Once upon a time making gifts/cards/presents was cheaper than purchasing manufactured items.
Apparently, that was so last century.
Or the century before.
Either way, it isn’t today. And yet, I still have it in my head that I should make homemade Christmas cards. So I spent $55 for supplies instead of buy-in a box for $10 (this year’s edition, not last years). This year’s haul:
Sure, I can reuse the stamps and I suppose there is something relaxing about coloring the images I cut out by hand. (Youtube said I could use a rolling pin, two quilting mats and some tape. Youtube lied.)
Ah, who am I trying to kid. I find the whole artistic expression a nice break from wracking my brain for words to paint a picture.
And my mom kinda likes them.
Until next time!
