Pickles & Chapstick: holiday cards

holiday cards

I just wanted to quickly share our holiday card this year. I decided to do my own little photo shoot w/Charlie. I had every intention of creating the card but since I'm swamped in card projects as we speak, I decided to find a design I liked best online. I decided to use tinyprints. They had a lovely selection and I enjoyed being able to pick the color envelope I wanted. They also were pretty darn speedy with delivering them too!

I may be a little "MIA" this week. Charlie and I leave on Saturday for our trip back east. We're leaving a few days earlier than papa bear so that means extra prepping. Those extra hands are always helpful when traveling so when you don't have them, you need to pack smart. I also have a few projects that I need to wrap up before I leave. This past weekend something happened. I started feeling "off". I was at a family party on Saturday night and I could barely eat or drink and if I sat down, I was fearful I'd fall asleep. Sunday I spent the entire day napping on the couch. The last time I did that was when Green Bay won the Super Bowl almost two years ago! So I'm listening to the doctor's orders of keeping the "stressing out" to a minimum, no marathon training, eat regularly (so hard but so important) & nap when Charlie does. Guess this is the "season" for wearing yourself out (or so I was told today). Here's to hoping I can relax while snacking on candy cane joe-joe's. Speaking of those, I'm almost out. Grrr.
