2008 Santa's village - The Cookie Cafe



Because who needs a gingerbread house, when you can have a Cookie Cafe!








When I first sketched the design for this album I wrote the phrase, "workable whimsy" to identify the style. What do you think?



The Cookie Cafe is of course the restaurant in Santa's Village. You won't find any meat and potatoes here, only the YUMMY good stuff. Santa's got Karo syrup running through his veins, that's what makes him so sweet.

The Cookie Cafe was built in 126 ad, when Mrs. Claus FINALLY convinced Santa that there were just too many elves for her to feed all on her own. The Cafe started out as just a small square house, but over time, as the population of the children in the world has expanded, so have the working elves.... and so has the Cafe!


The large door is for Santa and Mrs. Clause of course, with a smaller door for the elves (which is usually open due to the constant stream of elves coming and going.)

The door and front windows both have lovely lace curtains (Mrs. Clause's idea).

Inside the front cover there is a small round mat. Perfect for a photo, personalized Christmas wishes, of the family name and year.





The second page has yummy, good enough to eat, gum drops.



The Third page has a cupcake roofline, complete with a paper baking cup, sugar sprinkles and a cherry on top.







Page four has a monogrammed candy. I used "M" for McClelland of course, but yours can be personalized with whatever letter you want.

The back cover has a steaming cup of hot cocoa and chocolate chip cookies, Santa's favorite!





Of all my albums so far, this is the quickest and easiest to recreate. I hope you love it!







The album kits should be ready to ship by December 2nd.

International buyers are always welcome! (additional shipping charges may apply depending 'ship to' location. Please email me Camillemcc@gmail.com if you have any questions regarding shipping costs.

Remember, I am only making 10 kits of each album (then I really have to spend some time doing my own Christmas shopping or my kids will be MAD!)

As of today, here is what's available:

Album Kit One:
Santa's Workshop - ONLY ONE LEFT!

Update 11/27/08 - SOLD OUT!
IF you are interested in owning this album, please send me an email at camillemcc@gmail.com. Depending on interest I may create more, but they will not be available till after the first of the year. Thanks!
