Welcome to Humor Me Wednesdays!

What is Humor Me Wednesday?  Are you reading it correctly?  Did you have too much Egg Nog last night while celebrating the holiday with your family and are in a fog this morning?  
Or did you get up before the butt-crack of dawn for that after Christmas shopping and are in desperate need of coffee??

Nope, you read it right.  We wanted to give you a little sample of a new Wednesday theme we'll be sharing with you  beginning the first Wednesday in January - 

So, on Wednesdays, the designers will be highlighting a few funny or bizzare 'holidays' with some type of Bugaboo Stamps creation.

For instance, did you know that this past Sunday, December 23 is Festivus - for the rest of us?  Or that Christmas Eve is also 24 National Chocolate Day - I say BRING ON THE CHOCOLATE!!

Today is Boxing Day, tomorrow doubles as Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day & National Fruitcake Day.  And believe it or not, New Year's Eve - it's also Make Up Your Mind Day.

Be ready Wednesday for a little chuckle and bizarre holidays that make you go hmmmm.

Don't worry, tutorials aren't completely going away - we still plan to have a Tutorial the last Wednesday of the each month.  =)
Happy Craftin'!
