(Vintage French postcard from my personal ephemera collection...Merry Christmas!)
We're all more than a little sad here today because we had to cancel our Cookie Chaos 2009 party. We kept our hopes up that maybe a few folks could brave the snow, but it's turned into a blizzard. Have I mentioned that I don't really like snow? Because I don't. I like to look at snow. I know lots of people love it and they're entitled to that feeling. I'd love to move to Hawaii and look at pretty pictures of snow while sitting in the warm sun drinking a tasty beverage with a decorative umbrella from a pineapple.
Yes, I'd like that very much. Sign me up.
I did call it Cookie Chaos. Perhaps we need a name change!
Avalon is having a friend over for the weekend and they'll decorate some cookies together and I'll console myself with egg nog and fondue. We've decided to host Christmas so that's something.
I shall cease being a Debby Downer now and leave you with your weekly dose of crafty inspiration from the Crafty Blogger's Gang! Huzzah!
