Remember my post about feeling behind on the Christmas front? Well I have rectified that somewhat over the past few days. I've almost finished my Christmas shopping, I've seen some new Christmas ornaments I want to add to my collection and I bought my Christmas cards.
The good people at Etsy finally came through for me and started listing their holiday wares. I purchased a good selection from the fun and frivolous to the sappy and schmaltzy. All of them are letterpress (coz that's how I roll).
Here's what I got:
Silver Wonderland from ArticulationsEvents: $18 for 10
Red Brocade from ArticulationsEvents: $18 for 10
Happy Holidays Holly from byvikINK: $16 for 6
Partridge in a Pear tree from byvikINK: $16 for 6
I kept the choices to two sellers to try and minimise postage costs (things can get a bit expensive when buying from the US) But all up I did get them for under $3 a card which was my goal. I don't do presents for a lot of people, other than close friends and family but I do like to send cards to thank people for their friendship and support through the year. Christmas is a nice time of year to stop and think about the important people in our lives and I find writing cards not only helps me appreciate people more but also lets them know I care about them.
Still no Holiday tree in our house but we'll start working on that front shortly.
