The last Thank You card is going in the mail this morning, (yesssssssss), and as promised, I’m rewarding myself with the posting of our New Years cards.
New Years cards are great. They say,” we were thinking of you and want to spread good tidings and warm fuzzy thoughts to you and your family;” but see here’s the thing… you don’t have to send them out BEFORE Christmas! It’s genius! You can send them in January and no one thinks they are late. If you can keep a secret, New Years cards are just “holiday” cards that are overdue… see where I’m headed here?
Does anyone else ever get nostalgic for your gocco screens once you’re done printing a project? they are so neat, but so fleeting… their life cycle I mean. I love these colors, especially the bright orangey pink. I think it’s one of my current favorites. So I am commemorating it’s short life here on my weblog.
(Don’t ask why I used a plastic fork to mix the paint. It was all I could find at that moment, okay?)
Also, aside from playing in paint and mixing pretty colors that don’t come in tubes, even from japan, we have the actual cards:
And our custom greeting that I bet no one else sent this year. huh? huh?
So that’s them. I kind of secretly wanted to line the envelopes will all sorts of pinky red patterned papers, but that was sounding completely insane as I plodded my way through the Thank You list. See, even former brides have limits. Not many, I admit, but they are there… watching over us, keeping our crazed post-wedding brains in check. The plan is, next year I start lining the envelopes early, say October, before my brain realizes it’s a bad idea. So crafty I am.
