25 Days of Christmas: Holiday Cards

Don’t judge my graphics! Be nice, goodwill to all (wo)men and all that. Clearly, design of any sort is not my strength, but I went for it anyway.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t really receive Christmas cards. I’ve had a few random ones here and there, but the last time I got a bunch was back in my school days when you brought them in for the whole class and attached those tasty mini candy canes to them. You know what I’m talking about, right? Oh, the days when life was easy.

We’re all grown up now – or at least, like me, pretending to be – and while we may not be handing out Power Ranger cards to our classmates, we can still send them out to friends and family. This is my third year sending them out (I send them to some friends, family members and the parents of my closest friends, as well) and I just dropped mine in the mail on Monday. I think it’s a great way to show people that you care and that you’re thinking about them. We’re early enough in the season that even if it takes your card a few days to get there, it can be enjoyed or displayed for a few weeks. The best part? We’ve graduated from Lisa Frank, Barbie and the aforementioned Power Rangers. In my low budget graphic above are a few of my favorites this year.

From left to right:

  1. Tuxedo Gal – Mae B Online, $20.00 (reg $25)
  2. Gold Foil Peace Love Joy – Paper Source, $14.21 (reg $18.95)
  3. Here Comes Santa – Veronica Marche, $13.50
  4. Snowman Merry Christmas – Papyrus, $12.95

Only problem now is that you’re going to need stamps…

Let me know if you send cards out during the holiday season and what some of your favorites are this year.

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
