Christmas card ideas for a client. I can't decide which one I like better.
Right before Thanksgiving, these goodies came in the mail for me. Gifts. Many gifts all in one day. You'd think it was Christmas or something!
1. The hardboard in the back is a blank canvas for something creative from Pam over at doodlestreet. Thanks Pam, I cant wait to get paintin'!
2. The lovely striped friend frame is from my newest blogger buddy Lisa over at lisagravesdesign. It's from a new project she and a friend are launching. Best of luck to you Lisa and thanks so much!
3. The Keep Calm Carry On is from my friend Paige (I just love that name) who saw this and was reminded of my sister because that was her motto. Thanks Paige!
Then, while out lunching today in the OC with my newly re-aquainted longtime friend from elementary school Amy, I saw this jump into my hands and scream a silent scream for me to purchase it. So, of course I did and now I have something cool that my sister would have LOVED.
For those of you who asked, this is a diorama. It is a make believe world you create inside a shoebox. You can do one of any subject and for some strange reason I have been thinking about them and literally dying to do one. So last week my niece told me she had to do one for her 5th grade class and I nearly jumped out of my skin just trying to get some of THAT action! She came over yesterday and we created it along with my other niece who wanted some creative action too and made a Christmas themed one. Shame on me for not taking a photo. This is a sample of some random diorama from the internet.
How about you? Do you like to create little pretend environments in shoeboxes?
I am so grateful for a lovely long and leisurely lunch.
