At Last, A Blog Post (and a giveaway!)

Due to new works in the studio... blogging/tweeting/facebooking has pretty much fallen apart. You know how it is!

I’ve requested that Franny and Lou form a blue-ribbon panel to investigate my drop in blogging productivity. They set to work right away. Lou tried to find a reason buried under this big pile of bubble wrap:
He was sure there was something there, but he just couldn't put his paws on it. Franny was still suspicious and stared me down a few times trying to get me to talk. It almost worked (just look at those eyes!).
They kept looking around in every corner. Nothing in this one either...
They did spot a fresh coat of paint in my studio space...
...and this cute little tree...
...but Franny and Lou said the rest of their findings won’t be forthcoming until hibernation season is over — following groundhog day. Silly kitties!
Luckily, our cousin in Ireland’s dog has offered to fill in
as the provisional authority. He’s barked some orders at me to thank you all for sticking with me through this quiet time and insisted that i spread some holiday cheer by randomly selecting two people to win a dessert role or charm pack of Honey Honey. Please leave a comment that includes your favorite winter holiday story, movie or tv special. My favorite story would have to be The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. I loved those beautiful, ethereal illustrations. But then again, i also loved the tv show Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town — the one with the winter warlock and scarfed penguin! Anyway, please have your entries in by midnight this Friday, December 14th and winners will be announced on Saturday morning.
