To the Head Elf

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. –Laura Ingalls Wilder

Dear Santa,

It is only 39 days 'til Christmas. I'm a little alarmed by its rapid advance. I hope you're taking it all in stide, though. After all, you are The Man with The List. I thought I'd better get a letter out before too much more time passes, just in case you're not sure what to get me. The Little Bugs will be sending theirs along separately. I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving, but I decided that I didn't want to risk leaving you with too much to do at the last minute. I've been a very good girl this year. I make sure my family has clean socks and undies at all times, I cook dinner {almost} every night {and we hardly ever have Cheeseburger Macaroni or anything else from a box}, I make sure the Little Bugs get their homework done each day and eat vegetables on a regular basis {because they're good for you even though they mostly taste yucky} and I've been working on not procrastinating. I still need a little work on that, but overall, I think I've improved. So if I made the nice list, I'd love to find any of the following under my tree on Christmas morning.

3½" Drunkard's Path AccuQuilt Die Cut {I aleady have the 7" Drunkard's Path and love it, but I need the smaller one so I can use Michelle's totally awesome scrappy layout.}
2" Square AccuQuilt Die Cut and 5" x 10" Cutting Mat
Any of the following pieces of China to go with my newly acquired set {Replacements.com is a great place to look}:
—Gravy Boat with Attached Underplate {eBay's got a great deal on one}
—Lugged Cereal Bowl {to replace a missing one}
—Round Covered Vegetable Bowl
—Round Vegetable Bowl {eBay's got a great deal on one}

I've given you lots of options to choose from and even did a little shopping around and price comparison. Any one of these items would be great. I kind of listed them in order of preference {within each category}, but use your best judgement. I hope you get through your list. In the meantime, I'll be plugging away at mine. I've got some great ideas for gifts to make this year.

I guess I should start thinking about what I want so when people ask I dont say "I dunno-whatever".

Ive tried to be good this year - and havent always been successful.Even Father Christmas makes allowances though surely? Hope you get all the things on your list!

Hope you get what's on your list. I hadn't thought about Santa checking the blogs for lists, but it makes sense, doesn't it? With the internet to help, he might even get home early on Christmas Day.
