My Great Christmas Card Delusions
Every year I have grand ideas for my Christmas card. I want at least two photos (or more). I would like some room for a little snippet of the year's goings-on. Something very brief, very light and possibly funny. Plus I want some unique, delightful and awe-inspiring design (but not too over the top). And I want it to be cheap...but beautifully printed.
So yes. I struggle. Every year. Blast. I have now designed three different cards. Completely different. And not one meets all of my criteria. Well one does, but I think it's kind of awkward yet. It just doesn't flow. Plus I can't come up with anything new or funny or exciting or different to say about 2011. It kind of just happened without me knowing it.
I may or may not have been working on the card for weeks. And re-writing snippets in my head, on my cell phone and on scrap pieces of paper. It's just not coming together this year. Apparently I need to let go of something. But what...The dumb things I get stressed about. Seriously. I hate it when I hold myself hostage to indecisions over something so trivial. Especially because I can't ever seem to give it up.
I think I'll just start over again.
In the meantime, here are some sweet photos of a very sweet girl.
