I can explain...

Hello again!

The sweet little mini Anya in the A Little Message set quickly became a favorite of mine when she was released. As I was looking at her again recently, with her sassy wink from behind the envelope, I was struck by some Christmas inspiration. What if Anya was sending a letter to Santa, trying to convince him that she really has been a good girl all year long? To make Anya look a bit more festive I found a pair of antlers in the older Oh What Fun set to add to her headband and I colored a holly print and candy cane stripes on her jammies and stockings. The sentiment from the Holiday Anya 11 set was the perfect way to tie the whole story together because I'm sure her letter is several pages long, LOL! Now I'm really hoping that we see some actual holiday/birthday versions of this A Little Message Anya in the future... fingers crossed!  ;)
