Photo time

My Christmas present to myself was a new camera (Canon Xsi Rebel)...something I've been coveting for oh so long....Couldn't help but take a million photos over the holiday!

An AMAZING wrist warmer handmade by my girly in North Hampton! St. Runge represent!!

Self portrait w/ my new Gretta doll made lovingly by Gretta!

Happy Holidays from Cotton Monster!

To all my Cotton Monster fans, friends and family....wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday season! I owe you all tons and tons of hugs and cookies and eyeballs! I feel so lucky to have amassed such a great following and gotten such good press these past few years. I am so happy and honored to be making art that lives in people's homes from Bulgaria to California to Texas and my favorite place of all Baltimore.

I know this has been a crazy year for everyone...I can't help but stare into the lights of my very first christmas tree...take a deep breath and think of all the things in my life that I am thankful for (this bearded fella is on the top of the list). I am eagerly awaiting 2009, remaining hopeful that its not to late for things to change.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words, good vibes and monster lovin'!
