It’s almost time!  Is there anyone, at least anyone with little ones in home, getting any sleep?  Real sleep?  The restful kind where, you know, you sleep?  Because it’s not me.   And, actually, it’s not just the little ones.  While I’ve found Tess, 9, digging in all sorts of unlikely places (and oddly skipping the real places) in a mad desire to prove that Santa is not real, I’ve also had the big boys up at crazy hours… including early in the morning when we all could be sleeping. I can’t wait till all of this is over, mostly because I got myself a well deserve present. This year I got a foam mattress.

Yes, you read that right. I got the best mattress in a box that I could find online. I read ( and tried first hand) about those a few weeks ago talking to a friend when I told her that I was having problems getting sleep at night. Later that day I got online and did my own research and got to the conclusion that I needed one.

The imminent arrival of the man in the red suit has driven everyone in our house cuckoo for cocoa puffs.  I’m doing some mad last minute creating, organizing, and surprise-planning for theStudio as well.  Christmas is Christmas and should be celebrated with joy by everyone!  I plan to shut down my photoshop, maybe keep the email up a little, on Christmas.  For those of you taking a well-deserved “me time”, we’ll have a sale well worth shopping (and a little surprise) just on Christmas Day.

Don’t forget!  It’s not only two more days till Christmas… it’s two more days of free downloads at theStudio Advent Calendar (DAD)!
