Festivus 2K9, Baby!

Amazing how a sitcom can be as ingrained in our culture as Seinfeld is. I don't think I've gone a week since that show started without having a Seinfeld moment or hearing the show quoted. Most of us say "No Soup for You!" weekly.

Well, today is officially Festivus. A day, given to us by Seinfeld, upon which we erect an aluminum pole, have the traditional Festivus meal and the airing of grievances, and exhibit feats of strength. Festivus is now a quasi real holiday, with even a Ben & Jerry's flavor in honor of it.

I would like to announce that 2009 is the Understand Blue official first observance of Festivus, and I will celebrate it each year now, as today has been a very memorable Festivus indeed.

I choose Oatmeal and Bacon as my Festivus meal. I'd like to air the following grievance: Time flies when you're having fun. Boo to that. My feat of strength? Ending the Festivus meal to go on with the day.

And instead of a Festivus pole, which would set off all the metal detectors on my blog - a card.Stamps: Dasher Paper: Ruby Red, K&Co. Patterned Paper, Balsa sheets Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Basic Black satin ribbon, slot punch, Big Shot & sizzlits die, Scallop dies, embossing folder, sponge
(All Supplies Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted)

A paper artist's wish for Peace on Earth this Festivus.

Peace Out.

  1. Happy Festivus (for the rest of us)!

    Love the card! I am in stamping withdrawal right now. Just want to get home so I can make something pretty.

    Have a great day...I'll see you soon!

    (Oh, and my grievance? Those shirts. 'nuff said.)

  2. Lydia,

    This is absolutely stunning!
