choices choices

Every year I have made a resolution to send out Christmas cards.  I spend hours thinking & sketching out ideas for the most amazing card - something unique & fun & full of our personalities & oh I've had some really cute ideas BUT then December comes, the month slips away & I get disappointed that I didn't make time to make my own so I just end up not sending any out.  Lame, I know.  I followed suit this year but instead of just giving up I decided to just buy some...a compromise of sorts because I picked mine out on Etsy (still handmade just not by me).  

I have a weakness for letterpress & oh boy! are there some fun ones to choose from.  Here are some that I fancied while browsing:


Oh & in case you are wondering we settled on these little handsome guys.  My husband actually had an opinion & he said he liked these "because he has always liked bears"...haha! works for me!!

Now for next year, I solemnly vow to (try) to make my own christmas cards! Which reminds me, I have actually been working on my list of "things to accomplish in 2011," the list is growing daily, it may be a busy year!  I will share my mountain of a list soon! Happy Thursday-almost-Friday!!! xo.
