crunch time

Ok. 15 days. It's crunch time, y'all. Much coffee. Little sleep. That Santa is a harsh taskmaster, I tell ya.

I saw these two posts on Matsutake the other day and wanted to share them with y'all. This is so where I'm at right now.

Christmas. The holiday season is for crafters what the playoffs are for, uh, whatever sports teams have playoffs. Well, no, wait. It's like the Miss America Pageant for pageant girls, and I am putting vaseline on my teeth right now. I am not going to wake up sometime in mid-December and say, "Whoops, I didn't get anything made this year, I wasted my time relaxing with loved ones." No way! Not this year! There is no time for loved ones. There is no time for relaxing. There are Christmas crafts to be made. Break out the papier mache. It's on! I'll sleep in January. Who's with me? We'll only eat espresso and power bars. There will be no bathroom breaks. We will wear astronaut diapers (available at Michael's in the scrapbooking department). (LOVED THIS!!! Read the rest here.)

So, if you're looking for me, I'm the one with little bits of string sticking to me and the crochet blisters on my fingers.

(and I swear ima gonna get that graphic tattooed on my butt)


  1. Aw, I remeber Christmas with four kids and a crafter wife. Those were fun times. But, I'm glad those times are over for Nana and Me, lol, love y'all,Poppy

  2. Go Wendy! I can't wait til after Christmas when we get see pics of all the cool stuff you made!!
