Sarah Palin, John McCain, and BARACK OBAMA!!!

I couldn't resist. Truth be told, I didn't try to resist very much. I just had to make this new set of Christmas cards featuring John McCain and Sarah Palin (they're in my Etsy shop, in case you need them). The Obama cards are still my favorites, but I'm sure there are a few staunch Republicans out there who don't want to receive an Obama card for Christmas, even if he is going to be the next President of the United States.

So these cards are for those people. Get over it. They lost. Barack won. :-)



Speaking of Barack Obama, you might remember a not-too-long ago post where I mentioned that I was working on a beadweaving project that involved 64,700 beads. Wanna see? Hmmm?

Okay, here it is. I know some people probably thought it was one giant beadwoven something-or-other, but it was actually 20 beadwoven cuffs featuring the name of our President Elect, with his logo acting as the "O" in Obama. They were requested by a very special customer of mine, and even though I was happy to do them I think it'll be awhile before I do anything else involving red, white, blue, and gray! The only saving grace was that while I was working away on these, I was thinking of other ideas and jotting them in my little notebook.

(I kind of like this shot.)


And here they are all packaged and ready to go on their way... each one with one of my Santa Obama gift tags, which I thought might be a nice touch as these are being given as Christmas gifts.

Quite a job! I understand your feelings with the red, white and gray. I sew. And I'd much rather work with bright stimulating colors.

What a mind- and finger-numbing task! Brava, my friend, for making it to the end. Imagine if the other guy had won ;o

Hey, just wanted to let you know that while I am still recovering from my shoulder surgery, and getting better every day, I still can't type for long periods of time without pain. That said, I enjoyed your post and am glad I dropped by.

peace,

I don't think I'd ever want to use gray, red, white and blue again after that! Great job and the cards are great, too!

I still love and wear mine, too. It lives at my desk so I can play with it when my fingers aren't attached to the keyboard :)
