How To - Recycled Magazine Christmas Tree

Sunday, December 21, 2008

While baking cookies, I whipped up these to decorate the front hall table, near the Christmas tree. Got a few old magazines or holiday catalogs laying around? Whip up a few of these for last-minute decoration before they hit the recycle bin; nothing else needed! I think they are perfect next to the Christmas card basket.

Overnight: got snowed in.

...I haven't even bothered with the driveway.

Lake Effect Snow

Fellow GAS member and I drove back from printing T-shirts in the thick of the storm, coming home to this:Good thing I remember where I parked...Right there. Hey wait... what are they doing up the hill?A roadblock?! ...and is that a laundry cart on the sidewalk? Whose crazy idea was this?

Whoops, the culprits are caught and forced to take apart their hard work. Props for using a laundry cart, but you should have waited until the middle of the night to build it, when the authorities were not looking. They should be studying for their exams, anyways.

Kalamazoo Gospel Mission

I don't think I've smiled this much in a while. And with the stress of exams coming up, there was no better time for it. Let me explain...Every year, Graphic Arts Society holds a Christmas party at the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. It was my first year helping out, and it was a huge success. All the kids, and even their parents lined up to have their picture taken while sitting on Santa's lap, and receive their presents. There were paper ornaments to color, cookies to decorate, face painting, and goodie bags for everyone. I'm going through all the photos and can't help but smile at each one. We're sending back copies of the photos for everyone staying there to enjoy. Here are just a few:Happy Holiday Season to everyone! What are you doing to celebrate?
