I have one goal for November, which is pretty good considering we are already a week in. 😉
My one goal this month is to…drum roll please…
Make handmade Christmas cards!!
So here’s the thing; we are a family that sends out Christmas cards. I know some people think it’s an outdated tradition or they send e-cards *shudder*, but I like Christmas cards. I like to send them out and I look forward to receiving them in the mail.
But I was also looking for ways to save some money on them as the holiday budget can get a little cuckoo if one is not careful. So I thought about it and I realized that I had everything I needed already to make the cards!
See, a few years ago, I had planned to make Christmas cards from scratch. I had purchased the blank cards and envelopes and already had some stuff in my scrapbooking bin to get ’em done. But I didn’t plan out a schedule to make them. I kept putting them off and putting them off and then it was too late; I had run out of time to make the cards and had to go to the store to purchase them.
But not this year!
I have already started on some cards and I have the whole month of November to get them done. Ambitious, crafty, and frugal all mixed into one!
No extra money being spent, I free up some items in my scrapbooking bin, and my friends and family get some homemade crafty goodness from yours truly ♥
So in between watching my sports teams play this month, I will be on the couch making Christmas cards.
The holiday will be here before ya know it!
