hello there folks.
i have been so busy playing santa’s little helper selling all you lovely folks out there my goodies for the past months that i just really realized this past weekend that christmas is right around the corner and i need to get my butt in gear! i just finished making and addressing my holiday cards today. that’s a start right? at least i didn’t wait until 2 days before christmas to do it. i have been known to do that in years past.
i am so looking forward to the holidays this year as it has been a super busy few months in jay mccarroll land. i will be relaxing and hanging out with friends and family and trying out holiday recipes care of my girlfriend martha stewart. her recipes really are the best! have you tried her christmas punch? it’s divine! her treats are always presented so casually and beautifully with the best colors, linens, tableware and tchotchkes. i do love me some martha! even though at one point in my career her people declined me from appearing on her show because they said i wasn’t “a-list” enough. can you imagine? i did immediately cancel my subscription to her magazine but enough time has passed that i am referring to her again. you really can’t deny the aesthetic force that is martha!
