the mail always gets through

Still having internet access problems due to some sort of cable corruption in my cul-de-sac. Santa won't be putting me on his "Nice" list if he happens to overhear me airing my opinion of modern technology and its instant obsolescence and the nuisance factor that nobody but some overworked unavailable specialist seems able to figure out what's wrong when something inevitably goes wrong. This is not the time of year to waste my too-little-time hoping for a momentary slice of cable connection. Phew!! Santa, cover your ears.

So happy to know the mail still works, rain, sleet, snow or shine! Those jaunty little delivery trucks have been bringing me lots of toys and goodies that I couldn't resist, and if I can stay connected long enough to upload some photos, I'll share. Since attending Silver Bella, it's been my treat to find several wonderful kits from other creatively crafty Bellas. All I need now for Christmas is some mellow personal time to follow their creative guidance and actually finish their kits.


Meanwhile, here's one little fellow who's trying to get me organized. Don't you love his sweet happy face? He works in the mail room in the corner of the front hall, collecting cards in his sack and reminding me that this is a two-way deal and I'd better do more than just open my desk and decoratively arrange my pen and stamps.

And yes, I had hoped to participate in Karla's "Holiday Home Party" that she is hosting on her blog today, but that is a bridge too far (it's taken several hours to successfully give my little mail elf his public due this morning). Please visit her blog for links to all those who are sharing their festive homes. And maybe I'll be one of those stragglers she mentions. Now I'm off to work!
