I have grand ideas every year of getting Christmas cards out to all our friends and family. Every year it turns December 20th and I realize that I’ve dropped the ball and not sent out any. It’s a cycle. This year, I’m bound and determined to not only do it, but also to make it more fun. My children and I have decided to make homemade Christmas cards to give a more personalized touch to them.  I think there’s almost nothing better when checking your mail to discover a sweet, handmade surprise waiting for you!
