One Last Stocking Hurrah

*****

The supposed rush of the holiday shopping season has come and gone.  And, all of the stockings were well picked over.  But, as you make your way over trails of debris from crazy careless shoppers, ignoring the flickering fluorescent lights and droning Muzak, you find a surprisingly colorful selection of stockings still on their hooks, next to what’s left of the wreaths and Christmas lights.

Unfortunately, this store isn’t putting anything on clearance for another few weeks.  But, some of these are too good to pass up.  I know which ones I’d get.

And some fitting, fun women’s boots.  [The first of more to come (though not the first off the desk).]

Which version/button feature do you prefer?

Stocking Up on Holiday Art

*****

While I am busy in my elfin workshop with stocking/boot designs galore, I would also like to feature some of the general holiday art to leave my desk.  If you’re good kids, you’ll see more and find some in the Chat Cafe space all winter long.

Stuffed With Creativity; Stocking Madness

*****

It’s official.  Another Thanksgiving is in the leftover pile.  And, the (winter) holiday season is upon us.  Last year, I was hung up on sweaters and hearts.  This year I’m mad about STOCKINGS!

Dec. 6th is just around the corner.  And, that means it will soon be time to hang your stockings by someplace other than too close to any fire.  St. Nicholas brings all the good kids fun stuff and coal (or other surprises) to the naughty.

In that spirit, I have been busily slaving away at some primitive stocking designs with a splash of winter wit.  [It started with a nephew and I whipping up paper versions for a class project/family cards.]  Check these out.  And, check back as more may crop up.

This, in turn, spawned a whole women’s boot design craze.  But, I’ll save that for another post.  🙂
