for a friend who's brother passed away this summer and won't be visiting for Christmas.

I can't wait for December. I need all the Holly Jolly I can stand =0)

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is my all time favorite. It always brings a tear to my eye.

My Aunt passed away suddenly the other day and I have been a complete mess. Her family is the reason why we started our Christmas breakfast buffet tradition over a decade ago. No matter which direction our lives went, we just wanted to eat lots of food and laugh with each other even if for only one day a year.

I walked all over town today, and happened to wander by AC Moore and picked up a bunch of things for swapping. I'm working on a bunch of things at the moment...it's helping to clear my mind, big time. I have to keep on chugging along.

I have a small Christmas section on top pf our DVD shelf that stays up all year including a Charlie Brown tree =0)



~The Trailer Park Boys Christmas Special box (mostly hidden) and "Letters to Santa" which we got when we saw them live. And a printed card my bf gave me.
~A real life bar of Life Buoy soap (Christmas Story)
~A Trans Siberian Orchestra VIP pass from 2004.
~There are a few other Christmas cards from friends over the years that didn't make the photo

We spend Christmas traveling so we don't bother put up a tree. My Mom puts up a fake one that is decorated with ornaments from when we were kids....including a terribly embarrassing photo one from second grade when I didn't know it was picture day and then the teacher made us make ornaments from our school photo for our parents...My Mom insists on putting it up and my job is to find it and hide it as far into the tree as possible so nobody sees it.
