Strategy for Christmas Cards ?
I am surrounded at home with cardmaking supplies for Christmas ...
What with the Create and Craft shows a couple of weeks ago and the lovely new paper pads and dies being released it's all very surreal ...
I sat in really hot temperatures with the fan blasting away at me preparing samples and demos for Christmas shows. Not only that - every year I say I will make my cards early and every year - yep it gets to the week before Christmas and I only end up making 'special' cards ..
With all this in mind it prompted me to think about how everyone else does it...
So what do you do ?
When do you start yours?
Do you make lots really early and store them away somewhere ?
Do you decide on a 'type' or design and go with it and make them all the same ?
Do you have a date where you have them all made by?
I'm a bit of a - let's see what I've got person and just go with the flow and make cards with what I've got and do it in bits and bobs - put them away somewhere and then forget I made them all those months ago when it gets to 'Chrtistmas'
So this year will be different, my extremely well organised friend Jane suggested we get ourselves sorted and decide what we are going to do early,have a day organising what we will make (this of course involves a weeny bit of research shopping) and then we can make them all - job done!
Being a crafter means I have all the products at my fingertips really - so there is no excuse is there??
I really would be very interested to hear what others do out there.. any hints and tips would be greatly appreciated !
