Actually I have one decision which, while I’m thinking Christmas, is worth putting down in writing. In a word: Mistletoe. That’ll be the theme of next Christmas.

I realized a little too late for Christmas 2012 that I like the simplicity and the symbolism of mistletoe which could lead to all kinds of plays on the word “kisses” like the Bacio (meaning “kiss”) from Perugina.
The colors are intriguing – soft deep grey-green oval leaves with frosty berries. The pillow below from The Daily Pincushion would be an ideal color scheme for me.
Seed pearls, kissing balls, handmade felt, candy, kisses — I’m on the trail for the ensuing year. MISTLETOE! Yea.
Do you keep an idea journal? Do you act on it?
Sidebar: I took the Downton Abbey “Which character are you?” quiz. That’s right, I’m Violet, Dowager Countess.
Technology and other tedious obstacles don’t concern
you me– you are I am best suited for the Dowager Countess’ job, and as such, you I have an empire to run. Through brutal honesty, tough love, and stealthy intervention, you I protect those in your my charge…whether they want it or not. With high standards and an iron rule, you I have a long career of leadership ahead of you me. To ensure its success, however, consider the fate of the mighty dinosaurs, and allow for adaptation. Learn all about the Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet.
I could have told you this without the quiz.
