Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

The "Real" Santa Claus


My husband (a/k/a Santa) and my Granddaughter
2009

For the last 15 years or so my husband has been "Santa's helper".   He's pretty authentic, in looks and in spirit.  The beard is real and the suit doesn't require any extra padding!  He has watched kids grow up and calls them by name from year to year.   The kids know that he's the "real" Santa because he's missing part of his index finger.  It was lost in an unfortunate  accident... It was bitten off one day while feeding carrots to the reindeer {wink}!  His picture is on many a Christmas mantle in these parts!  He really enjoys it and has heard it all.  They ask for anything from the latest toy to a new brother or sister.  This year all one little girl wants is for her Mommy to be happy.

Like most of you, I've got a lot to do in the next week!  This will most likely be my last post of the year.  I'm looking forward to the calm (I hope!) after New Year.  There are some new things I'd like to learn and there are things around the house I've been putting off that really need done!  So...

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS
AND BEST WISHES FOR A
HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

Until next year...
Jana

Have a wonderful Christmas Jana and a safe, happy and healthy New Year. I'm also looking forward to a slightly quieter time in the new year with a bit of 'me' time thrown in for good measure.
