Closed for business

I have closed requests for Solstihanukwanzamas-eid cards. I'll be sending out more holiday cards that are manufactured, but only a select few will get the hand-made Solstihanukwanzamas-eid cards. I must warn you, they look pretty juvenile, but they have been fun to work on. I hope to have at least half of them done this weekend. Keep an eye on your mailboxes folks! :D

Last call for Solstihanukwanzamas-eid

While decorating my heathen tree last Sunday, I got to thinking about the festive time that is Solstihanukwanzamas-eid. There are variations on the spelling and pronunciation, but really the spirit is all the same; enjoy the winter holiday and the company of good friends. Sadly, I don't know if Solstihanukwanzamas-eid will catch on. Even so, it is still in its infancy and I am making steps to beef it up a little bit.

Since we started erecting our heathen tree several years ago, Matthew and I decorated it with ornaments of Batman. Now, what better a festive figure than Batman? He rewards the nice and punishes the naughty, right? But why stop there? Why not include many festive figures into our holiday? Of course, the message is still the same. If you're nice, you get something good! If you're bad, however, bad things happen to you.

Here is our list so far: If you're good, Batman gives you a grappling hook delivered in his festive batmobile. If you're bad, Batman gives you rabies. :( If you're good, Willy Wonka gives you ever-lasting gobstobers! If you're bad, Jesus takes away your cellphone. :( If you're good a unicorn gives you magical chocolate rainbows! If you're bad, Zool jumps out of your refrigerator and gnaws off your face. :( If you're good zombies eat your brains! If you're bad, zombies eat your brains? :( Sorry, zombies can't tell the difference between good and bad. Tough luck kids!

I'm still thinking about the traditional Solstihanukwanzamas-eid feast. More on that later. Until then, what would you add to Solstihanukwanzamas-eid?

Oh and this is your last call for a Solstihanukwanzamas-eid card! Email or message me your address and I get one in the mail to you.

Happy Solstihanukwanzamas-eid everyone!

Sasquatch hands

I am very positive people think I am crazy. I am ok with that though. Today it was 3 degrees (Fahrenheit) and I trudged the 24 minute walk to work in a skirt. But I was not cold thanks to my rabbit hat and my Sasquatch hands. Since my beaver mittens are so fuzzy and huge, I feel like I have sasquatch hands while wearing them. I made the decree that they shall hence forth be referred to as sasquatch hands. This makes me happy!

Yes, I know I look all sorts of ridiculous wearing sasquatch hands. It doesn't help that I pare them with bog boots. But you know what, I am warm! Hot even! One of these days I'll have to get a picture of me in my get-up. For now, enjoy an almost year-old picture of my sasquatch hands.
