Merry Christmas! Thank you to all who have supported SwirlyBugz this year. It was a great year! And I am so thankful to all my fans, supporters and customers! HO! HO! HO! I hope Santa is good to all of you.
is brought to you by my Emily, age 12. I believe the reindeer hair qualifies as a swirl. :)
She made this cake for Christmas Eve with the help of our awesome family resident baker, Anne.
Emily only allowed me to use this picture for my Swirls if I promised to reference her business.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE EVERYONE! XO
Hoping for a slight, white Christmas here in New England. Just a dusting, make it pretty!
Nothing shovel-able! :)
FROSTY FUN FACT: Did you know the song Frosty the Snowman was originally recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950 as a Christmas follow-up to his previous hit Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.
DID YOU KNOW...
• We celebrate National Poinsettia Day on December 12 to mark the 1851 death of
Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, the botanist who first sent the festive flowers to the U.S. from Mexico.
• When Poinsett first introduced the plant to the U.S. in 1828, most botanists dismissed it as a weed.
• Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are not poisonous.
AND, in the fall/winter, you can find pointsettias in festive SwirlyBugz pots at events!
Watch for next year's dates!

SwirlyBugz found for you...this. I was watching one of my all time favorite Christmas movies last night.
Must watch every year. Every other year, I watch it in color! ;) Anyway, just admiring the SWIRLS used in the opening credits of this 1946 holiday classic. Do YOU like this movie? What's your favorite part? I have many, and found myself literally laughing out loud watching this last night, many parts. Love it! And James Stewart! Classic.
introduces the newest member of the SwirlyBugz ornament collection, large silver jingle bell.
Jingle Bells is one of the most well-known Christmas carols in the world. Originally wrote in the autumn of 1857 by James Lord Pierpont, and was published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh”. James composed this song in 1850 in Medford, Massachusetts.
AND Medford is also home to the fun shop 4GoodVibes, where you can find SwirlyBugz goodies!
Who am I?
