Christmas Cards

I spent alllll day today making Christmas cards. I made some the other day, and thought that today would just be spent writing on them and finishing them up. But it turns out that they were UG-LY. So I made new ones... annnnnnd I kinda love them.

I used embroidery thread and stitched snowflakes on most of the tree cards, and stitched hooks onto all of the ornaments. It was fun.

I like them. I'm pretty happy I didn't use the first ones I made... Blech.

I love our Christmas tree, too. I almost think it looks prettier without the lights on during the day when you can see the berries and... green things... whatever they are :)

This picture does not do it justice. The flash is much too harsh and it doesn't look as great as it does in person, but I LOOOVE it.

...But I kind of can't wait for Christmas to be over so we can get rid of these presents!! I'd keep tree up all year, but the presents need to go.
