I just realized I am just 3 posts away from 200 posts! Now usually I will post and then get around to another a few days later. But to make my milestone, I will have to post something each day until Jan 1st. I just hope I can think of enough stuff to share. My life is not that interesting....LOL But here goes!
First up. This Christmas I got creative. Using one idea from HGTV, another blogger's simple packaging and my own noggin, I came up with some tags for my families presents. I rummaged thru all my old photo albums looking for old Christmas pics. Scanned them, sent them to Picnik to embellish and then emailed them to Wal-Mart to have them process them into 4 x 6 photos. With one hour photo, I figured it was cheaper and easier to have them print them, rather than me. Next, how was I going to attach them to the package? I toyed with using old Christmas cards as backers, or just punching a hole in one corner. Then, I had a aha moment! I had bought (like 10 years ago) these Hallmark cards where you can insert a photo and never used them. And of course they were still sitting in my desk in the attic. Instant picture frames! Worked like a charm and I could just slip the picture under the ribbon and I was done. They were such a big hit! Everyone oohed and ahhed, and later when all was said and done, my youngest put all of hers along the mantle in her house. It felt good to get my creative juices flowing again and to surprise and delight everyone, but the question is... What will I do next year??? ....LOL Always, Kit
