Last December, when I was not making stuff EVER, we began to receive all of the usual holiday cards. A funny one from the in-laws, a nature photo from D.’s grandfather, and a slew of photo cards that showed off the cuteness of friends’ and family members’ kids. I started to feel guilty. I had not prepared a holiday card featuring my little 7-month old. “Bad Mommy,” was all I could think.
I tried desperately not succumb. I rarely send holiday cards. But I caved, and at the last minute I dashed off some CVS specials featuring my little one the day of her first haircut.
This December however, I make stuff nearly everyday, so I set aside some time to make my holiday cards. I fiddled about in Photoshop Elements, learning new things by making mistakes, and I came up with the image above. Tomorrow will be the printing and card assembling part. I am not making anything too fancy though. That is for next year!
