Instead of writing about my collection or crafting, I decided to dedicate the 13th day to other crafters and collectors who blog about their Santas.
Angie McKaig blogs about her Santa Claus and Crafting at http://www.santacollectors.com A year-round guide for fans of Kris Kringle. Angie is way ahead of me with her blog and Santa enthusiasts can find very well researched and written posts on the various types of Santas to collect, along with information about other Santa artists and crafters.
Dorothy's blog, "The Joy of Christmas", is chocked full of anything and everything you'd want to know about the holiday season.
David Claudon share's his Santa Claus collection (including the tiniest Santa I've ever seen) on his blog David's Gallimauphry. According to his site, a gallimaufry means a a hodgepodge, jumble, confused and his blog features such a variety of interesting topics, that is the perfect name for it.
The Collection Studio is a great blog site featuring articles on every type of collecting you can imagine. The link I've added is an article about Mr. Jean-Guy LaGuerre, the Guiness Book of World's Record holder for the most Santa Claus items. Believe me, I have no intention of competing with his over 25,000 Santas!
I be sure to add more blogs and blogposts as I find them.
Well, once again, it is late and I've been working at the lake house. I finally finished the tiled backsplash in the kitchen but it still needs grouting.
I'm taking a few days off, so I hope I'll get to play with my Santas and maybe craft a few as well.
