So, I am not going to say bah humbug... cause I love Christmas. I love Christmas so much it took me till the age of 9 or something to realize that there was no Santa (and that was just because my dad forgot to throw away packing of toys my mom set up and they got into an argument about it.) Any way, what I am going to say is what is with all the seasonal products?
Okay, admittedly everything I am seeing on my blog roll is awesome. I love the little ornaments and mangers scenes... I want ALL OF IT - going back to my Christmas craziness and how much I love it.. but seriously, it is too much stuff. I know as a responsible store owner, I should start pumping out the Christmas stuff too, but I can't bring myself to do it.
I have made a few ornaments... but they are zombie apocalypse tree ornaments. Work in progress, need more braiiiins:
And a few other sets as well, but something cannot bring me to the spirit of Christmas crafting. In fact, every time I see another picture of a random Santaball it pushes me further away from crafting any of the stuff... It does make me want to annoy my husband and take out the tree early though.
Conclusion: Like many things in life, maybe Christmas crafting is not about you (the maker) but about the cheer you bring to others when they see your red/green interposition! Yay, Kodak moment!
Maybe hearing about scaring stories will make me more in the Christmas-crafting mood. So:
Question: When did you first hear there was no Santa/Sinterklaas? How old were you and any funny stories?
