{the post in which I type a lot}

This photo may look like a normal photo to you. But it's not. Yes, you can see our Gussy stockings. Yes, you can see our Gap look-alike Christmas tree. But most of you don't know is what else is in this photo.

Tee hehe.

Would you like to see a little close-up of what I'm talking about?!?!

Here you go {click photo to enlarge}:

See our Little Drummer Boy ornament?! Do you see that 'lil piece of wood standing short and proud?! Oh yes. This is for real everyone.

A few weeks ago, shortly after we put up our Christmas tree, I was sitting on the couch and noticed our Little Drummer Boy ornament was horribly twisted. I took him off the tree, pulled the strings so he unwound, and low and behold his front-side graced me with its presence.

It appears that somewhere along the road of passing-down-the-ornaments, Mr. Little Drummer Boy has lost his drum.

Oh, dangit, I'm sure he is just mortified.
But I'm laughing, and I hope you are, too :)


I've got a few new blog sponsors:
  • Jessica with Jecka {awesome knit ear flat headbands, you must click her link!};
  • Maria with Curly Birdie {for those of you that have/know of little ones}; and
  • Emily with Fern & Flora Designs {super SUPER adorable headbands}.

Christmas is nearing -- it's not too late to order from their shop and include a photo to the recipient of their gift!


Like I mentioned yesterday, I haven't been sewing and it's practically driving me nuts. However! I have made a shopping list of supplies for when we return, I've ordered more zippers online, and I'm working on about 100 Gussy tags.

Yes, these babies that effortlessly flow down like they are... OK, I'll stop. Sorry! hah!

I've only experienced 328,753 times this week that with owning a business the work never really stops. My goodness, sometimes I can't even take a moment for myself without my iPhone saying DING! GUSSY YOU HAVE AN EMAIL! DING! GUSSY, SOMEONE WANTS TO TALK TO YOU.

And yes, I can turn my phone off. But then our mom's can't call us to see how we're doing. I think more importantly I need to turn my brain off sometimes. Just the Gussy-sewing part of it, not the Gussy-talking part of it.
{Sorry Zack!}

But I loooooove doing Gussy, dings and all :)


I was at Target yesterday and noticed there is Valentine's Day products out already!!! Yeow. Looks like Target has Gussy beat on the whole lets-be-over-productive-this-year-OK?

Say it with me now: OOOOOH-kay!

PS. That was a little hint as to what I'll have stocked in my shop early January


Gussy gift certificates -- buy one now and shop later! The shop is open now, but nothing will ship until Tuesday, January 4 {Merry Christmas to me!} Blog sponsorships are open again on the 1st. If you're interested in advertising and increasing shop traffic + sales, contact me!


Happy Monday! :)

Your poor drummer boy! You should see the nativity set at our church--I didn't even out out the sheperds/wise men. Joseph is missing a hand, the shepherd's harp broke off with his hand still attached, and wise men's gifts are missing...I think Mary and Jesus are the only ones unscathed! Goodness. ;)

Love my new Gussy! It's just great. Thanks, Maggie!
