This is what part of my shipping station looked like a couple days ago. A super eclectic bunch.
According to the internet, we were probably supposed to get some adorable professional photos taken for Christmas for our newlywed year. And then we were supposed to send out a sweet holiday card to everyone that would arrive the week before. But instead, we spent the most of December attending parties, and then skipped town. No regrets.
But I do love a good Christmas card. And I know that I can only use wedding photos for so long before other people get tired of them. Solution: happy new year cards
I made them in similar style to our wedding invites, and used one of my favorite photos from our wedding. I love them, so I hope our family is happy to see them in the mail soon! I will have a slightly similar pattern of card available in my etsy shop soon!
We’re baaack! We’ve been practically everywhere, since we took a road trip to the northwest for the holidays. And now there is a short week, which is the best. Every vacation should be followed by a short week. Mandatory.
We went to the guy’s work party last night. So fun. Holiday parties always make me feel so festive. We listened to Christmas music while we got all dressed up. It was chilly outside, and we looked at Christmas lights on our way downtown. We took pictures of all the Christmas trees. It was just a really nice evening to celebrate and learn how to gamble with pretend money.
We decided on (impulse bought) a tiny real tree this year. You can’t beat that Christmas tree smell. We used our plaid fabric ornaments and some gingerbread men to decorate it.
Since the tree was just a little guy, we had some extra lights left over, so we put them around the house. The lighting makes the house look so cozy.
Tis the season for giving! Through Monday Dec 1 at midnight Central, you can order a set of 10 holiday cards or gift tags in the shop, and I’ll send a dozen instead! Simply order a holiday item, and get a couple extra cards included for free!
I added a couple more holiday card designs to the shop, including this little owl. A great little Thanksgiving craft to work on between turkey and pie!
