Christmas is coming!

Okay so it's really not coming just yet, but my copy of Paper Crafts Holiday Cards arrived in the mail a few days ago, all secretive in its manila envelope, and I spent this morning pouring over the pages of beautiful cards. I sat for hours, coffee in hand, listening to Christmas music and soaking up inspiration.

I'm bound and determined to make Christmas cards for everyone on our list this year and to have them sent out before Christmas actually arrives! Considering we haven't sent out cards at all since we've been married this will be a big step for us...and a lot of work for me, but I'm super excited!! I really can't wait for Christmas anyway- I generally start listening to Christmas music as soon as those around me will allow it. I'm usually forced to wait until Halloween, but I started strong today!

The current struggle is whether or not to include a picture in the card. There weren't really any in the magazine that included a picture, but I think I could make it work with a few of the designs. I've also discovered a new company that I LOVE. Papertrey ink. I could spend hours and hundreds of dollars on their website! I'm planning on buying the stamp set "Silent Night" for Christmas card making for years to come!

I'm off to spend this summer evening at a street fest, but I'll be humming Christmas carols in my head all night long!
