It’s the final day of Thanksgiving weekend and some leftovers are still in the fridge, I’m still in my pajamas, and there are Christmas storage boxes still on the floor…all over the floor. I am a staunch supporter of waiting until after Thanksgiving to begin decorating for Christmas – but I also like to get the tree trimmed and the house holiday-ed before CyberMonday. (Which I shop much more avidly than Black Friday, no pushy people in Santa sweatshirts to bring out my inner Grinch.)
So I’m Christmatizing the house…and I pretty much mean the whole house. From the traditional family tree in the living room to the StarWars tree in what used to be my dining room, to the purple and Tiffany-blue trees in my daughters’ rooms – there’s a whole lotta trimming going on.
This fine Sunday morning I took a break from the decorating to make some Christmas cards. Shutterfly had a great deal of 10 free cards (ends tonight, btw) and since I missed out on their free calendar deal that ended on Friday (still annoyed at myself for that), I figured I’d better order the cards now or be mad at myself tonight.
My favorite Christmas Song is Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (for other favorites, see my TOP 10 page). Hence, the inspiration for the card. Here’s the results, if you’re not lucky enough to get one in the mail, at least you can enjoy it via the magic of the internets!
