Today's Christmas card sponsored by The Project Bin features the wonderful Santa face from their newest Christmas set, Mid Century Christmas. It brings back so many treasured holiday memories of my 50s and 60s childhood so, of course, I love creating with it!
During those years my dad and my uncle worked for the some electric company. My uncle had always played Santa at all of the company Christmas parties. The time came when he could no longer do it, and my dad decided he would enjoy that. Well, it just so happened that my mother was an amazing seamstress and made all of the clothes for herself, my sister, and I. Undaunted by the task, she set about to make him the most amazingly awesome Santa suit that he enjoyed wearing for many, many years to come serving as Santa for his company, our church, and many charitable organizations. Even after retirement, he would dress up in that gorgeous Santa suit each Christmas to delight and entertain his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
There even came a time when he was involved in a traffic accident while wearing his suit. Imagine the story that lady went home to tell her family! "Guess who I ran into today? Santa!" We still laugh about that one!
