We are Santa’s Elves

December 2, 2011

So I have been trying to kick it into gear a bit more with my gift making/crafting over the last week to get ready for the holidays. I am going to start baking cookies soon which means two things. One, expect a few posts about them. And two, my sewing time will be limited so I need to get going now! Since it is past Thanksgiving it is now acceptable for me to decorate for the holidays and start listening to Christmas music! I have a large Christmas playlist on my iPhone and listen to my favorites (All I Want for Christmas is You sung by Mariah Carey is one of the best). I helped my parents decorate at their house this weekend, putting up the tree and decorating the whole house.

Decorating meant that I got to give my parents the cork garland! It was a huge hit and found a home on the fireplace. I LOVE the way it looks actually hung up!

After this inspiration, I hit up JoAnn’s for some more fabric to use for various gifts. I spent a few hours the other night cutting out LOTS of fabric, totally feeling like one of Santa’s elves.  While I was cutting out all of this…

…All I was singing in my head was “We are Santa’s Elves”, a total classic from the 1964 Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer movie. I watch it every year in addition to Love Actually and Elf, of course.

Expect a post of some of my finished work sometime soon!

~Love and Stitches,
