The first post for November


I have been keeping busy and staying out of trouble so that is a good thing! I have not been keeping up my blog which is not a good thing! I have been urged to start doing Christmas things for creativity. It has taken me years of forcing myself to start early denying the fact that this holiday keeps coming earlier every year. I used to work retail. Anyone that works retail knows what a nightmare this time of the year can be. I worked in the hobby/craft retail market so believe it or not we started getting our first Christmas merchandise in March for the following December. Scary to think about isn't it? I used to spend hours setting up displays and decorating the store so doing my own home was the last thing on my mind. I used all of my creative energy in making the stores look pretty. Sadly, I never bothered to take one picture of any of my work. Anyway once I left the store, it took me ages to be able to get back into the Christmas spirit. Gradually it returned when my grandchildren arrived. Kids and Christmas just go together.
Well, here is my first attempt at an assembly line Christmas card this year. These are easy to do up ahead in mass and put together when you are watching TV.
The glossy cardstock was sprayed with those wonderful Radiant Rains and stamped and embossed with a flourish stamp designed by Susan Stringfellow by Inque Boutique. WorldWin Cardstock and gold embossing. Easy to do.
Enjoy!
