If you are the kind of woman who makes beautiful hand-made Christmas cards, I am so in awe of you. Seriously. I am not you. Not even close. I admire you tremendously. I used to have grand plans for somehow being organized and inspired enough to make beautiful Christmas cards for all of the people on my Christmas card mailing list. This summer I finally let go of those visions of myself...I shipped all of my scrapbook paper to my sister...and let go of the pressure.
One dollar and half an hour later (a half hour during which I watched/listened to the Sing-Off with my kids), I'd embellished my Christmas cards. Glitter was successfully added to Santa's hat, sleeves, and coat. I love the way they turned out (even though the pictures are terrible!).
Cut yourself some slack and "cut corners"...semi-home-made is good enough...really!
