so, i didn't get much sleep last night, that's okay, i'll cozy in sometime today. being a night owl most of my life does get me a bit mixed up, but there is always time to sleep and not enough time to create.
here is my first christmas book of the season called "merry" it's been created from premium double-sided cardstock papers by october afternoon. it's a line that actually came out last season but i do love the line.
this is listed in my etsy shop here okay, lets go to it...
