I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six.
Mother took me to see him in a department store
and he asked for my autograph.

Well, I don't know about you, but I for one, still believe in Santa Claus.
I even saw a package he had delivered to the house yesterday with my name on it. Apparently, he's planning ahead to spare the reindeer on Christmas eve.
I told Santa I really just wanted crafting toys this Christmas. He told me his elves didn't know the first thing about paper craft toys. So, he asked me to go online, fill up a shopping cart at one of my favorite shops, and then send him the link to the shopping cart. He said he'd pick and choose from the things in my shopping cart so I could still be surprised.
So I did. I even filled in a special promotion code so Santa could get a good deal.
Apparently I was on Santa's "Nice List," because the jolly man sent off my order.
Then, he changed my password on the site so I wouldn't be able to see the pending order and its status. And then, he got really maniacal. He changed the e-mail address I previously assigned to the site so I couldn't ask for a password reset.
Of course, you know why I know all this. Because I tried to steal a peek at the order!
That Santa is one sneaky dude!
That adorable stamp is from Eat Cake Graphics, called Amanda Saw Santa Claus. Freakin' cute, right? Amanda and her bear are colored with Copic Markers. Her pajamas are paper pieced from Cosmo Cricket paper, and her cheeks are blushed with Sampin' Up! Stampin Pastels.
Here's the rest of the recipe.
