A few years back, one of my lovely stamping friends Judy May was a feature designer on the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge Blog.
It was a time when I was still working in the construction industry and commuting for up to (and sometimes in excess of) 3 hours a day for work, so I wasn't really blog surfing at the time or looking for design challenges to fill in my day.
However, I loved the idea of committing to make one or two Christmas Cards every single week, so that when you get to November / December, there is no panic.
Last November was one of those "bad years" when I joked several times about having to go to K-mart and buy a box of Christmas cards to send out, because the production line had just gotten away from me. And it was when we were away in Busselton in early December that I remembered about Judy doing Merry Monday and thought to myself, that would be a good thing to kick off again this year!
So, before we get too much later into the year, I think it's time!
Welcome to Making Merry Monday!
I'm not going to run this as a challenge per se, but intend each Monday for it just to be a little reminder for you and for me, that we need to make a couple of Christmas cards this week, to take the pressure off later in the year!
I have cheated a little bit - you have to do what you have to do!! When the Holiday Catalogue was finishing, these gorgeous Stitched Greeting Card Kits were on sale and 50% off, so I grabbed a couple to get me underway.
I love the idea of the kits because I can keep all the supplies in one plastic tub that I can take with me wherever I am on a Monday and just progress my production line!
Who wants to play along? Will you make one or two Christmas cards each Monday and store them up for the year?
Leave a comment below and let me know you are keen!
