There have been a few people in my life who have acted like second parents, second grandparents and mentors through me throughout the years. One of the most prominent of these people has been Tiega (tee-guh), Aubrey’s grandmother. She’s always so bubbly and hosting parties and having people over for dinner. Ever since I can remember, her house has been like another home to me. There’s always food in the fridge (good food), there’s always food in the freezer (good food) and there are always snacks (good snacks). I got the chance to head over to her house over this “Christmas Break” to catch up with Aubrey and Kristine (another one of our best friends), and I was reminded all over again 1) how architectural detaily comfortable/woodsy/country/traditional/homey/arts & craftsy her home is – I’m sure there will be a post about that at a later time and 2) how incredible it looks at Christmas time with all of the decorative details and festiveness. Hence, this blog entry. I wanted to share with you a little bit of that Christmas spirit, enjoy!!

During my card making process, there are usually some key features of my greeting cards that are similar from card to card. I always try to come up with a unique idea for each card, but there are certain ideas that I just can’t seem to shake. For example, right now I’ve been on a stamping kick – and I’ve bought a few awesome Christmas stamps that I can’t wait to try out. (Actually, let’s stop talking about Christmas – I’m starting to get nervous, I’ve got 1 month + 12 days to make +100 Christmas Cards. This is why I get so many PTO days, right?)
Back to what we were originally talking about – my top 4 key features from the past few weeks. Check it out.
(1) Small cutout square letters pasted on small cutout square paper
(2) Tiny polka dots
(3) Large colorful polka dots
(4) Big print ending with a period
