'tis the Season

 I have a blog update or two in me but, for the moment, I'm buried in beads, piles and piles of beads, and internets (and hobbies) time is drastically reduced.

Every morning a big new pile to clean and string. 
(They're so happy looking in a big pile, aren't they???)

I know people always say they would love to work from home and, while it is pretty awesome most of the time, other times you look up and realize you've been so busy that you haven't left the house in 8 days. And then it feels less like a blessing and more like house arrest. LOL (Oh Black Friday, if I had know then you were going to be my last day of freedom I would have lived it up more!!) 

Hoping to be free on 'parole' by Tuesday. Or Wednesday. 
(Please god, by Wednesday. *twitch* GETTING STIR CRAZY NOW.)
I usually take the last two weeks of December off but I'm thinking I might be 'eligible' for three weeks this year. Need to consult with my employer (me) about that! ;)

Hunh. My first comment didn't post.

Anyway, the sheepies with santa hats are adorable.

And take the 3 weeks! You know you'll have so many other projects you want to do it'll be like working anyway. :)

And danggit. I need a polar bear cub and a squirrel but I'm trying SO hard not to buy presents for myself.

Wow, you have been working hard! Me thinks you deserve to take 3 weeks off, after all, your not going to sac yourself for going MIA for a few weeks :-)

Here's hoping you manage to 'escape' the confines of home soon!

Hope your boss gives you time off :) Your work is so cheery. I love the Santas and I like those red ones that almost look "fuzzy". They all are great.

I think there is a downside to every upside!

On the other hand your work is spectacular!!!
