The never-ending holidays...

My beloved etsy street team - PlushTeam - has been having it's annual Secret Santa Plush Swap, and I received my nifty neato gift yesterday. Hooray!

Since us plush makers are uber busy during the holiday season, we chose to host our swap after Christmas to give us a chance to breathe a little. Plus who doesn't look forward to getting a gift after all the festivities are over? Exactly. As it turns out, Christmas is traditionally celebrated on January 7th (today!), and so I say to you 'S Rozhdestvom! I don't know what it means, but I'm told that what they say to each other over there today. I'm sure it's something delightful.

Silly me, I thought it would be a good idea to introduce our darling newcomers, sent by the fantastic LittleCritters00, to the latest batch of knucklebiters. I could not have been more wrong! Thinking they would play nicely, I turned my back for just a second, and when I returned orange nubby knucklebiter was SNACKING on little red fuzzy dude! Oh, the HORROR.

Well, I reprimanded nubby orange knucklebiter, explaining we do NOT eat our new friends, and he has since been sent to live with a new family in Pennsylvania. I wish them luck!

Meanwhile, my gift to my Secret Santa Recipient is en route, I think she'll probably receive it today. I am soooo excited! Here's a sneak peak:
