Sorry I've been MIA... Christmas is the best time of the year, but also the most stressful. With crafts galore, presents, and of course waiting until last minute to get everything done, it takes a lot out of you!
But rather than talking about Santa and presents I have a question for YOU. Yes you. Have you sat back during this busy holiday season to remember the real reason for the bows and trees, the stockings and presents? Have you looked at the miracle that Christmas truly is? Christmas is a season of hope, joy, love and peace. A season of such magnitude, no other holiday could possibly hope to measure up to.
Have you gotten caught up in the tinsel and tags? Have you been a Scrooge this year? Did you remember the reason of the season?
My message to you this Holiday season is to enjoy yourself. To laugh and love. To believe that everything will work out. I know many of us are caught by the recession and feel as if we need to give more to everyone, but FYI: it's the thought that counts. So share a friendly word, a smile to a lonely person, forgiveness to someone who has hurt you, and you will gain the happiness and love we all wish to have during the holidays
Much love this holiday season,

Well, I've officially designed my first blog header for someone else. Wow. You wanna see it? Here it is:
To see it in action go to her blog: Here (if it's not up yet, it should be at most, up in a couple of days.)
Yay? Nay? If anyone who reads this is a professional designer, I would love any advice, criticism or what not you have. I really have no idea what I'm doing here. I just play around until it looks nice.
And for those of you who don't design at all... You want a personalized blog header? For free? I would love if you gave me another chance to expound on my design skills.
You know what? If you want one- The first 10 commenters will get one! Leave a comment on this post with your email and I'll get back to you asap!
OH, and this is just a little Christmas tree thingy I made last night... How you likey???
Thanks for commenting! ;)
P.S. These are all my designs. Please don't copy, use these designs without my permission or claim these as your own work. I spent a while working on these and I would hate to have all that go to waste. Thank you!
