Shop Talk: Christmas Cards Now For Sale (and a giveaway!)



Happy Monday, y'all!

Sorry for the blog silence the past two weeks, but I promise, I had a good reason......I turned my condo into a Christmas Card factory!

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have been celebrating a little known holiday......#Hallowxmas. It's what you do when you are furiously trying to prepare for Christmas season while respecting one of the greatest holidays of the year, Halloween. How do you celebrate #Hallowxmas? Well, it looks a lot like making Christmas cards while watching classic movies like Halloween and catching up on the Walking Dead. And sip your favorite apple cider.

It's quite a celebration.

But, that's last month peeps. This month-I am going ALL IN on the December holidays! This morning my 2014 Christmas cards went live in my Etsy shop! Today I thought I would share a few peeks so you can get an idea of what I have to offer!


Owl Pals- hand stamped and colored, these little cuties I imagine are singing a few carols, maybe thinking about what they will ask for from Santa? Available in sets of 5 and as individual cards! 


Do you love Buddy the Elf? This movie is a must watch for me every year and I have never seen cards like this in the store, so I decided to make some myself! (spoiler alert-if you are on my Xmas card list.......; ) ). I pulled together a random assortment of papers, so each card set or individual card is a true one of a kind! 


 If you are looking for something a little more traditional or classic? I made this set inspired by stores like Pottery Barn. The pictures here do not do them justice, really. The inks I used are vibrant and smooth and the combination of gold, taupe and red is so beautiful. Also available in sets or singles.

This year I am thrilled to offer 4 sets of cards by my good friend Alicia! Her style is modern, but with a nod to traditional, featuring hand painted images reflecting her religious background. They are perfect, in my opinion- she even created a gorgeous set of Thanksgiving cards! 

NOW FOR A GIVEAWAY! 

 To celebrate #HALLOWXMAS for 2014 I want to give one lucky winner a set of 3 single cards and a stocking to keep them in. All created in the Hot Wheels factory. For a chance to win- tell me how you would celebrate #Hallowxmas (wrapping presents while eating candy corn? singing carols in your Halloween costume? Really, the possibilities are endless...). Make sure to include your email address (in the form, not shared with readers) and I will pick a winner next Monday (Nov. 17th)

Make sure to check out ALLLLLLL the holiday fun in the shop HERE.

May you have all the spookiness and glad tidings of this wonderful time of year!
xoxo,
