It's in.

We got 'er on Mondee.

Jonny put the lights on 'er on Tuesdee.

On Tuesday, the Great Card Knock-Out '09 occurred. With Jonny by my side, we made 284 flat notecards with 284 accompanying envelopes, assembled 180 Christmas cards, and printed return addresses on 270 envelopes.

All of this left little time to take real photos and upload them and junk. Or decorate the tree, for that matter.

I just love this little one:

Here are some holiday paperwhites for you, that bloomed for me earlier this week:

Right before they fell over onto my kitchen table...

Oh well. It was fun while it lasted...

Since we've knocked out [most] of the card orders, I'm going to take a little break from etsy until Christmas is over, so I can do things like

- decorate the Christmas tree
- finish baking/participate in the Cookie Exchange
- finally make that stinkin' pumpkin butter
- finish decorating my house maybe?
- hold hands with Jonny
- listen to more Christmas records
- chill out

one of the Great Card Knock-Out '09 vinyl accompaniments:

Julie Andrews, Christmas Treasure [here], it's amazing

[Our other accompaniment was the Grizzlies-Cavs game. The Grizzlies pulled it out in overtime, hooray!]

I'll leave you with my BEAUTIFUL (albeit classic) live wreath, in all her glory:
