… and all through the house
The only creature who was stirring
Was Momma. Scrambling to get her Christmas cards done.
I’m such a procrastinator.
As always, I had the best of intentions to get our cards done and out at the first of the month. Obviously, that did not happen.
Truth be told, the whole process would be a lot simpler if I bought the boxed, pre-made cards like I used to do before we had kids. But, apparently, I was smarter back then.
Post kids? I figure I have so much free time on my hands, we I can do stuff like this:
Or this one. Chip’s in this one, if you look closely. This is my personal favorite, by the way:
Or this one. My attempt at going for the more classic, “normal” Christmas card:
Tonight, I finally finished with this year’s cards. Seeing as how there’s a snowball’s chance in hell they would actually arrive by Christmas, I did New Year’s greetings instead of holiday cards. Here’s a sneak peek:
Sadly, I’m still not finished. I still need to print those little suckers, stuff and address them, and then venture into the vortex of doom to the post office for stamps and mailing.
I figure at the rate I’m going, with any luck, the cards should arrive by Valentine’s Day.
But at least I’ll sleep easier tonight knowing they’re almost ready to go. And, with that, I say: “Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night!”
Don’t forget! Just 2 more days to enter the Elf Off if you’re interested. We’ve had some great entries so far. Come join in the fun!
