Merry Christmas!

Dear Shayne,

Technically, Christmas is already over where you are, but we still have a few hours left to squeeze out of it here on the west coast, so Merry Christmas!

I received several awesome crafty gifts this year that I will show you in the upcoming week or so but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you a Craft from Christmas Past. It's an oldy but a goody:

My Aunt Vickie made this ornament for me when I was... well... let me see... it was before we moved from Michigan, so I was under 9 years old. Let's put this one in the early 80s time frame.

Aunt Vickie is one of those "Martha before Martha was Martha" crafty superhero types -- she probably made one of these for everyone in her entire family. Wow. This work is appreciated; I've had this ornament for over 25 years and I still put it on our tree every Christmas. Aww.

Shayne, I hope that you and all of our readers have had a wonderful Christmas and that the upcoming year will be filled with joy and love and peace and craftiness.

I don't know how I missed seeing this the first time I visited you blog. This ornament brings back many great memories, of when you were child. I am touched that you have found a place on your tree each year to remember how much you are loved. This Martha is very proud of everything she see's you have become. Love always Aunt Vic
