I launched my first line of Christmas cards in my Etsy shop on November 1st! Since this is my first line of Christmas cards, I wanted to create simple cards that you can send to any recipient on your Christmas list.
I want to share with you some of my favourite Christmas experiences, so I chose to illustrate four of my favourite things about the winter season.
One of my favourite winter drinks is without a doubt hot chocolate. And I love putting marshmallows in my drink, but then I always struggle with getting them out afterwards!! Anyone else?
Another one of my favourite experiences is putting up the tree. I’m in charge of Christmas in my family, and ever since I started university, my family doesn’t get the tree up until I get home after exam season. That means the tree doesn’t go up until about December 15th, or even as late as the 20th!! Crazy, right?
But decorating the tree with my family can be really fun. My mom collects Christmas ornaments from everywhere she visits. She’s big on travelling, so our family tree is starting to look very well-traveled.
And lastly, this was one of my favourites to paint. Something about wreaths just get me. I love how round they are. Did you know that the circular shape is meant to represent eternal life?
I’d love to hear which card is your favourite! Mine is the hot chocolate one. It makes me feel all warm and cozy inside.
If you’re thinking about sending cards to friends and family who live internationally, now is the time to do so! I’m normally a major procrastinator, but I want to change that this year. I’m starting to think about Christmas *now*, and I want to help you too! Trust me, your future self with thank you.
