Christmas cards

Everywhere I go the question always is "Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?"  Fortunately Andrew's and my shopping is nearly complete.  However, we haven't sent any packages or cards to England yet so I hope we're not late!
Check out some Christmas cards I designed. 

As much as I love this time of year it's sooo busy!
So I started to make a list of daily accomplishments alongside my mile long to-do list.

So far today would look something like this:
* washed the dishes
* wrapped some presents
* blog post
* Avery playdate
This is my new therapy!  It feels good to see I am getting things done!
Making these Christmas cards are an accidental hobby of mine.  I was editing Julie's family pictures and thought it'd be fun to make collages and then they look really cute all Christmas-y and next thing I know it, I'm designing cards.  Have you ever discovered a hobby or talent without seeking it?


  1. They look great! You did a marvelous job!

  2. They're called Ta Done lists with the Ta Daa sound effect. We don't give ourselves enough credit for what we do do.;) some days not strangling the kiddos is a major achievement!

    1. Ha ha! Good to know. Now I know it's normal :)

  3. I love the first card!! What did you design them in?

    1. Thanks! I made the photo collages at and did the text and siziing through Inkscape. They are both free programs. Should I do a tutorial?
