Home-made Christmas cards

I wouldn´t say that I´m a very creative person. Arts and craft was always something that I struggled with in school.

However, sometimes I get this burst of creative energy that needs to be released by cutting paper, mixing and matching colours, experimenting with different types of materials, glue and stickers.

AND the satisfaction one gets from seeing the end product? Priceless.

So this year, I decided to continue my tradition of making my own Christmas cards. Man, if I didn´t enjoy doing it so much, it doesn´t make much sense, economically-speaking, since the materials cost a BOMB here!

However, yeah I´m still old-fashioned in that I believe that a proper card beats an e-card hands down and a home-made card still beats a mass-produced, commercialized card.

Or maybe I´m just influenced by all those German women who DIY almost everything by themselves!

So if you receive one of my 15 limited edition cards this year, you know that you´re precious to me and you´re worth the effort I´ve put in to design and hand-make them for YOU!

Some of my favourite designs for your viewing pleasure:-

What do you think? Could I start up my own card-making business?? hee. Want one of my cards? Drop me a message on my blog and I´ll choose one person to send a card to!
