For the past month, I've been busy with commissions, some side projects, and just dealing with life. Now that things have settled down a bit, I find myself anxious to prepare for the Christmas season. New calendars (they're at the printer!! get excited!!!), greeting cards, maybe a print or two. I had so much fun last November lambasting our little apartment with Ikea frames filled with my seasonal creations. With The Stud's wedding in a few weeks and the likelihood of me traveling for most of September, I'm sensing some urgency to get ideas flowing and going before I take flight.
But I have no ideas. Not one. Well, one. Half of one. But it's not good. It's bad actually. It's really hard to think of seasonal things when it's nearly 100 outside and I'm in shorts. Guys, I need help. And I'm willing to beg and bribe to get it. I'm so desperate for inspiration that the only idea I could come up with was to ask all of you for ideas and to offer you notecards.
So here's how it works. Send me ideas! I want them all! Favorite holiday memories, recipes, cards, traditions, whatever! Leave a comment here on the blog, post photos to my facebook page, or tag me in instagram photos (@engquisto). No limit to the number of memories, photos, memories, paint swatches, whatever! Send me your creative mojo! Please! The winner will be selected at random on Wednesday morning (August 28th) and will get a packet of notecards from my current collection.
There ya have it. Help me help you (: Whatever reminds you of the holiday season, I want to hear it!
