Jolly Old Elves, Fairy Godmothers, and dear friends.

I'm burning the midnight oil tonight.  It's my own fault.  I decided to try to clean my back room and came across a box of stuff from my college days.  I did my best to purge, but the back room is still a mess and I didn't get a heck of a lot of framing done.


I saw Santa twice before I started work this morning.  Who knew he drives a Ford?   It's a little early, yet.  Maybe he's just checking up on me?


While I was purging the back room, I found an employee evaluation from one of my first bosses and let's just say it was neither nice nor was it constructive.  It probably played a major role in why I own my own business and I try to treat my employees with kindness and compassion.  I am surrounded by love and laughter every day and that one poor evaluation is partly to blame.  Thank you Ms. Petke, wherever you are.  I hope the world has been kind to you.

Here are some more delicious pieces from the recently completed file.
I'm off to paint some slate snowmen before I go home.  I don't want today to be totally unproductive.
