Hope you are maintaining your sanity in this crazy hustle and bustle of the season!! I'm not sure I had any sanity to begin with, so can't say I'm maintaining any of my own - ha! It has been very busy though, as it is for everyone at this time of the year. Each year though, I try more and more to really acquaint myself with what's important, and "let go" of the rest. I want to give myself a chance to enjoy the season. Not an easy task, but I continuously remind myself that it only comes once a year, and it seems to come and go so quickly. I try to slow it down just a little bit, and take it all in. Of course there are blips in this "journey" to slow down and enjoy - like the other day when I realized that I needed oh, about double the amount of Christmas cards I had made! Slowing it down went out the window, and was replaced by chaos as I madly made the rest of the cards that I needed! Only two to go now, and I have a bit of time this afternoon, so I should be able to easily get those done, and shift back into "slow it down" mode! And that will include my annual viewing of my favourite movie of all time - nope, it's not one of the great classics - nope! It's The Holiday!! Iris just reminds me SO much of myself and I fall in love with the movie more and more every year!
Okay, I've babbled on for long enough (I haven't posted for a while - I think I'm making up for lost time!)! Time to share some cards!
This is one of the Christmas cards I made in the "oh no, I don't have enough cards frenzy":
This was the only new design - all the rest were just copies of ones I had previously made - no time to come up with something new!
And this is a card I made for a friend. She was telling me about another friend of hers who has cancer (can we just rid the world of that??? Please.) who is going out of country for surgery next week. Her friend loves my friend's dog, named Lexie and it's become a bit of a running theme through her treatment that Lexie is there for her. When she leaves next week for her surgery, my friend wanted to have a little care package waiting for her when she arrives. I asked her if I could make a card to accompany the care package and I was so thrilled that she said yes! Here it is:
I'm going to link both of these up to the PS Anything Goes Challenge! I haven't played along with a challenge for WAY too long!
Thank you for stopping by and enduring my ramblings! Have an awesome day!
