You better pour yourself a cup of coffee - I have lots to tell and give you.
1. Clean out doubles - Competition
If you were following this blog last Christmas you may remember that December is my time for cleaning out my archive. Such a clean out usually results in finding a lot of doubles = material I have purchased twiced. And I want to make it a Christmas tradition to give them away to you. Last year's Christmas Card Competition was not the biggest success, so this year I have decided to do something that requires less work for you.
As you will find out later in this post inspiration can come from unexpected places and I sometimes need inspiration to make your freebies. Therefore, this year's competition will be as follows:
Email me something that means a lot to you - it can be a song title or lyrics, a poem, a picture or painting or simply a single word - anything you find inspirational. You don't have to email me full lyrics or the picture in itself just make sure I have enough information to find it on line.
The deadline is New Years Eve and when the calendar shows 2012 I will have an impartial person pick the winners at random. There will be 3 equally big prizes for the lucky winners. When you email me put "Inspiration" in the subject field and make sure to include your name and email information and also let me know if you use PhotoShop as some of the doubles up for grabs are PS Tools.
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Today's Freebie - For Carrie and her Mother.
The freebie I offer today is a special freebie. It is of course for all of you but it was inspired by a comment I got the other day from Carrie from Delaware and is therefore made especially for and dedicated to her and her mother from Aalborg in northern Jutland, Denmark. The freebie contains a lot of stuff associated with a good, old fashioned, Danish Christmas. I have also included a text that means a lot to all Danes around Christmas. It is an extraction from the Book "Peter's Christmas" written in 1870 and still known to all children in Denmark. I have used the fantastic illustration from the book to make a few elements for the kit. Finally, I have helped all you non-Danish speaking friends around the world by including a small word list giving you a few of the Danish Christmas words in English.
Here it is - click image for direct download (4shared).
I hope you will all enjoy a Danish Christmas with me. If you are interested in knowing a little more about Christmas in Denmark you can go to this site.
