As part of our Christmas preparations this year I decided to make our cards. Like all crafty jobs, this was a simpler thing to say than it’s proving to do, but I’ve made a solid start this week. I’d say I’m about one-quarter to one-third of the way through, and am enjoying making simple cards to my own design. I think I’ll enjoy writing and sending them all, and I love that as they are blank I have ample space to write a ‘proper’ message (if I’m sending cards I like to write a wee missive). I adore sending and receiving cards at Christmas – Matthew always jokes that it’s my favourite part! What can I say, my stationery addiction runs deep….
Here are a few of the cards I’ve made so far – very simple as I’m a novice crafter – but a fun way to spend a half hour here or there of an evening. Little by little the Christmas preparations continue.
Not the snazziest cards in the world, but I like them!
One big basket of 50 cards, ready to go! I’m in love with these little baskets too, perfect for holding ingredients, crafting supplies or papers – 3 for £2 in Asda. I’m such a sucker for a cute bit of storage.
Are you crafting/making anything for Christmas? Some of my friends are super, super crafty and will be doing some major knitting/sewing/creating just now!
PS Thanks for the sweet comments (and emails) on my last post. It’s great to know I’m not alone in this little season. And crafting is very therapeutic…
