This picture makes me think of Hansel and Gretel making their way through the forest. Looking into those woods I’m certain there is a witch with a gingerbread house. And you can see the stump where the children’s woodcutter father has chopped down a tree.
Ah, but there is another fairytale happening. I can glimpse Christmas and the desire to create a handmade Christmas. Just there in the forest of the internet. It is enticing me with tutorials and ideas and inspiration. Is it drawing you in as well? Come closer my dear, break off a piece from one of those delicious handmade ornaments. Please try a sampling of beautiful gift wrapping. Can you smell the sweet aroma of holiday decorating? Go on, you know you want some! Don’t forget those sugar spun Christmas cards.
College boy let me know how disappointed he was that I hadn’t done any Halloween decorating, so I guess I better get my holiday on. Note to self, beware the witch that might emerge under the stress of eating that gingerbread house…otherwise there goes that fairytale ending.
p.s. This is a very accurate, but humorous picture of what it’s like to be depressed. And also since I seem to frequently push the curse word envelope it contains some of that too. Seems appropriate to link after my post about warning signs. Thanks Sara for the link – it made my day! : )
