If you know me, you know at this time of the year I turn into a total scrooge.
Yep, I'm not a fan of Xmas, not a fan in the least.
Every year around this time, as the stores, radios and really the whole city start to Christmatize everything, I just wanna plug my ears and hide.
It's just a warning of things to come really.
"Just hear those sleigh bells ringing"..... Crowds of angry shoppers.
"Siiiiilent Night, Hooooooly Night"....Masses of rude retail workers.
"Up on the housetop"....Terrible cases of the "I wants" from people you love.
"With his corn cob pipe"....Shopping stress trying to find the one thing the kid absolutely wants and no one has in stock.
Yep, that's Xmas to me.
My most hated holiday.
I usually procrastinate on everything Xmas, the cards, the shopping, the wrapping, the baking...it all waits til the last minute.
And I don't dare take out anything Christmassy either until I hear the inevitable, "Are we ever gonna put up a tree this year?"
But I saw the little square of plaid and couldn't resist putting this ONE little card together.
I love the star on this card so much, it may be featured on this year's card.
It is layered with a tiny little star on top and a little twine right on top.
(thanks Michele for making me pull that old thing outta my ebay pile!)
Those cork letters are from the Target $1 spot.
Now I know I am in the minority about this whole holiday thing.
I do realize that.
And I am sure that all you strong holiday supporters (greta) are cursing me out right now and hitting unsubscribe faster than cockroaches when the light comes on...
But I'm just speaking the truth about me.
What I like.
Or in this case dislike.
And letting everyone know upfront that I am sure this is not the last of the anti-Xmas posts for the season.
And there won't be as many holiday themed projects as you might expect.
