I can't wait to have all these goodies in my hot little hands!

A little bit of bad timing as its almost Xmas, and now I have a heap of paperwork and organising to do, so I had better take this oppportunity to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and safe Xmas (just in case I run out of time).

I hope Santa is good to you and remembers everything on your wish-lists!!

Cheers!

That's a pretty big ship! You must be getting a LOT of presents from that thing! The presents I get are small enough to be carried by hand...

I've so enjoyed your blog. I too am dragonfly obsessed. Do you ever mail order to USA?

I have a wonderful song and story to share with you, but don't have it in my California home. In our cottage in Maine I keep a dragonfly file for my writing. In it I have the dragonfly lullaby, which the Luiseno Native Americans believe will charm them out of the sky and onto the hand of a pure person.

Happy 2010,

Sharon
