Happy Holidays! What? You’re not quite ready? I don’t think there has been a year in the last ten that I wasn’t caught off guard by the holidays. I’m always stressed by the time they get here. This month I thought we could make ourselves a little motivational poster (or at least add some humor) to get us through these “before the holidays stresses” that might try and get in our way. Katie has put together a link for a few freebies for you to use, too.
Liz and Anke volunteered to join me in getting things rolling. Here’s what we’ve come up with.
I love what Liz has done with her page. How many of us have these same feelings during certain times of the year? A reminder like this page might just do the trick.
Here is a list of the supplies that Liz used on her page: Challenge Freebies, December Woods Element Pack, Tidewater Element Pack, Thin Classic Photo Frames Curled and Flat No.02, Messy Stamped Textures No.01, Messy stitched Borders: White No. 02, Wood Veneer Alphabet No.20, Just Linens Paper Pack, No.57: Broyden, Training Handrawn Words Brushes and Stamps.
Anke, made a page that showcases a talent that might come in handy if stress decided to show it’s bad self. A double play on words and it works beautifully.
Anke used these supplies: Best Adventure Lyered Template, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking kit, No.06, Curated Studio Mix Scrapbooking kit, No.08, Dictionary Blendables: Spring No.01, Fine Line Twists Brushes and Stamps No.03, Jaspia Solids Paper Pack, Cut Ups: Sportsmanship.
My page will hopefully motivate me to get more people involved in the preparations for the holidays. (Maybe I should make them each their own motivational poster. lol)
My supply list looks like this: Challenge Freebie, Monochromatic Overlays No.5, Splatters No.3, Blendable LT No. 43, Old Ledger Neutrals Paper Pack, Frame Hangers No.1, Winter Artistry Kit, Krafty Woods Paper Pack.
Don’t let the holiday’s take you by surprise. Motivate yourself (or one of your people) to limit that stress that seems to always creep up on us. If you would like to share, we would love to see your page in the AAM gallery. If you use all DD supplies on your page, it qualifies for the Rewards Program so be sure and post a link in the November Challenge Participation Thread.
