Christmas Cards

Merry Christmas Eve, Friends!!!
Anyone else sitting there wondering how on EARTH it is already Christmas Eve???  For real.  Wasn't it just summer?!?!?!  I've decided that all I want for Christmas is a pause button ;)

One of my very favorite parts of Christmas are the cards.  I am a total dweeb who loves "snail mail" so getting little glimpses of some of our favorite people in our mailbox on the daily is the best.

I designed close to 60 cards this year and had 5,500+ cards printed - which totally blew me away!  (I'll share some designs next week!)  I always feel a little "tapped out" by the time I get to my own family card, but thankfully I always have fabulous pictures to work with and inspire me.

I wish I could send everyone out there a little bit of Happy Mail, but since that's not in the cards (hahaha, get it???), you'll have to settle for a virtual card from me to you ;)


So, I bought this cute little Christmas card stand back in November, and I thought it would be perfect to display all of our cards.  Well - it was perfect until about December 5th - when it was overloaded and you couldn't see anyone's sweet smiles.  So I came up with this...

I picked up a roll of washi tape at Target, picked a spot in our kitchen where we'd see them all the time and just started taping them up!






The little stand is next to the buffet and is holding some of the folded cards and a few I haven't hung up yet.  I love that the cards are "loud and proud" for everyone to see, appreciate and talk about.  Several Slightly Askew clients sent me a copy of the cards I designed and those have been super fun to hang up and look at as well.

I hope you enjoyed your virtual card (and your real one if you were on my mailing list!!!) and if I designed your cards this year - THANK YOU!!!! I appreciate you trusting such a special thing to me and letting me be a little part of your Christmas. 

ONE MORE SLEEP, FRIENDS!!! ONE MORE SLEEP!!!
