This holiday season I thought it would be a great idea to deign and make my own Christmas cards.
I handmade the invitations to our annual Halloween party this year and they came out so great that I thought I would repeat the process for Christmas.
I ran into obstacle after obstacle, time being one of the biggest ones of all, and after a few meltdowns and lectures from my husband about biting off more than I can chew I completed them.
Of course they didn't hit the post office until Saturday morning, but I finished them without compromising the design I envisioned and the perfection I expected. What can I say? I'm stubborn.
Husband scolded me that I don't have time to do projects like this but these are the things I love to do that make the holidays extra merry for me. Even with the occasional meltdown and roaming the aisles of the arts and crafts store in a daze at 9pm trying to think up a backup plan. If I can't decorate, bake and craft then what's the point?
Do you ever overextend yourself to do something you enjoy that makes the holidays special?
Have a very, very Merry Christmas and I hope it's spent with all the ones that you love best.
