Yup, that's right, Santa's workshop has been located at DeluxeVille ever since Thanksgiving this year and your favorite elf, MaryDeluxe has been busy making baskets full of homemade Christmas! As one who has never cared much for "The Holidays", I've been having lots of fun this year researching things to make for my Christmas baskets. Lots of fun but also lots of work!
These are 1960's made in Japan children's Santa mugs that I snagged at a thrift store for 25 cents (they are in mint condition and still had the original store price tag on the bottom...2 for 50 cents!). They reminded me of Holt Howard winking Santa mugs...doncha think? The fellas aren't much help around the workshop but they sure do look cute as a button holding my chocolate covered pretzel rods!
I've been busy doing lots of things! I don't know how to knit or crochet yet, so I've been busy weaving Christmas scarves on my inkle loom instead. One of the perks of being an art teacher...I've got access to a lot of crafty things! I would tell you all more but I don't want to give away the surprise. Anybody else out there getting crafty for Christmas this year???
