As the hol­i­day sea­son ap­proaches, I’m look­ing for­ward to tree shop­ping, food prepa­ra­tion, gift-giv­ing and fam­ily gath­er­ings with a new sense of ex­cite­ment. You see, our fam­ily grew by one this past year, and this will be my first Christ­mas as a grand­mother! It’s go­ing to be so much fun to have a lit­tle one in the house again for Christ­mas. Through the years, my fam­ily has es­tab­lished some fun hol­i­day tra­di­tions, and I look for­ward to pass­ing those on to another gen­er­a­tion.

What are you look­ing most for­ward to this hol­i­day sea­son? Is it the full week­end spent with your mom, sis­ters, aunts and friends bak­ing good­ies and treats to share that is the high­light of the sea­son? Is it the search through the lo­cal Christ­mas tree farm for the per­fect pine? Is it the even­ing spent fin­ish­ing your gift wrap­ping while sip­ping yummy hot co­coa and watch­ing all your fa­vorite hol­i­day movies? (That may or may not be me on Christ­mas Eve Eve!) Or is it a quiet day soak­ing in the won­der of the Christ­mas sea­son and re­flect­ing on the year that has passed?

What­ever it is that this time of year em­bod­ies for you, it’s our hope that the days are filled with good friends and fam­ily, that your cel­e­bra­tions are joy­ful … and that all your cards are hand­made!

From the en­tire CardMaker team, Merry Christ­mas! Un­til next time,
