Handmade Christmas Cards

There’s something fun about the stacks of paper and supplies that I always have when I’m making my Christmas cards.

Blue cardstock, strips of old sheet music found at the thrift store,

green tags cut with my current favorite paper punch and stamped with a design and a greeting,

a large stack of pictures of my (somewhat) supportive children,

and smaller tags punched from the sheet music with our names on it.

The letter is written (short and sweet!)

Last year my pregnancy hit me hard at the beginning of December, along with another crisis in our lives.
I was so exhausted I was afraid of falling asleep at the wheel on the way to and from school!
I mailed my cards at the end of January.  That’s not going to happen this year!  I’m determined to get these cards done and mailed before I start other Christmas projects.

Progress…

progress…

progress… (note the change in lighting, now we’re working late at night)

DONE!

Here’s the final product:

Hooray!  Most of them are mailed.  I just have to pick up a few more postage stamps and track down a handful of addresses, and then they’re REALLY done.

Meanwhile, Merry Christmas to you!
