Our ATC group, Arts in the Cards, is doing a flat santa trade. Janice Paine-Dawes introduced me to Flat Stanley, who we based the flat santas on. Apparently kids write stories to go with Flat Stanley and he travels around the globe...just like santa, but without a sleigh.
My santa is kind of half elf; his pointy gold slippers and harlequin pants are a testament to his elfenness, and he is so interested in who has been naughty and who has been nice that it is written on his shirt. Somehow I think elf-santa prefers the naughty people...because he sure looks like he wants to dance and party all night.
