happy holidays!

Hello! Just wanted to pop in and wish you all a wonderful holiday!

My Christmas cards finally went out earlier this week. I made my own again this year. This time I used as many photos as I could to document a year's worth of memories. I went through all my photos of the past year and picked my faves. As you can see most of them are of the girls. But we did include our annual family portrait in front of our maple tree as the main photo.

In a departure from previous cards, I also included my version of the Christmas letter. A top 10 list of our favorite memories. This might be my favorite card yet.

The journaling card and banner are by Paislee Press. Fonts used: Ranger, Kingthings Typewriter, and Pacifico.

 What have been up to besides making and sending out Christmas cards? Well, I've been busy with my shop and everything that goes along with that: making new items, writing tutorials, creating a newsletter, and blogging on my catshy crafts blog. Definitely a labor of love. I love what I do! So I'm sorry I haven't updated my papercat blog in a while. But if you would like to peek at my other blog, here's a peek at what you will find: 4 brand-new tutorials, updates on my new Catshy Crafts items and new features like: Etsy Love Mondays, Thankful Tuesday ands Thrifty Thursdays!

I hope you will check it out!  Here are quick links to keep in touch.

Some of my fave fall photos from 2011.

As you may know, I have a little maple tree.
I am thankful for this maple tree.
It brings us shade on the hot summer months.
It brings us color in the fall.
It bring the whole family together for our annual fall portrait.
It gives us lots of opportunities to enjoy each other's company: playing in the leaves, raking the leaves, climbing its limbs, photos and more photos.
It even displays my Christmas lights come holiday season.

Thank you, maple tree for all you do!

p.s. I was inspired to write this post by this post.
