As soon as the first frost leaves the forest looking as though diamonds have been scattered about a wreath appears on the door of the lucky mushroom house. it's the home of Karl Kringle, second cousin once removed of Kris Kringle and master carver of snowflakes(oops the secret is out.....snowflake prototypes are created by gnome master carvers for Jack Frost)and Karl's are some of the most intricate. If you haven't guessed Christmas is in Karl's blood, he loves everything about the holidays. The stars he carves for the tops of Christmas are delightful all with its own touch of whimsy. If he had his way the holiday season would last year round with an endless supply of steaming hot cocoa and his most favorite cookie, spritz with red sugar sprinkles!
But alas the season passes, the holiday decorations will be put away only to wait for the most wonderful time of the year to return. And don't be surprised if come spring you see some very famous reindeer grazing in the meadow behind Karl's house or a exhausted elf napping in the hammock.
Kimberly, I hope you enjoy this wee peek into my imagination and the world of the wee folk. I've added some glitter to the polymer clay I've become friends with again.
Here's wishing you all a magical, delightful, wonderful holiday season! Full of laughter and cookies!!
