Christmas projects galore!!!

Hola chicos y chicas! Have a nice weekend?

I haven't posted anything in a little while because nothing has really been going on. Been busy with some side projects. I handmade 65 invitations for a coworker's Christmas party. Since I don't really charge them, I made sure I came up with a simple design. I was actually pretty happy with the way they came out! And I got a $100 gift certificate to a fancy Philly restaurant as a "thank you" so I'm happy! I know, I know, I should be charging these people. But it's kind of nice to get in good with the company. Especially since she's one of the CEO's daughters. :-)

Last Christmas I gave my head boss a glass Christmas ball that I painted with red flowers. I suppose she liked it because she called me this weekend and asked if I would make 20 ornaments by next Monday. Ugh, it's going to be a busy week! But I think with a stencil and some spray glitter, I can make magic happen! You see, she's taking me and 19 others out to dinner and to see Cats next Monday for Christmas, so she thought it'd be nice if she could give everyone a gift. I'd actually love it if she let me wrap them all because I just love wrapping gifts!! I ordered up some fancy wrapping paper from Kate's Paperie ($2.50 a sheet, I know I'm crazy) and I love making all my gifts coordinate! I'm hoping that I'll get a special little Christmas bonus for doing this project!

Our company holiday cards came in on Friday and I just love them! Here's what they look like:

They were printed on a shimmery paper and it really came out nice. They look much better in person. I hope everyone likes them! I'm sure they'd like them more if there was a big fat check inside. I still have my fingers crossed for that one. They don't let me in on those secrets. I'll be checking my mail religiously though!

Alrighty people, I'm done here. Hope you're all in the holiday spirit! Fa la la la laaaa, la laaaa laaaa laaaa!!!!

P.S. Just a note, I did not create that swoosh logo used in the holiday card!!! It's not my fault!!!

Very cute card!!! Dontcha hate it when you hafta go and stick somebodies orbitty, ovally logo on there and muss it all up? It still looks cute despite your objections to the logo :) Sometimes I think designers would be happier without logos at all!

Sounds like you've been a busy bee! I hope you get a nice bonus outta all this! :) But, even if you don't, you'll have lots of gratitude coming your way and professional points to boot!
