I did make my Christmas cards but not as early as I said I would, 12/23!! But it worked out in the long run because at the last minute, my sisters decided that we'd do a gift card (hey, that was my idea!) grab bag this year. So instead of making gift card holders, I just made regular Christmas cards. I really enjoyed doing it and I can see myself making more and more cards.......is there a market for homemade cards?? I rarely see them at craft shows or in gift shops. Cards are so personal, it would be hard to make a wide enough variety of cards to be profitable. Maybe if I specialized in one type of card, say birthday or thank you or get well...guess I'll think about it. And of course it would be good to have a large stock of cards before I start offering to sell them......cart before the horse, oops!
Anyway, a few pictures

|I gave this one to my youngest sister, who is very talented in many areas--decorating ,sewing, personal appearance, etc. She raved about it on Christmas day which made my day and again when I saw her several days later. |
Guess she liked it!!
