  • Can't leave well enough alone :D

    Well the topic of copyright has always been a hot one here on the forum.
    I was looking to do some Santa projects this year. I know Santa isn't copy written, heck I even have a suite of my own.

    I mentioned Santa as we know him is largely to do with Coca Cola.
    They got there original concept from a piece of art in Harper's Magazine
    This picture was done by Thomas Nast back in the late 1800s.

    Haddon Sundblom designed a Santa for Coca Cola which eventually, ended up being a self portrait.
    What a jolly old soul.

    As for me mentioning the red suite came from Coca Cola, Well I was wrong....gee that's a first .
    Lucky for Coke, they had the same colors as Santa

    I know traditionalists will say Kris Kringle and Saint Nicholas had their roots in other countries, but no one held a copyright of that either.
    Anyway Christmas is fast approaching, and there is some good reading out there on the topic of the Jolly old Soul.
    Happy Scrolling.

      Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

      He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver.

      We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
