Mission: Failed

Well, as you may or may not have noticed, I gave up on my "post every day" goal. I missed on Thanksgiving, and then I realized throughout the weekend, if I post, it's going to be a generic, "post 'cause I have to" kind of thing. So I figured I'd wait until I actually had something to say.

I don't right now.

But I felt guilty, so I figured I'd better say something. I sent out some invitations to our holiday party. Here's how they looked.


I printed them on Stardream Quartz and mounted them on this awesome red corrugated cardboard that I found. I'm still paranoid that no one is going to show up and there's going to be four of us sitting in my living room, scarfing down a tray of wraps and a platter of pigs in a blanket, washing it down with pitchers of appletinis.

I also have hopes of finishing a calendar to pass out to family for the holidays. I snagged 20 of those calendar jewel cases that are ever-so-popular nowadays. I'm keeping the designs as simple as possible. Easier for me to design, and generic enough that everyone should enjoy it. So far, I have one month done. How lame is that?


I know I'm going to be scrambling on Christmas Eve to get the other 11 months finished. It's just how I do things!

I posted on your Flickr page already, before I saw this on your blog. Do you mind if I ask where you got the jewel cases? They're just standard CD cases aren't they? You should post the rest of your calendar when you're done.
