1.) I played up the 2012 aspect this year, so the first track of this CD couldn’t have been any other song.
2.) Did you notice the Aztec calendar in the background behind Santa?
3.) Of COURSE the world’s not going to end on December 21st. If it does, Santa can’t get here!
4.) If you’d like to see more of Carol’s gorgeous artwork, please visit her website here (you can order prints, notecards, and other exciting things!).
5.) I had SO many disagreements over postage with the US Post Office this year (the cost of mailing one card ranged from $0.65 to over $2.00, depending on the clerk), this is probably going to be the last year I make CDs. I’ll have to think of something else new & fun for next year!

Happy holidays, everyone! xox

Santa is my Guy

The Waterworld Mermaids have a special feature we call “Guy Day.” This month for Guy Day I’m interviewing the one…the only…SANTA CLAUS.

Please stop by and tell the jolly old man what you’d like in your stocking!

Happy Solstice!

Next to Halloween and Guy Fawkes Day (and Dragon*Con), this is my favorite night of the year.

Because after tonight, THE DAYS START GETTING LONGER.

I’ve written up a little essay about it over at the Waterworld Mermaids, click here to go check it out. Comments over there are encouraged.  (I’m shutting these off.)

Light a candle for me — I hope you all have a very safe and festive Yule!
