This song has been stuck in my head for days on end... ahhhhhh! Want to know why? Because I DID get a Hippopotamus for Christmast haha!
Be careful... he is one cranky Hippo! Meet my new puppet pal - "Slim"
Freaky right? Best Christmas present opening ever haha.
Here is a less scary picture:
My good friend knows how much I love puppets, espec. because she was subjected to the "Tiffany can give life to any puppet imaginable" show one day while we were out shopping - embarassing to say the least but I just can't hold it in lol. Soooo in honor of my insanity, she got me this cute little fella for Christmas - yay! I always wanted a Hippo for Christmas and now I have one :)
If you were looking for something crafty on this blog, I won't disappoint you today with just picture of Slim and I ;-)
Do you own the book Scandinavian Stitches? If not, I HIGHLY recommend it - it is one of my favorite craft books by far! I have not made time to work on the projects from this book but after seeing cute little houses popping up all over bloggyland, I decided to give one a try for a friend from church:
It's not perfect but I think it is a pretty good first try. These little things are so easy to make and addicting... I have a feeling I will have a whole village once I get back from vacation, hehe.
I have tons of Christmas projects to finish up but unfortunately I have a bad headcold and all I want to do is sleep. Between that lameness and cleaning and packing for Germany, I have a feeling no more crafting will be happening until I return. O well... tis the season for sneezing and sniffling and I know my family and friends will still love me even if their gifts are a little late.
Wishing you all a very very Merry Christmahanukwanzaaka and a Happy New Year!
