  1. I’m having INSANE difficulty folding my screen!

  2. Here is an interactive “Christmas card”
    either copy to paint (or other photo manipulation software) and copy/ move the ornaments till you are satisfied, OR print and cut and paste the IRL way. Yes, the center is a little hinky, but you should be covering that area!

    Ps If you want different ornaments go ahead and make/ add them.

  3. Taking the challenge literally… here’s a quaint scene like you’d find on one of those big ‘ole boxes of Christmas cards.

  8. This isn’t an entry. Just sharing.

    The very first Christmas after I my divorce, I had nothing for decorations. My ex wife kept all of that stuff when we seperated. Someone gave me a tree, and I made decorations out of construction paper with the kids. On top of the tree, I made a simple angel by forming a cone and drawing a set of wings on another piece of paper to glue to the back. for the head, I used a picture of my 4 year old daughter. 5 years later, I now have full custody of all three of my kids and we still set that angel out every year.
    Last year, I made the angel posted below for the kids to color and cut out. They had a blast doing it, and shared the idea with thier classes who also enjoyed making them. I am sharing this now in hopes that someone else will have as much fun as we did.
    After doing this, it made me wish that I had discovered Hero Machine all those years ago. Thanks Jeff and everyone else that has made this program so great.
    Happy Hollidays.

    Today at Jack In The Box we ordered my usual breakfast of 4 tacos and a chicken sandwich and tea and my wife got her Big Texas Cheeseburger and a coke. When we got tot the window we had been told our order had been paid for by the person in front of us and said “Merry Chrstimas.” We were so thankkful since we really didn’t have the money to spend, but I am addicted to the JITB taocs.
    We have already decided to Pay It Forward payday .
