I am in love with sweaters and gloves.
I am love with Christmas shopping- which my husband and I did a little bit of this evening!
I am in love with my Christmas tree, which is finally up and looks magical.
And I am in love with making Christmas cards! I just don’t love sending cards out—so I tend to hand them out at the various holiday get-togethers.
|This is whatI will be giving out this year!|
Cards are as simple or as complicated as you want them to be. The only things you really need are: some high-quality paper, a good paper-cutter, and an awesome idea. As for paper, embellishments, and even tools (like that paper cutter), I watch for coupons and sales at the craft stores in the area—usually found in the Sunday paper. Usually, I only pay half of the regular price. Some of the best times I’ve ever had are when fellow card-makers get together; we all contribute $15 for snacks and supplies, and we spend the night making projects and reconnecting with one another!
I love making cards for others, and for myself. I’ve never attempted to sell them on Etsy, or anything like that, because I really only make cards when the spirit moves me, and I am afraid it just wouldn’t be fun anymore if I had to meet deadlines, and make dozens of trips to the post office to ship them out.
