A New Year!

And a new quest to nourish my artistic soul. One of the ways I’m doing that is by participating in a challenge at The idea is to determine how many Christmas cards you will need to mail in November of 2009 and divide it by 11 months.
I didn’t get any Christmas cards mailed this year. Instead, I sent New Years cards. Nice, but I’d rather remember my family and friends at the beginning of the holiday.

My pledge is to make 10 Christmas cards every month between now and mid-November and to have them done by the 25th of the month. I don’t mail 110 Christmas cards but I do hand out to close family and friends as well as the 30 cookie/candy trays I give to area businesses. So yeah, 110 should cover everyone easily.

This month’s card was inspired by a calendar swap I was in last fall where I made the page for January. This card is a more labor intense version of the calendar page. I started these on the 24th but several stages of drying glitter later, it wound up taking me 4 days! I hope you like
