Mandy - yes, I agree heartily with your conclusion - I'm there too...PJ
Oh yes, PJ, being creative comes in handy for a multitude of other things... but it's not always such fun... I'd rather be designing something lovely than trying to design a schedule that enables me to design something lovely though!!!
Yes, Mandy, creativeness is also to find time for enjoyable activities!
Thanks PJ, you certainly are one busy lady!!! Perhaps that goes with also being creative, as so many of us are???
Mandy - I agree wholeheartedly with your wonderful comment on creativity and Jigidi.
I combine digital and crafts - that makes card-making fun and time-effective.
Oh, PJ, thank you for the vote of confidence! Now if only I can find me the time and patience, I'm in business...!
Love the puzzle and thank you Mandy :-) Also enjoyed all the comments below :-)
Thanks PJ - It's good to know my "swirl variant" is being enjoyed. I suppose I should not be surprised that people who are creating puzzles on Jigidi would also be creators of Christmas cards... no wonder we enjoy each other so much!!! I know I love Jigidi because it has enabled me to rediscover my creative side... most of my other creative venures in the past have taken up too much space... now all I need is my laptop and I'm off!!!!
Mandy - such a very nice puzzle. Just love your swirl variant.
Pat - you may not have time or patience to make cards - but you've got all the artistic talent it takes. (Even I make them - every year). PJ
Ohhh, look at you Lesley... you're getting even faster!!! LOL ~))
Nicely different Mandy.
Thanks whatnauts.... I might hold you to that!!!!!!!! LOL
This is great, monza - draw me a swirl and I'll follow you anywhere!! :)))))
Thanks Pat. Patience is wearing thin, especially when Freddy "helps"by taking all the off-cuts and sprinkles out of the waste basket and rearranging them around the lounge carpet. Counting to 10...lol
Oh, Hester, you win hands down--wow, handmade cards! That's wonderful! I don't have the patience, skill, or willpower to do that, but I bet the folks who get your cards appreciate them so much!
LOLOLOLOL - I seem to have unwittingly kicked off a storm!!!! But... I agree wholeheartedly with you both, Pat and Hester!!! If you're going to send a card, then tailored to the recipient is the only way to go... whether home-made.... sheeesh, Hester that's some challenge.... or bought with oodles of thought - and like you Pat, I try to ensure that people with a religious belief have a card to reflect that... although it is increasingly difficult to find such cards in the UK!! As for a sticker inside.... how cheeky!!!!
Mandy I think the British Postal Services need YOUR services! This would really make me smile if I got it on a card.Pat, I do exactly the same except I make (nearly) all of mine. At the moment I'm 16 short of the 82 for this year and my resolve is wearing thin!! Tonight It's make or break to finish them. I so love to get proper cards that show a bit of thought. We have a couple in our village who, instead of signing cards, use one of those pre-printed stickers. Fine for the back of an envelope to remind folk of your correct address, but inside...grr!Ok that's my rant out of the way...back to Ho,ho,ho! :-)
Oh, I'm a fuss-pot with cards! I make sure each one (I buy about 4-6 different boxes each time) is a good match for the family it's going to (lighthearted fun ones to families with kids, more religious ones to those I know are believers, plain seasonal ones to those I know are not, ones with the words "memories" or "families" in them to our own families, and so on). I do the same with the stamps! And each year I write down what card went to which person, so I don't repeat, in case I ever decide to use up any leftovers the next year (very rare). I also write down what names people sign in their cards--any new children? Are they signing without a child's name, because he or she is now married and moved away? I do that because I always try to inscribe the card to everyone I know lives there--even the pets, if I know their names! I hate getting cards from people we've known for 40 years, and they don't use our names, and they sign it Jane and John Jones! Really?!!!
And I'm sorry to go on like this, but I love the actual paper cards, and the fun of opening them and displaying them, and I just like to put that little bit of personal feeling in sending them. I'm such a poor communicator the rest of the year--maybe I'm trying to get absolution this way...! :-)))
Pat, It's nice to know some people are still sending cards, I've been getting digital ones recently, and it's not as nice as ones you can put up on show... I'll have a chat with your postal service... maybe next year??? In the meantime, I'm delighted you enjoyed this one :~))
Now this is postage I'd love so much to use! I have about 70 Christmas cards that I send, and this would be very festive! Thanks, Mandy!
