happiness. . .and chaos!

Hello hello!!! How cute are these trees? They are a rub-on, from BoBunny, which is featured in the Discount Cardstock Posh Paper kit for December! The sentiment and snowflakes are also rub-ons. This card is based on Tami's CPS sketch #196.

Every year, I think about sending out Christmas cards. I don't think we've done it since before Mr. B was born SIX years ago! And then I consider sending out New Years cards. . .and then Valentines. (Which I did manage to accomplish two years ago!) I feel badly, because I LOVE getting Christmas cards in the mail. I love seeing everyone's pictures, and catching up on their year. But I am always scrambling to get it done, and this year especially, we just can't afford the added expense. Despite that, I AM going to try and use up all my misc holiday cards that I make throughout the year. But instead of mailing cards, I am going to use an actual handmade Christmas card attached to people's gifts instead of a tag. It's ridiculous to have a giant stack of cards hanging around that never get used. (Declutter, declutter, declutter!)

And who knows, since this year I'm not even ATTEMPTING to send out cards. . .watch, this will be the year that I actually feel like I have time and motivation to do it. (Well, maybe not!)

I am now off to make superhero capes for Bryce's birthday party this weekend. It truly is THE holiday season around this house! Birthdays, and Christmas - OH MY!
