Christmas for procrastinators

Yes, I know Christmas was a few days ago (or a week...), but hey, when you're visiting relatives and stuffing your face every waking moment, there's hardly time to blog, is there?  So here are some pictures of our Snarky cookie party:

Our lovely, non-traditional, Incense Cedar tree, that we chopped down ourselves, with help from fellow Snarks Cece and Bryon.  As you can see, it has several of the tiny yarn animals adorning it, the latest of which is our Craft of the Week, the alcoholic octopus.

  Apparently, there's this tradition for fans of the Detroit Red Wings to toss octopi onto the ice during games (don't ask me, I don't know why).  Since a relative of one of the Crafty Snarks is a Red Wings fan, I gave him the drunken octopus for Christmas, so he no longer adorns our lovely abode.  However, I better not see him being tossed into any hockey rinks, because that sucker took me hours of painstaking time to craft.

Here are some Snarks Crafting Christmas cookies.  Mmmm...coookies....

Luke made this lovely number, which, as you can clearly see, is a Russian figure skater made of gingerbread.  Here, I think I have a better picture...

There we go.  Isn't she lovely?

And of course, the traditional "AE" cookie, which, um, I'm not really sure what it stands for.  I'll get back to you on that.  But look at the craftsmanship!  Amazing. 

Hope everyone had a great holiday season!  Now settle in for the long winter and stay warm and crafty!

Edit:  The "AE" is for our fellow Crafty Snark Andrew, who is rockin' out in Washington right now, working for Olympic National Park.  Absent in body but not in spirit...we miss you Andrew!
