Check in on Candy Claus’s Workshop

Between watching the news about the horrors of Sandy Hook Elementary School, reading FB post after FB post of people shocked and saddened and angered by the events, I’ve lost some Christmas spirit. At some point yesterday I walked away from the computer and got some dyeing done and finished grading my last set of final exams. And I’m going to keep on working in my Christmas workshop, because the last thing we need is to let horrible people take away our ability to celebrate joy. (But oh, those parents, oh my GOD, so sad…….)


Let’s take a look and see what I’ve still got to accomplish:
