Such a handsome fella!! My Santa's are a bit on the whimsical side and well...that's just because each one has a bit of me inside. I LOVE being a whimsy!!
I worked on some of the props for this piece too. Two books....oh yes....the naughty and nice books. One I did as an open book. Oops...elf just had to get a foot in the photo I see..hehe!!
The other as a closed book. Even made tiny bookmarkers to go with them. Santa's going to be busy sitting in his chair going through these books. Make sure you remind your wee ones that "Santa is always watching".
There is also a list of the names that need to go into the book this year but before that can happen one of Santa's elves tells him some stories of the children on the list. Some funny, some kind and some where that child will "DEFINITELY" be receiving a stocking full of coal.
I'm also working on the little story telling elf today. He has been wrapped with his wool yarn underclothes over his wire armature. Just finished one of his tiny felt elf shoes and as soon as I finish writing this then I will do the other one. (he is standing to the right of me just a tapping his foot...I think he is a bit impatient)
See now he has his hands up and is hollering at me to hurry up. Silly elf!! I guess I should go and help him out. I mean...I sure wouldn't want to be standing around in my underclothes and one shoe on either.
I have a favor to ask of YOU....it's not a hard one....please put me in your thoughts and/or prayers for this afternoon. I am
Until next time............HUGS,
