Christmas Cards of the Past

Last year the kids and I created our Christmas cards.

Each child created a snowman with their fingerprints. Now I would like to claim I came up with this idea all on my own. However, I did not. I was looking for an easy idea for Christmas cards, and I found several pictures of fingerprint snowmen all in a row. What a terrific idea! We can do that! Or so I thought…

However, our snowmen certainly weren’t all in a row. Plus my kids began smudging extra spots onto the cards.

I started to stress out a little. The cards weren’t looking anything like my inspiration pieces.

“Sorry, Mommy.”

“That’s OK. We’ll just make that be a snowball.”

Why didn’t I think of that before? That was genius!

And so the cards depicting a snowball fight amongst my children became my new inspiration.

It even gave me the idea for the words on the card.

“May you have a ball this holiday season.”

And because each of the cards was handmade, each was unique.

Did they turn out like I had planned. No. No, they did not. They turned out even better!

Only At My House,


*Only a few tears were shed during the making of these cards.
**This may be the reason why my husband said, “Please tell me you are not making the Christmas cards again this year”.
***Stay tuned…
