You know, it's amazing how, once you start getting into photography, you realize what you can do with your pictures! I looked at the Christmas cards in the store, and thought to myself "Self, why are you buying someone else's photo" "Don't be so lazy!"

Last week, Petra invited me (bullied me into it, really) a wreath making class at our church. My pine and balsam trees generously donated the boughs for the whole class...so I figured I'd go and check it out.

Here's my wreath, and I kind of like it! I'm not usually so Martha-ish, but this I do like. I didn't bother with the fancy shmancy bows and ribbons and birds and crap, I just like it plain.

Yes,yes, we are going to do the traditional family photo Christmas card. But I think this photo will be my "Happy Holiday" card. (isn't that the politically correct phrase these days) You know, the card you always need when someone invites you over for Christmas Cheer, and you don't want to give them the dorky photo of yourself card....do I make sense? :-) Or the card to go with the teachers' gifts...you know what I mean.

Is this a blogging site? Whew, good thing with all that blah blah blah-ing, isn't it? ;-)

Happy Holidays, FT friends! In case you're counting, there are 34 more shopping days...

Yes Hans it is hanging on the front of the house, beside the front door, actually. Our front door is all glass, which makes hanging a wreath somewhat challenging :-) Thanks!!!

Tee hee, Maria I hear you. Nightmare!

I have ordered a few things online, but I still get a kick (one day per year only) of browsing the stores, taking in all of the chaos that Christmas has become. I do, however go without children and husband. It's an alone day, maybe thats why I like it so much! :-)

Nahhh Kaatje you will probably get the dorky family photo card. Sorry about your luck, there, hon. There is always Christmas Cheer being served here, you know that! Pop in's encouraged and expected, and Cheer will always be served - that's our policy! :-)

Petra is exactly right. I believe you can buy cards that have a slot for your photos already.
