Christmas Cards



My cards arrived from Minted and I couldn’t be happier! I recently picked up a cheap little pen and ink set with ideas of writing all the addresses on my envelopes and I was thinking it was a little crazy and I probably wouldn’t be able to do it…until I actually played around the with quill and became totally obsessed. It was before my cards arrived so I amused myself one evening practicing by writing a pretend Christmas card list (yeah, that’s totally normal right?) I love writing with this little quill pen so much that I told Tom I was going to pack it and the pot of ink in my purse and pull it out whenever I had to sign receipts. Of course I joke, but normally I just don’t enjoy the act of writing, but something about the quill forces me to write slower? I don’t know what it is, but I love it.
Obviously I am no calligrapher, but it’s very pleasing indeed and after addressing over 25 envelopes today with to and from addresses, I am not burnt out on it either, I just want to write more.
Ok so I wanted to share with you my Santa Claus photo booth pictures. You can print it out on photo paper (I had mine done at Staples) and cut them into strips to tuck into cards, use as a holiday bookmark, etc.
