Why I am not Santa Claus

 A little sarcastic note to my customers and friends
and a big reminder for me for next Christmas

Even though I have many Reindeer friends, I am not Santa.
How do I know this? Let me count the ways...

1. I do not have 100+ little elves helping me make things.
        Everything I sell is made by just me. I do not wake up in the morning to find everything made and finished by my little elves that work for me. I wish.....

2. I really have no sleigh and 8 tiny reindeer!  I cannot deliver everything overnight.
        As much as I love the post office, I cannot guarantee that the item you order on  December 22nd is going to make it to you by Christmas.

3. Ho, Ho, ho....
       I have discovered I am not very jolly when overwhelmed with work.

4.  Cookies and milk...
           hmmm.... I forgot to go to the store, the milk went bad, and who has time to make the cookies????

5. Making his list, checking it twice....
         I really need to work on this one, I am not perfect, I have little sticky notes all over my studio..... no organization at all

Finding out who is naughty or nice
       This one I really wish I could do, some people came be so naughty, but the nice ones make up for it. I wish I just did not worry so over the unkind comments.

I am not coming to your town.
      Really, now who would make these if I did, sorry I missed your party, but the orders were coming in and I took on too much. I need to learn to say no.

North Pole
      I live in sunny Florida, and my Siberian Husky has never even seen snow. Something I have promised her one least she likes to go to the beach and swim.

Snow White Beard
        Blond hair, no beard, but the white is coming in rapidly....

"Christmas is not just a day, but a frame of mind" (Kris Kringle, Miracle on 34th street)
    This is the one which sustain me through out the year, and if I can put a smile on someones face this Christmas, then I have done my job. I may not be Santa, but I am one of his followers.
