I am working on a little political side-note, I hope it won't offend you. I like to keep my blog bright and cheerful, but this topic is under my skin, like an annoying sliver of wood. My brother and I are coordinating our blogs regarding this "sliver"...his will be factual and articulate, mine will be an emotional, raving, nonsensical editorial. We'll link up once it's a go.
On that note, I'm off. I have some sewing to do and volunteer work this afternoon. So be happy, dear friends. See ya later!

Hello, bridges! I know you haven't seen me in a very long time...but I'ma comin'! All those wonderful walks up, down, up, down...all for naught! I blew it, I fell off the wagon, I caved! Now I have to start over. But I'm gonna get back on track and walk "it" off. Oh, the injustice of it all!

. . . or, How the Other Half Lives--north of the Mason-Dixon line, that is. The bent-over gent in the picture is me (Tom), Patti's brother, stranded in an Arctic settlement known as Brockport, between Buffalo and Rochester, New York. This is how I'm enjoying my Christmas vacation. How about you folks down Florida way? I thought so--WIMPS! As of 5 p.m. Sunday, December 21, I've had to shovel out my driveway 6 times--since 11 a.m. on Friday, December 19. Seven times if you go all the way back to 5 a.m. on Tuesday, December 16. WHAT FUN! Up here, we can really relate to all those cute graphics you see on Suthun blogs of Santa in his Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses, sipping a fruity cocktail. Well, we know the REAL Santa--we live just down the street from him! So, when ya'll get tired of sweating in your shorts and T-shirts, c'mon up here and we'll put you to work in the driveway, where you can experience sweating under 7 layers of heavy clothing with a shovel, instead of a cocktail, in your hand! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Do you remember these guys? How genuinely funny they were, how much fun they seemed to be having together? I thought that maybe you'd enjoy this little clip. Just take that walk down memory lane and try to remember what you were doing way back when.

I'm waiting on Brown. I hate waitng on Brown. Something special is coming for me, via Brown. I am going to be sooooooo happy when Brown gets here. BROWN! Where are you?! I'll let you know what's in Brown's box once it arrives. And you're gonna say, "Is that all? She's nuts, that's not exciting!" But Randi will love it. Randi will be very happy for me. C'MON, BROWN!

And the winner of the waffle weave apron is...RANDI!
Any apron that I can lick chocolate right off of, is the apron for me! In fact, I will be making chocolate covered caramels will wearing it. At least I am hoping that I will! ;)

Oh, my! This is like sending a photograph that you took of your baby to Anne Geddes. Now I'm all nervous...congratulations, Randi! Please email your address to moi and I'll get that apron washed and mailed. Just kidding, I didn't use it...or did I?

I have a friend who requested 4 to 5 wristlets. OK, Friend, here they are. I decided that it would be easier to blog about them rather than email you individual pictures. Let me know which you'd like. Just shoot me an email!
I'm waiting on a very exciting package, which should arrive in the next few days. Once it's here, I'll squeel with delight and take pictures of its contents, which I'll post right here. Oh, I can't wait!!!
You all have a lovely Saturday...sleep-in, inhale the Christmas season and pass along that beautiful smile .

Plan B: use the waffle weave fabric I had stashed, cut it and hem it and add a few pretties...ta-da!
The waistband and ties feature pretty cardinals and holly, the embroidered snow couple are adorable and the red ball trim adds a little whimsy.
And it's for YOU!
The beauty of this apron is that you can wipe your damp hands on it and it'll absorb the water. You can get flour all over it and who will know? You can get chocolate on it and you can just lick it off. I mean, why waste good chocolate?
Here we go, ladies. Just leave a comment telling me what you're going to make while wearing this apron. And if I know some of you, this might be an interesting topic!
Leave your comment with your email address...many of you wonderful readers featured my last giveaway on your blog. Thank you! Do it again and you'll get an extra chance in the draw *if any of you have a great way figured out how to do that, please email me with your method*
We'll run this giveaway until next Saturday, at which time I'll let the Random-thingy do my dirty work! It's a pretty cute apron and I don't have one! Why is that?! Can I choose me?
If you'd like to purchase an apron, email me and we'll figger it out. In the meantime, good luck and enter now!

For Christmas? I'd (seriously) like a cleaning service. Twice a month would keep the piles o' crap at bay. And, after the chocolate and really REALLY good organic free trade coffee, I'd love a "subscription" to a nails or pedicure place.You can see I'm looking for creature comforts. I've decided I'm worth it!DebP.S. Mindy ROCKS!

My Photoshop Elements is installed, but it's going to take some figgerin' out. Does anyone have some extra time they can lend me?
Please enter the giveaway...time's up Thursday!

My photo-editing software arrived last evening, so I should be able to post better pictures in the very near future. Have I told you that I have my own I.T. guy? Yup! He's also referred to as MacGyver in these parts. He had a meeting last night, which was very inconvenient of him! But tonight, he's mine! In a day or two, better pictures on this blog, my friends!
Randi's reciped box swap is Thursday, so I've been thinking of a holiday recipe to share. Geez, all this pressure! So many decisions to make and so very little time.
And by the way, if you haven't entered the giveaway, do it here. I'll be announcing a winner on Thursday. I already have the next giveaway planned and it won't be a wristlet. It's something you've never seen before at It's A Wonderful... and I think you're going to like it. Stay tuned for details.

I had considered blogging in rhyme, but with Christmas coming, I just have no time!
Oh and before I forget, please enter the giveaway to win a wristlet!
