Obviously I did not make this...

My sister made this family Christmas "photo" out of felt. Talk about tallented (hence the title, since my artistic ability is almost nonexistent). All in all she was pretty happy with her work except that she noticed after the card was done that one of her legs was a tad fatter than the other {could this be a case of Christmas card elephantitis?} and that her 4 year old was a tad tall for her age {that is, unless she has a case of Christmas card gigantism}. But these things aren't even noticeable at all unless they are pointed out. Which I guess means they are now noticeable. Oooops.

Since she didn't feel like anything Christmas card worthy had happened this last year in her family so she decided to put down her 4 year old daughter Alex's dreams in the card (note: unless you have some freakishly awesome monitor screen that I would be totally jealous of, click on the image for a closer look at her dreams). What did I tell you. This girl has some creativity. Can you tell that Alex doesn't like robots but for some reason is fond of eye balls and spiders. Yeah, not the case with me. For some reason I get more scared of spiders by the day. I turn into a real girly girl around them which is totally and completely embarrassing but I just can't help it. Oh, and Alex also likes cats. Scary black ones in particular. At least that's what she wanted to be for Halloween....
