I admit it - I am apparently incapable of any original ideas. Probably due to the fact that all of you other wonderful bloggers out there have so many great ideas and projects that I don't need to come up with one of my own :-) . And since I am out there browsing other creative blogs I don't have the time or brain power left to come up with any original ideas, so there. Ha. That being said, here are some calendars I made based on a design I saw on Splendiferous Creations:
I used a Hero Arts alphabet set and the circle stamp is from PaperTrey's Borders and Corners set. Since my name begins with "J" I tend to judge an alphabet set based on that letter and most of them have horrible Js! The look nothing like a J but more like a T usually. This one is perfect, as you can see. I gave these to my Friday Night Stamping Group ladies at our annual Christmas dinner/Yankee Christmas Party last week. For those who may not be familiar with a Yankee (no offense intended) Christmas Party it goes like this....
Each person brings a wrapped gift. You draw numbers and the one with #1 goes first, of course. They also get to go again at the end. So, #1 chooses a wrapped gift and opens it. Then the person with #2 can either take the gift from #1 or choose another wrapped gift. IF they take #1's gift, then #1 gets to choose another wrapped gift. And so it goes on...and on....and on. Supposedly after a gift has been taken from 3 people it is considered "dead" and must remain with the person that has it. UNLESS......oh, I forget what the unless is. It's all very complicated but a whole bunch of fun. I have also heard it called a Chinese Christmas Party, a Crazy Santa Party and a Dirty Santa Party. I'm sure the rules are different everywhere. At any rate, we all had a wonderful time, ate alot of delicious food, and went home with fabulous gifts.
Today I worked on Thank You cards and will post those after they have been received by the lucky recipients, so as not to spoil the surprise, of course.
FYI - If you are anywhere in the vicinity of Mooresville, NC and "need" some stamping stuff, Stamper's Alley is having an awesome sale through the end of the month. Check the website for details.
That's it for now and maybe by next time I will have had a fabulous new idea and post something never before seen! I wouldn't count on that too much, but stranger things have happened!
