email me your mailing info  (mflaum @ comcast. net) and I’ll get it out to you after the wackiness of the holidays.

[re: my post title: if you don’t know what I’m talking about: re Festivus… it’s a Seinfeld thing and you should know it’s hilarious + part of Flaum culture due to fire department work schedules… minus the pole, and usually without airing of grievances but you never know!]

Honesty time:

I am going to flake out on days 24 & 25 of my crafting series. I’m owning that + choosing to do so. Even as ahead as I was, time caught up to me and I’ve been choosing more kid/family time than crafting time so really don’t have anything else that hasn’t been covered so far to share. As I promised to share only REAL projects in this series, and that I just caught myself trying to invent something quick to share to meet a random number of ideas/posts I’d set arbitrarily, well that doesn’t work!

I *AM* making the apron tutorial + sharing a new cookie recipe. But I’ll do so in January vs in the next 24hrs.

The holidays aren’t approaching, they’re here. We’re handing out baked goods, wrapping the last of the gifts, and greeting everyone with “happy holidays” or “Merry Christmas” wherever we go. I’m fully in that zone, and to be perfectly honest I’m needing to cut down my to-do list and removing “make 2 more crafty holiday posts in next 48hrs” from the list would free up a few hours AND let me breathe easier. Plus it might help let me relax more and twitch less. I’m trying very hard to do just that.

just keepin’ it honest…

So every year I take about a week (around Christmas) off from blogging, just wanted to let you know I’m checking out a few days earlier than planned and heading off-line. I’ll be back December 28th. I MISS my blogging when I take this break, but it’s good to take a breather. Plus I’ve been working on this new site design (what do you think so far?) and my eyeballs need a computer break!

Wishing you a Christmas (or any other holidays you celebrate) filled with joy, merriment, and lots of good times. Take photos, don’t count calories, and enjoy yourself however you can.
