Thinkin’ Christmas

by

It’s August so I don’t even have the “Christmas in July” excuse, but for some reason the holidays have been on my mind! I even picked up a few Christmas gifts today while shopping for supplies (gotta grab it while it’s on sale!). As a completely custom stationery business, I do holiday cards but I don’t have to deal with drop dates and advance orders from retailers. Still, I’d eventually love to produce more greeting cards and come up with a holiday line since it is my absolute favorite time of year.

Again, there’s no real reason for me to think about Thanksgiving or Christmas now except for the fact that I love to enjoy the actual holidays themselves (when they’re happening) so advance organization is key. One weapon in my arsenal: organized christmas.com. I certainly don’t take advantage of all this site has to offer, but I do love their Christmas Countdown printable calendar and checklists. I’m sure it’s a little over the top, but honestly it’s helped me feel less stressed at holiday time. This were my personal cards last year. Gotta love the October photo shoot I did with my girls when the Hanna Andersson stripey Christmas jammies arrived in the mail. Sometimes that’s all it takes to catch the Christmas spirit!

  1. Oh, I hear ya! The holidays have been on my mind all of last week and this week. I’m expecting it won’t go away for sometime. The leaves are starting to slight change here in my neck of the “woods” — so that helps me get into the mood!

  2. Merry Xmas Erin – we are all over Xmas at the moment too! In the 90 degree heat, seeing a reindeer or a candy cane cools me right down!
