...later that same day
November is also the month where you decide if you'll be creative with your Christmas cards or just totally cave to convenience and get something cheesy and uninspiring from the Hallmark store. Year after year I stand in the store trying to find something worth sending. Perhaps the picture is sweet, but the sentiment inside is trite. Or the message is meaningful, but the outside is hideous. Possibly, the card is perfect! Ideal! But there's only one box of 18 and I need five more boxes.
Two Christmases in a row, several years ago, I decided I would just make my own. I designed the front and made up my own sentiment inside. I took them to a printer and had them make what I needed--plus a couple of extra. It was the best decision I ever made and, had I been thinking clearly, I might have done it again. But I didn't, and I probably won't. And don't get me started on the fact that no one has taken the picture of the kids that goes INSIDE the card.
Please...someone tell me they feel as overwhelmed as I do.
