Two down, sixty-three to go.

Christmas cards, that is.

Yup, I'm making my Christmas cards again this year. It seems a rather late start and a rather large undertaking considering the colds and infections making the rounds in our house lately, plus the normal busyness of the holiday season and also having a seventeen month old, especially since they really should be out by around the first of December to make sure they're delivered on time...but I enjoy making cards, and my friend and I are working on them together, so it should be fun. We started last night, the kids watched Annie (well, we had the table set up so we could watch Annie too, and sing along, of course!) while we worked.

So...you're probably thinking something along the lines of, "Dragonfly, if you worked last night, why do you only have two cards done? If you're making sixty-five cards, you might want to make a few more than just two a night."

But I did work hard last night. I made over half of my envelopes!

Yeah..not only am I making 65 cards, I'm making 65 envelopes too!!!

I'm a new kind of super hero! You can call me..

I think I'm going to go take a nap...

  4. Since I will get to see you shortly after Xmas (yippee! yippee! yippee!!!!!!!) you could not send us one and save yourself one card and one envelope. ;)

  6. Oh my goodness. I gave up that hassle and opted for an email letter several years ago -- and realized I also started saving myself about $50 in expense! postage, printer ink (I always typed out a letter), the paper, the cards, etc. Kudos to you!

  10. I made envelopes one year. I decided to never do it again. Good luck with that!

    And oh no, it's NOT too late. Mine are BARELY stared, plus I have 400 programs to make for the church Christmas program and 100 wedding invitations that need to be mailed in January. You are ROCKING!

  11. I am terribly impressed with your challenge. However, if you finish them they are so much better than the same old store bought cards. GOOD LUCK!

  12. I'm impressed. This year I decided to go easy on myself and got my daughter to paint on some cards. We also bought a packet of cards for the people, who are unlikely to appreciate the "toddler drawn" ones.
