A Christmas State of Mind

Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.    –Mary Ellen Chase

A Christmas State of Mind

I am enjoying the holidays a lot this year. I made a crapload of cookies (that are now in the freezer). I tied special ribbons all over the tree. I remodeled my family room and sewed a special holiday runner for my mantel. I went to a cocktail party last night and noshed on the holiday special treat in these parts: raw beef and onions. And I have been knitting like mad to get some gifts done too. So… I kind of dressed up elfishly to feel it in my heart.

I started with Shai Delacroix’s boat-neck top, a casual mesh piece with a great texture change HUD that allows a variety of looks, all with stripes. I wore red, of course, and matched my socks (cuz matching socks with shirt is very festive). And I put on Isabelle Requiem’s new winter shorts for a little elfish fun. Merry winter boots with pompoms from Anessa Stine make the look complete.

My face is speckled with stars from Airedine Poe’s darling gift for the KittyCats Advent Calendar. In fact, I have two more gifts in this blog from the Calendar—first, my silly darling poses from Gidge Uriza and if you look at my nails, some awesome candy striped nails from Giela Delpaso, who has been giving in holiday spirit for both this and the Peace on Earth hunt. She offered TWO sets for the KittyCats Advent Calendar. Go give Giela some of your linden by buying one of her regular nail sets—she deserves some thanks.

PeachieMuah has come out with a new doll skin, which I wore with elven glee and Isabelle Requiem’s moody eyes have a certain twinkle. I tied my hand up with a bow with Cherella Capra’s gacha ring (one of many) that she is offering at the Christmas Market Event, that is still open. Of course, M4ri1yn Magic’s cute hair with eensy ponytails makes the look—how much more festive can I get?
