18 days & Counting!

Holy Cow!! It's coming faster than I thought!! Just think, pretty soon it'll all be overwith and business or shopping will be back to normal. I can't wait!

It seems like it wasn't that long ago that me and my brother, Buz, were sitting by my bedroom window with our pillows propped up, insisting on staying awake till we see Santa go flying across the sky and delivering presents. Of course, to our dismay, it took longer than we could possibly stay awake and we never did see him. I'm sure there's lots of disappointed kids that never get to see Santa coming down the chimney...but then they forget all about it when they see all those presents Santa left them.

I came from a family of 6 kids and my dad as a carsalesman and didn't make alot of money. But every year we thought we were the luckiest kids alive! Wonder how our parents did it??

I used to envy my friends because they used to get wrapped gifts. Santa never wrapped ours and I wondered why. I always thought I was missing something. Until I grew up and realized just how expensive it would have been to purchase gift wrap too. Of course, I'd rather have them spend the $$ on gifts. Anyhow, since our gifts were never wrapped, they were never under the tree till Christmas morning. When all 5 of us went down the stairs OMG it looked like a toy store, with race car sets (4 of em) set up, a dolly in a highchair or stroller, several bikes, scooters, skates, sleds and lots of other stuff.

I was the only girl at that time (oldest) my sister didn't come along till I was 12, so I always knew anything girlie was mine!! That was a Christmas to behold!!That was just one Christmas I'm sharing with you.

Well before I close, let me tell you about a special character I just listed on ebay. He's one of my all time favorite characters of The Christmas Carol..Ebenezer Scrooge! Even if I must say, I have outdid myself with his design! Check him out and tell me whatcha think..here's a preview

I'm in love!!! You can see all of him by checking out his listing HERE

I've started him at the lowest bid possible as I have alot of hours invested in designing him. While you're looking, check out my other Ebay listings with low bids that would make great holiday gifts. I'm also listing new items on Etsy daily as well. To view them HERE

Let me know what you think about my newest listings! Can't wait to hear from you!
