I used to do so much. I was reminiscing over photos this week while making memorial boards and wow were my girls cute babies 😀 Had to say it, every mom does and every mom means it! While sifting through photos, though, I ran across other stuff. Scans and photos of cards and scrapbook pages…things I made with my own two hands. Not beds I made or meals I made, but artsy crafty fun things! I actually made a business out of it and was featured several times for the company I sold product for (any other former or current Stampin’ Up! demos out there?) I had a downlineof amazing gals, traveled some, and simply enjoyed it. Sigh, I miss it, but wouldn’t trade today for any of it 🙂 Here, share memory lane with me…my kids really were cute…I said that already:
And,just so you are sure to know my kids do not get their adorable looks from me:
Did you notice something, no as in ZERO scans of pages with the twins. While time does dull the memory, I wonder why I didn’t manage to scrapbook or create something, anything the last two years! I know, twin infants, food issues, family, etc. But I just can’t believe I dropped it all and haven’t visited back.
Okay, back to today, laundry, cleaning, many home-cooked meals, and little craft time.
So with the holidays coming up, every starts thinking Christmas cards. I LOVE homemade Christmas cards with a passion. I can describe the ones I made for years in a row, I can tell you about the ones I’ve received, and yet I have an embarrassing confessions. It’s been at minimum two years since I’ve sent cards. I know, I can’t believe it myself. I love Christmas time, I enjoy hearing from family near and far or friends that we barely see anymore. Now for 2006 I have a good excuse (spent Dec. in Vietnam adoption twins), however last year not so much. In a last ditch attempt to get some sort of card in the mail to close loved-ones I purchased cards last year and they STILL didn’t make it out. Yeah, pitiful. I was so close last year. I had cards, a little letter so I wouldn’t feel guilty just signing our names and sending them out, and prints of this photo:
So to help kick you all in gear, I know you’ll need to print of photos to send in those cards this year. I’m giving away FOUR cards each good for 10 free prints at any HP Photosmart Express Kiosk. You can print some off for in your cards, make a couple photo gifts, scrapbook them, frame them for all I care….just do SOMETHING with them. Otherwise you’ll be like me and have a stack of prints from last Christmas that your thinking of putting in this years cards just because you still have them (along with the twins’ adoption announcements…yeah, 2007 and 2008 have been stellar years for me being on the ball with this type of stuff!)
