I am designing the flyer/invitation for the office Christmas (actually we don't get to say the C word anymore, it's a "Holiday" party, whatever)  and I would love to use something other than the usual predictable clip art from MS.  Ideally I'd draw something original, but don't think I want to spend the time for a work thing.

Does anyone know where I might find some fun images to use?

Thanks in advance, etc    : )

I like allposters.com actually.  They have alomst everything and it prints out great if you copy and paste into word.  otherwise I search MSN for Christmas and look under images and they have a lot too...

You want to be careful that you are not stealing someone's artwork that they put a lot of time and effort into.  Though if you are not making money off of it, or claiming it as your own it might not be as big of a deal.
Try a google search for "free winter clipart"

I usually go to font sites and download the free dingbat fonts. My favourite site is dafont.com (Under Christmas!)

I just realized that may not be clear.... I do that, and then I blow the fonts up big!

I did find a photo of Dwight from the Office lookiing forlorn in a santa hat, but I figured the stiff cube monkeys in my branch might not get it, or appreciate it.  I went with an ornament on a plate - which sounds deadly dull but looked kind of cool.  I tweaked it a little and it turned out kind of nice.  No doubt someone will raise a stink because it isn't generic enough. 
It doesn't snow here, but apparently the only acceptable winter holiday image is snow and snow men (what, no snow women?!)  I was actaully thinking of doing a rain theme, just to make a point, but thinking about it and laughing about it with my friends made me feel better, so now I'm ready to go to the font sites you guys pointed me to and find some good snow flakes, in case the ornament offends. 
Thanks for the info!   Smiley
