I just realized there are just 22 more days until Christmas!
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN!?!
I’m spending my days sewing like the wind,
making pillows as fast as I can
for the galleries + shops that sell them for me.
Like this, for them:

Meanwhile, I steal a few moments at the bozoputer when I can,
as I’m trying to handle Christmas online.
Look at the old-fashioned gift stickers I ordered from an etsy seller,
People. I am mad about their slightly industrial, retro office style — aren’t you?
My plans include using these with some kraft paper gift wrap
+ lots of red + white baker’s twine:
Speaking of etsy + baker’s twine, I also ordered some small cookie bags:
I know! How adorable!
Maybe we’ll bake Snickerdoodles
from my 60’s 4-H cookbook.
Stay tuned! I could possibly take some photos + share the recipe!
You’ll thank me.

Back to shopping.
Here we have the swell banner-style return address labels
I ordered for our Christmas cards, from another etsy shop,
Aren’t they wonderful? They wrap from the front to the back of the envelope!
For our monogram, I asked for OK, which is kind of our ‘trademark’.
Get it? Ole Olson + Kay?

Last but not least, I ordered myself an early Christmas gift yesterday,
+ the UPS boy dropped it off at our porch just this afternoon!
Hey, look! More baker’s twine!
Of course, I wanted this candle because of its vintage apothecary style,
+ because they’re made in my beloved St. Louis.
The good news is that the scent I ordered — their new Fir-Grapefruit — is beyond divine!
In fact, the November ’13 issue of Lonny magazine named it their SEASON’S BEST SCENT!
You have heard of Lonny magazine, haven’t you?
It’s online. It’s free. It’s the BEST THING, EVER!
Go there now + thank me later.
