Christmas Card Inspiration Board

With Christmas just around the corner, I decided to make a Christmas Card inspiration board.

Christmas is just around the corner…?  It certainly feels like it to me.  But I am ahead of most of the stores even.  This is disgruntling.  So I spent some time in thought this weekend.  And I came up with a reason why Christmas feels imminent.

It is because I am an American in Canada. Canadian Thanksgiving has just passed, and this has put my psyche into Christmas Mentality.  Once American Thanksgiving is over it is basically one month until Christmas.  I realise this notion is apparently deep in my psyche.

I don’t mind.  I think I like the feeling of Christmas-is-just-around-the-corner-hurry-make-something-!.  It gives me enough time to actually do the handmade Christmas.

So, taking last year’s Christmas magazines  and a handful of Scrapbook magazines from 2006, I made a little Christmas Card inspiration board.It is easy to get a creative overload while going through Crafting magazines.  Not only are you filtering advertisements, but every page is loaded with small ideas and ways of making cards.

So, I simply cut out a few ideas I stuck them onto my own commercial free idea board.  If you are interested in doing the same, I would also encourage you to use magazines that are not specifically for Christmas.  This helps to expand the creative mind and go beyond the trends.

Just a thought.
