Want to see a sneak peak at our Christmas Cards this year? Normally I’d have them addressed and hanging in people’s homes by this point; however, I’m a little behind the game this year. I absolutely love how they turned out and can’t wait to sit down this weekend and get them in the mail.
I used the picture from our Adoption announcement this year. It really encapsulates what our year has been focused on as we get our home ready for a future baby. The black chalkboard background is a fun and unique aspect to the card as well. I love how my metallic marker really comes through! If you’re looking to make your own Christmas cards this year, check out all the awesome templates available at Staples and save 20% with code HOLIDAY20, the longest part of the process is deciding which template is your favorite.
I’ve talked before about how I love to give personalized gifts. Christmas is definitely no exception to this rule. Staples has some awesome personalized Christmas gifts available this year (and now through December 26th you can save 20% using code JOLLY20). I was trying to think of a unique stocking stuffer for Brad this year and thought that this personalized glass tumbler is a great option! It was so easy to create – simply upload a picture and it is done! These would be great gifts for dads, grandpas, or college students.
While I was working on cards and gifts, I also wanted to make something special for our tree. These were also so easy to make and could easily be personalized to match your holiday decor. I picked a round ornament which is double sided, the picture is from our adoption announcement photo shoot which will be a great symbol for this year on our tree in the future.
