A Christmas Sleigh Ride Through Papyrus Acres


Dear Our Salon Friends,

I may have stayed up until two am, but I've made and uploaded my first Youtube Video! And yes, the theme is definitely season appropriate. I feel so proud of myself!

Last year, it was the year of the Sushi Boat Nativity. But this year, it's a virtual Sleigh Ride through Papyrus Acres culminating in Christmas dinner at the Chateau de Papier. I just ran out of time and patience when it came to trying to add a sound track. Next time! While you watch this, please imagine sleigh bells ringing in your head. 


Merry Christmas, my dears!

(And if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a very good final Tuesday in December.)

Addendum:  If you have nothing better to do, tonight, how about finishing 2012 with a New Year's Eve Sleigh Ride through Papyrus Acres? It's pretty much the same video, but I have made some improvements, added a few images, and also, a sound track.

Happy New Year, Our Salon!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUdxgzDh3E4&feature=youtube_gdata There's the link for watching the Video. Sorry!  I can't get it to show up here. But I DID make the video, honest! Just no time to fix it now.

Merry Christmas Our Salon!

It showed up just fine for me.  I would love to hear a voice over of you talking about the ride.  Good work!

This was so delightful that I even heard the sleigh bells! (Which I often do, , ,whole other story) Merry Christmas Melissa!

Got "an error occurred please try again later"... guess I'll have to come back... smiling because it reminds me of Open Salon.  Happy Holidays.

Cute.  I like making little home-made videos.

Yay!  Papyrus Acres!  I haven't had much of a holiday feeling this year - we've been busy moving back to our apartment and working hard on the parts that need electricity/floors/painting - but this little sleigh ride filled my heart with joy. Thank you and very Happy Holidays to you!  I haven't been on Our Salon in days, so a belated Merry Christmas - I hope yours was wonderful and even more beautiful than the lovely architecture of Papyrus Acres!

If, like me, you cannot watch it on your current version of Windows, here's the link to the NEW updated version of the Christmas Sleigh Ride. Wishing you all a happy healthy new year in 2013.

Thank you to all who have commented! Alysa, considering all that's been going on in your life, it's no wonder you're a little behind on Christmas feelings.
