I was put on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things…

… Right now I’m so far behind I will never die. – Calvin from “Calvin and Hobbes”

I love Calvin and Hobbes.

Now as you might have heard in the news, on Sunday we’ll be voting for the new EU parliament. My favourite joke about the European election:
Interviewer: Who do you think will win in the European election?
Girl: Dunno, France?

Unfortunately, this was not meant to be a joke, because it was a real interview.
Today I voted by mail and I invite you to be my fellow European and go voting on Sunday.
If you want to live in a democratic society, to abstain from voting is not an option. Participating in the election is your duty. Here’s an appeal from Craig Ferguson, which holds true for any election, methinks.
Take a look:

The important part is at 7:13 if you can’t be bothered to watch the whole thing.

I’m off to do some research for the Monday conference now, because this Monday it will be my turn to do consecutive. o – m – g. knock on wood 🙂

So this is Christmas

… and what have I done?
I was pretty busy in the last time, and I know you all were, too. It’s Christmas, d’uh!
Anyways, I was also busy wrapping gifts and making cards, so I decided to post my top ten of the cards I made (must have been about 25 total). Here they are, enjoy!











Now it’s up to you to decide which one you like best!

Which card is your favourite?
#1 – Happy Holidays Flag
#2 – Four Squares
#3 – Snowman Felt Star
#4 – Branch Button
#5 – Baubles and Buttons
#6 – Snowman Button
#7 – Sew Wintergreen
#8 – Handsewn Pink Buttons
#9 – Branch Felt Star
#10 – Pomegranate Snowman

I won’t list all the materials I’ve used to make these, but just to give you at least some ideas what the cards are made from:
Cardstock: PTI Kraft CS, SU Wild Wasabi, SU Buckaroo Blue, SU Old Olive, SU Sage Shadow,SU Purely Pomegranate, SU Very Vanilla
DSP: SU Wintergreen, SU Dashing, SU Chocolate Chip
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Versamark White, Versamark, Encore Silver, SU Real Red

Ribbon is from PTI & SU, I also used some white Embossing Powder, SU Hodgepodge Hardware Silver brads and the rest is from local stores.
The cutie snowman I used so much is from Inkadinkado (the baubles & the snowflake are, too), the branch is from the PTI Out on a limb Set, the sentiments are from Stampendous, Inkadinkado and PTI.
If you have questions, feel free to ask!

Anyways, we’re all getting ready for opening presents and as it’s already dark outside, it won’t be long 🙂
I hope all of you are having a very merry Christmas & a great holiday season, take care!

Who’d you vote for?

Vote For President

If you were an American, you would soon be able to elect the future President. By clicking on the banner above, you can pretend to do just the same, except for the fact that it doesn’t matter where you live.

So folks, who should become the next Head of State of the “U S and A” if it was up to you?
(I already voted, of course, for Obama.)

Let your voice be heard!
