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.
