"It's the most wonderful time of the year."
When I was in Portland last month, I hit the "antique malls" and bought a swag of vintage horse show ribbons (they are older than I am). I thought they'd make a nice "Merry Christmas" banner. The woman serving me kept saying, "I wish people would stop taking my name in vain," to which everyone kept responding with blank looks. Eventually she shouted, "My name is 'Merry Christmas' and every year people take my name in vain." I wanted to ask her what the f*** was wrong with her parents to name her that, but instead I just kept looking blank and ran out of the store with my purchases.
Anyway, with my childlike cutting, stamping and sticking skills, I made a set of letters to spell out Merry Christmas. I plan to hang them for my Bad Santa video night.
Here are some other words that crop up at this time of the year. The last one is inspired by Gracie and my good friend Mr Doink (and matches my new Richie Designs letterpress cards, also found via Gracie).
