Gift Tags: 12 Days of Gifts

As the holidays approach I was casually asked by The Girl: Dad, are we doing the 12 days of Christmas this year?

…by which she means, are you doing that thing where you surprise me with 12 small presents each day of the twelve days leading up to the holidays? Huh? Huhhuhuhuhuhuh?

I’d almost forgot.  Oh, sure.  It’s a little bit of spoiling, but … Christmas!

This year, if you’re up to the same sort of shenanigans around your house, here are some handy gift tags. I needed some and so after I finished printing and cutting out my own I thought… why not share with my friends and fans?  So… download and enjoy!

Collector Cards: Gamer Girl & Wintersport Dad

Virtually every time I walk into a toy store or a game store I see a few specific things:

  • trading card games
  • cross-branded board games

Inspiration comes from everywhere… they say. I don’t know who “they” is, but I’ve said it, so I guess “they” might just as well be “me” and I’m finding with a creative project like This is Pi Day regularly churning around in my brain inspiration tends to latch onto things it wouldn’t normally latch onto.

In other words, there is a part of me –a few bored neurons tucked somewhere in adjacent to my neocortex– that really, really, REALLY wants to make a game… or some trading cards… or just something fun to give away to my awesome fans… and one idea that latched onto those neurons was to find a simple (and inexpensive) way to do all of those things at once.

So… collector cards! This is my first draft.
