Merry Kissing Frog to You!

I didn't send any last year...and felt terrible...so I made amends and made some Christmas cards.  
Fabric scraps win the day again!!  I wish I had kept one for myself!
 A couple Humbug bags....helicopters for my brother and Hello Kitty for the boy's girlfriend!
 We did Secret Santa this year and I drew my niece.  After a little snooping I found a quote from Dinosaur Comics that she likes:
"The time for questions is over.
Now is the time for unbridled optimism."
I so agree!
 Embroidered it on some linen and made it into a pillow.  I also put a loop at the top in case she just wants to hang it.  Love that fabric!!
This year's tree is a two foot tall Cryptomeria  'Black Dragon' . Isn't it adorable? Several days after Christmas we will plant it near our front porch.  It only gets about ten feet tall and five feet wide. Perfect!

Here's hoping your day has been Merry and Bright and that you have been smooched by your favorite frog!;) HaHa!!;)

We miss you girl! xoxo
