the journey {352/365}

Santa’s letters have a long way to go before they reach the North Pole.

Today’s word prompt from the Mortal Muses is ‘journey’.


Did you know that Canada Post receives over one million letters to Santa each Christmas? And every letter with a return address receives an answer from Santa, in the language in which it was written (including braille), with the help of over 13,000 Canada Post volunteers.

That’s amazing.

What did you ask Santa for this year? ;)

      Thanks Mosey!
      I looked all over for an older model. Not a one to be found.
      Sometimes, progress is not a good thing ;)

    I love this picture – heck, I love ALL your pictures! I’m getting a new camera (not like yours, LOL) and a sewing machine – the most simple of sewing machines, cuz they intimidate me like you wouldn’t believe. So, baby steps. :)

      ANY camera is a good camera :D
      and I’ve been wanting a new sewing machine for awhile now. Are you getting one of the newer ones, the kind with all of the funky stitches for your art? oooh I can see some awesomeness coming from you!

        omgosh, no, it’s a simple machine – almost a child’s machine! LOL Here’s a link to it (and don’t laugh!)

    Love the photo, as always J! The mitt/gloves color, the mailbox, the interpretation…all of it. Awesome.

    I’m asking Santa for the same thing I pray for…not to have to move my branch of the company. I’ve got the dream team – I don’t want to lose them, I don’t want them to lose their jobs, and I don’t want to live where the company wants to move us.

    And health, peace & goodwill of course. ;-)

    Love this playful photo.

    My daily prayer – and Christmas wish – is that the family will stay healthy, safe, happy and connected.
