Merry Christmas, Happy Holydays!

Whatever you are celebrating, have celebrated, or will celebrate, I hope it's happy! Our holy day is Christmas, and it has been happy indeed. Life is very full and busy right now - mostly in a good way - and I've been behind on everything (including blogging, blogmenting, and responding to blogments), but I just wanted to stop by and wish you all happiness too. Thanks for reading, thanks for your kind comments throughout the year, thanks for the inspiration and encouragement you all give.

When things settle down, I'll have a few things to show and tell. But in the meantime, I just have one more thing to say. This was pretty much exactly the reaction I was going for when I spent the last few days sewing the Puppet Theater from Bend the Rules Sewing:

SO cute! The puppet theater is such a great idea! Love your pic as well. We tried to get a decent one for weeks, & I finally grabbed a camera after dinner and snapped a self-portrait of us while Hubby cracked jokes - its on my blog. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas too!!!
