But I'm determined to get on track this weekend.
Last night I stamped and trimmed out pointsettas for the first 30 cards. Its a good start, but I've got to crank it up as I usually send out 120+ cards!! I'm going to sit and stamp enough for the rest of the cards and then I can trim them as I have moments here and there.
I also vow to cut all the paper this weekend - not such a bad chore since my darling sister bought a Carl Cutter for me so I should be able to zip through that easily enough.
I also have to get the photo of my boys printed. I usually spend a lot of time agonizing about that photo, right clothes, good smiles, eyes right on the camera. Well, my two year old is all about teaching ME a lesson rather than the other way around. So, this year, I'm not agonizing. I have a photo that I like - and I'm moving forward.
If I make 10+ cards each night I'll be done in about a week and a half. Not so bad. I did keep them simple enough that its achievable. I can't show you the card - that would spoil the surprise, but I'll give you snippets here and there of what I'm up to, and then I'll post the finished card just before Christmas.
If you're making holiday cards this year, I'd love to hear where you're at. If you'd like to make them, but worried about how much work it is, just divide that job up into little chunks and start moving forward. Even if you don't do your WHOLE list with hand made cards, pick a group of people that would appreciate your work and get those into the works.
Yes its work, but for me, a true labor of love. Have a great weekend everyone, I'm off to cut paper. I'll be back on Monday with a shot of my progress.
