Schmelf has decided to “provide helpful hints and subtle prompts” to help me be a better person. So he sits on my shoulder and keeps whispering all these “motivational” little words to help me “choose the right.” Evidently just thinking “what would Bindi Irwin Do?” is not a high enough standard to aspire to despite the commercial success of her doll and underwear line.
I think he got the idea from Carlotta Ceawlin of Dreamscapes Art Gallery and her cute arrangement of children’s blocks into the word “Believe.” I contacted her right away to tell her she should file a complaint with LL, the Schmelf is clearly heading towards a life of copybotting.
I am in love with the textures (yes I was actually kissing the wall – hey some of us get our love life where we can – stop judging or I will tell the Schmelf to put a black mark next to YOUR name) from Reghan Straaf of PixelCat. I realize they are probably meant for talented people who make clothes and furniture and such but I love them as background colours for my pics – beautiful rich jewel tones! I was thinking maybe I could stick the Schmelf on it and he might disappear.
Maeve Mortlock whom I adore, even though she took out the restraining order against me, has provided such a pretty delicate silver Christmas set for your jewellery box. It is nice to have some jewellery to be able to wear with some of the more casual things you wear for the season. Kind of hard to carry of dripping diamonds in your flannel nightgown but hey … if you want to go for it – do. I am not judging. (I just wrote that for the Schmelf to read and be impressed – I actually do judge you, harshly.)
Bela Tolsen from *TuttiFrutti* designed these jeans and she gives you two pair in her pack – in case you have a twin or a friend or an annoying sister who invites her lame friends home from college because they have nowhere to go for Christmas and then your mom says, “Oh YOU have so many presents Blissy, why don’t you share one of your gifts so your lame
sister’s friend has at least something to open.” This is one of the reasons I think women make the decision to either be hugely overweight or incredibly skinny .. . so no-one else can fit their clothes and they don’t have to share. I mean we women CHOOSE to be the size we are right? We get that option and therefore we all are really happy and empowered with our bodies??? Ok Schmelf says I should lose the bitterness, “Santa doesn’t like bitter girls.”
Delinda Abott of Lindy has also provided 2 pairs of shoes in her gift this year. Same thing. It is a great idea but I would definitely hide one right away in case a miracle happens and your sister has 2 friends willing to follow her home.
And finally Datrip Blackbart of Legal Insanity (I think I wanna marry him – I think he would sooo get me) has come up with this awesome inkblob/cloud-like Sweater/Shirt. It can provide hours of fun on cold winter nights with either the family or your date, depending on whether hands are allowed to explore. What do you see? I see a side view of a Snowman who had a terrible accident involving a skier who poked him in the face with one of his poles and it knocked him over on his butt and he almost had a heart attack because his heart turned sideways.
