Make Christmas Cards | Day 2 Creative Christmas Countdown

Day 2 Dilly Dali ArtHandmade Christmas cards are so sweet to receive, and Aleacia of Dilly Dali Art will really get you inspired! She’s even doing a link-up so we can see the cards other families create too!

Here’s the truth about me and Christmas cards: I feel fine about not having them done until we get the first one in the mail.  Then I kinda panic.  We got our first card yesterday. SO, let the panic card making begin!

Christmas Cards Day 2

Learn how to make six different artistic Christmas Cards!

Actually, as many readers know, I’m focusing on connection not perfection this year so here’s what I’m doing to avoid the panicking-about-Christmas-cards:

  • I finally made a document in Google docs with a list of people I’m giving gifts to, and an address list for cards.  Better late than never, right?
  • I’ve cut down the “card list” considerably.  Well, ok,  last year with a new baby I sent zero cards, and I’m not sending very many this year….
  • We’ll only be hand-making a few of ours as the kids have very limited patience if I do any pushing.
  • For the rest I’m be making a photo collage in Picasa (very easy to do) and printing that for a card.

No panicking, and I am totally excited about Aleacia’s ideas!

    Great ideas for connection not perfection! Laura from Art for Little Hands suggested that they would make Christmas cards for only the grandparents, I love that idea! and I bet the grandparents would love it too :)

    Great advice about the computerised lists – I’ve been meaning to do this since our first christmas as a couple – 7 years later and still haven’t. I WILL do it this year
