Card making and one sleep left!!!!

One sleep to go!!  I am desperately trying to keep myself busy so I don’t drive myself potty.

One thing I do want to do when we move to the new place is to make my own cards, for a variety of reasons.  Firstly, I love crafting and being creative but I barely have had time to do it on 2015, let alone been organised enough to even if I have had the time.  Secondly, it makes me think about the event and it actually means something to me, so whatever is wrote in the card, is from me, not from a mass produced card making factory.  Thirdly, it may not work out cheaper in the long run, but I will do this with my daughter and son, and the time spent with them enjoying a common interest, will be priceless.  I don’t think for a minute that everyone I send the cards to would prefer hand made over factory printed, I know some people are not overly impressed with a jar of home made produce as a gift for example, but it will be made and sent with love and that’s all that matters.

I plan to do this for close family and friends for all special occasions.  The first one is January 22nd when it is my truly good friend’s birthday, closely followed by my daughter’s 9th birthday in February.  I have already decided on what card I’d like to make for my friend.  I’ll post pics when I get the items and start making it.

DD’s birthday in February is being planned and of course, will be a little get together at home, our new home!

  1. I make almost all my cards. No they don't work out cheaper but the whole process for me is relaxation. The hardest cards to make are for males! I cannibalise and reuse all cards friends and family save for me.

  2. Be-careful once you send a hand made card you can never go back to purchasing them, I did not make many this Christmas as was told off by family, they look forward to see what I make them. Good luck for tomorrow, it's the start of the rest of your life. I can't wait to read you post of how you create your home.
