Yea, yea, I know...
I said I would fight the power and not make New Year's Resolutions, but hey...
I'll take all the help I can get when it comes to getting organized. I have to admit, I'm a wee bit OCD when it comes to this. It already bugs me to call it OCD, not for the grammatical aspect, but the alphabetical order of it...CDO is much more suiting!
Back to getting organized and that particular task at hand. I would like to thank the challenges going on over at ABC Christmas Challenges and Karen's Doodles for helping me start and eventually complete my Christmas cards for 2012.
I would have started at ABC sooner, but yet again, it didn't seem right to start at "W" so I patiently waited, biding my time until "A" rolled back around. Finally it has arrived and the new ventures have begun with a sprint, quite like horses fleeing the gates. I'm not sure where the hell the horses went to, but here I am at a slow and steady trot. So far so good and I hope that I am able to see this mission to "Z" before I see the pasture!
Bigsby Candy Cane from Karen's Doodles
Accented with Spellbinders Circles, Tim Holtz Holly, Pine and Acorn, Candy Cane charm from stash and the cutest Vintage tag gifted to me by Lori.
Karen's Doodles is having a Paper Piecing challenge currently (pssst...also a DT call if anyone is interested!) and I thought I'd combine the two together just for stuff n' giggles. I went beyond nuts with this and everything except Bigsby's body is pieced. That little cutie, I tackled with Copics.
I'd also like to thank Pandora Radio for keeping me motivated as well. Were it not for the soul inspiring music of Mumford and Sons, one of my fave groups, oh and the Penguin Cafe Orchestra (A Brief History). DOH! Almost forgot Philip Wesley too (Light and Shadow) and of course Adele (21); I dare say I would still be sitting here trying to locate the littlest pieces of that candy cane precariously hidden on my elbow!
It was an amazing crafting afternoon and I hope the card is easy on the eyes for you. :)
Thanks SO much for stopping in today and HEY.....
ALL of your comments just mean so much to me, so Thank You!
Hugs and awesome chair dancing while crafting...
p.s. I'd love any suggestions you might have for music. It's alway fun to see what different music guides your mind to create.
