Last week, to escape the throngs of crazy crowds, my spousal equivalent and I snuck off to go junkin for a bit. This one booth at an antique mall had these little santas crammed all over the place.
Now, while they themselves may not be creepy, the idea of someone sitting there painting them kind of is. If you can't tell those are ROCKS, ladies and gentlemen. And for $5 a pop, you too can have a depressed little santamen ROCKIN around the Christmas tree, bwahahahaa!
Now, here's some other Christmas-y goodness. Check out Sara Jean's Holiday Sundae Supreme.
I invented this when I was like, 9 years old. Matt asks me to make it every year, usually late at night when we're highly stressed. Here's how you too can feed your inner 9 year old, or your outer 9 year old for those with wee ones.
+Get you some ice-cream. I used vanilla here, but you can substitute something more festive or favored.
+Pulverize some candy canes or mints (stick 'em in a plastic stack and whack away with a hammer, meat tenderizer, or rolling pin).
+Pour a cup of eggnog over that shit, unless you hate eggnog. Dark rum would be good too, for the grownups!
+Grab your favorite Christmas cookie and squish it. Sprinkle that on top too.
+Add chocolate syrup!
+TA-DA!!! Enjoy and relish in that warm, sugary feeling.
Now, I've also been crocheting my little fingers to nubs, so all next week I'll post pictures and patterns of the fruits of my labor. Here's Granny's cardinal; the pattern can be found here.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!!! YAY!
