All I want for Christmas

My sister asked me last night what I want for Christmas. She said "Mom has no idea". I thought, "What are you talking about? I'm easy! Just look at my wishlist...

And then I looked at my wishlist. Hmm. There's not really anything on there. So I started thinking, and looking, and that was when I realized -- I have everything I need.

Now that's a scary thought. I mean sure, I always want more earrings, and more shoes - because really, what femme girl DOESN'T want more earrings or more shoes? But when I look at my life, for the first time in years - YEARS, people!! - I actually have enough money to cover my needs. This is a new thing for me. It's kind of exciting. And scary.

So the only thing I really want is more hours in the day. I'm working on some fun, exciting stuff, people!!!

I did finally finish some of these, and they are now for sale in my etsy shop.

And here are some works-in-progress:

I have miles to go on this one.

And then there's him. The red was just going to be a base color, but I really like it. I think he just needs some shadowing and a finish coat.

I also have a box half-full of overdue gifts for my family, and I must finish the four things that still need to go into that box so I can ship it -- because it has to be there before Sunday!!!

Here's a look at that pile:

The worst thing is that the person who reminds me to eat and sleep when I get like this is out of town for a week. Which means that the kitchen is a disaster and I'm out of food. So anyone who wants to come clean my house and cook me healthy, delicious meals, is welcome. I'll pay you in yarn! (must. destash.)

So... what do you want for Christmas?
