A very Merry Christmas to all!
We hope you enjoy this year’s card. Cause we sure had fun making it! A mash up of Bohemian Rhapsody tributes*, music styles and aspiring Sock Stars.
A special shout out to inspiration from Freddie Mercury for the tune. The only song to have reached the “UK Christmas Number 1” twice.
The original, at 5 minutes and 55 seconds, was considered too long to ever be a hit. Now it’s a timeless classic. And an inspiration to us for breaking conventions through artistic expression and craft.
Note: No socks were actually hurt in the making of the card. However, a few were lost in the wash.

While time is a four-letter word. Creativity is not. Some are convinced that time pressure stimulates creativity. Others believe it stifles. For these creatives, the answer is entertaining and inspiring:
Makes me want to get my crayons out… and creates a strange craving for paste!
Harvard Business School article says there’s some sort of a time pressure “sweet spot”. Too much pressure, lowers creativity. Too little pressure, lowers creativity. According to the “Ivy Leaguers” things that help to get the balance right are:
Spend focussed time
Work with a purpose
Fight the status quo
Avoid harsh criticism
Makes sense. But I suppose I’d add “take a trip to the Boxer beer fridge” to the list!
