More Holiday and some thoughts

So, Have you jumped on the Facebook phenomeon? I was a little reluctant at first. Here's how I figure it, I get hundreds of e-mails at work, why would I want even more? I didn't want to join. Then one day a few months ago, Kev said to me, "I set up a Facebook account for you. You should see what its about." I grudgingly accepted.

Have you ever read The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman? It's a great book which talks about the flatening of the world and how easy it has become to receive and transmit data and information. I highly recommend it. I kinda see Facebook as a prime example of that concept. It used to be that after you graduated high school or college you kept in touch with your really good friends and the rest fell to the wayside. Then came Facebook. All of a sudden you are thrust into memories that you may or may not want to recall. Sure you can choose not to accept people as friends but sometimes the most random of people pop up on the "People you may know" column. What if your HS ex is a friend if a friend and pops up, or the guy you had a crush on, or your awful ex-roommate?

I can honestly say that Facebook has turned out to be such a blessing, I've been able to reconnect with friends from college and HS that I thought I'd never see again. Yes, the world is flat, but wow is it fun.

Now that my moment of Zen is over I do have a card for you. In my desperate attempt to make some Christmas cards I have this one using The Cats Pajamas set Deck the Halls I love this stamp with the curious penguins! I could totally use them especially if Kev tries to put my wrapped presents under the tree again.

The cardstock is PTI Pure Poppy and Ripe Avocado. The Ribbon is also ripe Avocado from PTI. I think the red ribbon is from Michaels. A few baubles and I used my Martha Snowflake punch. I bought the patterned paper from a lady at a show a few weeks ago. I colored the penguins with my copics and I added some red Stickles to their hats. Too cute!

Alright, off to update my Facebook page :) Have a good night!
