Merry and Bright

IMG_7400Christmas was very merry and bright Chez Play!

We followed all of our usual traditions with only a little bit of last minute shopping. Things were a bit hairy for a week when we were down to one car. Thanks to the USPS pick-up service, I was able to get orders out in their usual timely fashion. And we were able to get my husband’s car sorted out in time for me to be able reclaim the van and get his stocking stuffers. It’s difficult to fill one of those things for a person who doesn’t like candy and has expensive hobbies. I was quite pleased to find mini cans of WD-40. He almost ended up with fast-food-themed boxer shorts.

Our Christmas highlights:

Cookie baking and decorating is one of my favorite parts of Christmas. The 8yo thought the blank angel cookies looked more like a squid. He has the best ideas.

I started a pair of two-at-a-time socks with my Nerd Girl Yarns Bounce and Stomp from the Tripping Yarn Balls Come as You Are Club. This one was inspired by Epic by Faith No More. It’s pretty darned epic!

And I gave myself this awesome tshirt from Busted Tees. I hope you all had a chance to hang out with people you love and enjoy the day! It’s back to the grind today. The After Christmas Sale is in full swing and it looks like I’m going to have quite a few big orders to pack and ship. All Maki and fingering weight yarns are 15% off so this is a great time to stock up! Time to get the dye pots going and update the site with my 2014 vending schedule. I’m looking forward to another busy year of yarning. Happy New Year, PALers!
