How to say, "I give a shit about you" this Christmas.

Recently, my friend Heather was having a birthday.  I really wanted to give her a present that sent the message, "Hey friend.  You're someone I give a shit about," but, I didn't have a lot of time to make her something handmade-- which is my usual go-to way of telling someone they are important to me.

Luckily,  last winter, I worked out a pattern for a warm winter hat that knits up in just a few hours.  All it took was one nap time, and this hand-knitted token of my affection was cranked out and ready for the snow.

When Heather opened it, I could tell she really knew how much I gave a shit about her. I'm posting it here for you all, so that you too can knit up quick, cute, gifts-- hopefully in time for Christmas.

I also created this absolutely amazing Christmas card, which Sean quickly refused to send out. I guess we all know how ungrateful Sean really is to me for making him and Millie such incredible STAR WARS themed halloween costumes. 

I am still in disbelief that Sean has vetoed this card.

I hope you all have a really good Christmas (Endor happy new year!), and that you get to spend your holiday with people you totally, absolutely, give 100% of a shit about!
