Dear Santa Claus,
I've learned my lesson. I'm reformed. Really.
Looking back on last year's Christmas list, I can see how asking for a pool boy and a sound proof craft room and a nannie might have been slightly greedy; or ambitious, however you prefer to look at it.
I am most grateful that you didn't stuff my stocking with "dirty sticks and fire rocks" (sticks and coal), as Natalie says. I thought I would humbly send you this year's Christmas list so that your elves will have time to work on things.
1. Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts
2. Eclipse on DVD
Fluff, and staring at hunky vampires and werewolves most certainly counts as fluff. Don't judge me.
3. Gift Card to my Nirvana, Hobby Lobby.
To aid future crafty endeavors.
4. The Perfect Pair of Flat Brown Boots
5. A Nikon DSLR Camera
6. Emily Post's Etiquette
7. Anything from Charming Charlie.
I do love it so.
That about wraps it up, Santa. I hope you'll carefully consider my list. I don't feel that I deserve to be on the naughty list, especially after cleaning up barf this week. (But maybe you can forget about how I messed up T's favorite blanket in the washing machine and didn't tell him about it yet?)
Come back tomorrow to link up your best post of the week to Weekend Bloggy Reading. Please be sure to link back to me or include my party button in your post.
(Blogging Question: Is anyone else experiencing trouble with Feedburner? What was originally an occasional problem has escalated into a weekly occurrence that lasts several days. My subscriber numbers yo-yo between 1100+ and go down to 200 or so. My stats have dipped this week and I can't help but wonder if it's because several hundred readers probably have no idea I've posted. This is becoming increasingly frustrating...)
