Sew enjoy your holiday, create memories!
There will be no guest bloggers, but there will be a video each day,
something to view and certainly put you in the mood

  115. Just curious what special meaning you find in Barbra's song. My brother and I enjoyed the heck out of her "Jingle Bells?" song when we were kids. We'd play it on 45rpm so she sounded like a chipmunk (since it's already so fast). We'd laugh ourselves silly!
