Xmas series: DIY Christmas cards

We’ve never sent Christmas cards as a couple. It’s weird because we’ve been together for almost thirteen years and married for almost three years now so it was about time, huh? Some weeks ago I decided that this year not only would we send pretty Christmas cards to our friends and family, but also we would make them ourselves! I’m not a very crafty person, that is why I went for the easiest way possible. I am very proud of the result so I thought it would be nice to share the process with you.

Christmas cards 2017

They are here! Our Christmas Cards 2017 ! Ok, let’s not get carried away by enthusiasm because this year there’s no DIY. Even though we managed to create our very own Christmas crown, this year we simply didn’t find the time to DIY our Christmas cards. Why? Because #life. While we wanted to show you a Pinterest worthy DIY, we didn’t have time to prepare it. The truth is that as much as we plan things, sometimes we can’t do it all. I felt really bad because it’s something I love to do and, after 16 years together, I believe I have infected my wife with my histrionic Christmas spirit, but this year I couldn’t make it. Long hours at the office, a nightmare that involves a marathon through German bureaucracy pretty similar to The twelve tasks of Asterix and our firm commitment to our fitness routine made it impossible. Well, all that and the last two seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. We procrastinate too, that’s the truth. We are humans and we are addicted to …
