Santa’s Plate

I have to confess here and now that this Santa’s plate is a blatant and unabashed copy of one I saw when Googling.  I wanted to make my friend’s adopted son Jacob a special plate to leave out on Christmas Eve for their first Christmas together ….. I had the plate, the Sharpie pens ….. but no idea what I was going to do ……… and as I was soooo tired and time was of the element I copied the plate that was the easiest to do and that didn’t mention “cookies”!
Santa's PlateI used Sharpies permanent pens, I don’t think they will be that  hard wearing and wouldn’t dare put the plate in the dishwasher, but for something that is only used once a year …. with careful washing it should last for the next couple of years.

…… things happened from September onwards that conspired to not leave me enough time to do all the Christmassy things I had planned/hoped to do …….
sleepy bear Christmas card….. so in the coming year I am going to take a leaf out of Cheryl W’s book who left this comment the other day ……..
“I have vowed to start making my 2014 cards and tags in January - I'm thinking 4 or 5 of each per month would be such a help come next December. I wonder if I can stick to such an audacious resolution!”
And to add to this plan, instead of holding the ideas back until the end part of the year I am going to post them as and when, throughout the year ……. well that’s the theory!!!!
Again,  “Thank You” for all the lovely cards, you’ve put me to shame!
