As you may recall, one of my 2012 resolutions (which can be seen here) was to do more DIY projects. I was a bit disappointed in myself that I never got my act together in December and didn't get out any Christmas cards - I didn't even go to a store to buy them. I was trying to think of something that would allow me to be creative, but also do something nice for people- so I thought it would be fun to start making homemade cards for birthdays and other special occasions. I've actually really enjoyed putting together cards and thinking about who is receiving the card and make it for them based things I know they like or just something that makes me think of them. I love having a creative outlet that is not overwhelming, but fun to spend a little time crafting without making me feel like I've tried to take on too much too fast.
