Ah, the holidays. The time of year where I notoriously over-extend myself. To add a little extra pressure to the mix this year, we are taking a week and heading to Disney right before Christmas. I will do my best to write blog posts in advance and maybe even blog from Disney.
So, on the crafty front.....
I was honored to be asked by my boss to design our annual holiday card. Suzan is a great designer and has pretty high standards, so I'm doing everything I can to turn out something worthy. Since I can't make 100 holiday cards (and envelopes) by hand by Monday, the card has to be designed digitally. This brainstorm launched me into a search for some digital stamps and other stuff that might be useful, not to mention a crash-course in Photoshop. Let me tell you, I have an all new appreciation for the digital and hybrid scrapbookers out there. Your tools are incredibly complex and the graphics available to you are astounding! In search of 'starbursts' I happened upon Designer Digitals and picked up this little number:

This weekend will definitely be a crafty one. I need to get ahead on all the projects that will be due while I am away. I'll be working on my post for Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog. This promises to be a great series of holiday posts:
