This year I'm displaying some of the photo cards we've received on my back staircase. These stairs come down into the hallway we enter from the garage so we pass it many times a day. I'd seen the clothespin ribbon garland on Pinterest and gave it a try (click here for the link). The poster on Pinterest hung the ribbon horizontally, but I found the large clothespins plus a card made the ribbon droop, so I hung mine vertically. I have a card holder for the non-photo cards and any that didn't fit on my ribbon, but I love the way this looks.
Back to our card...
It's something of a challenge getting all four of us in the same place at the same time in the weeks leading up to Christmas. It means I really have to plan when it comes to our card. We were all together at Thanksgiving, but we've done the traditional Thanksgiving indoor shot before, and I really wanted an outdoor picture.
Which is why our photo this year is full of contradiction. We took the picture in August and it was a tad warm. It was hubs idea to add the bows to our plant hanger and outdoor love seat, and my crafty Daughter1 made the cute Christmas bunting.
I like this picture.
Everyone looks happy.
Course if you received this card in real life you'd be able to read our names, but I don't use names on my blog, hence the squiggles.
If you're reading here, please know the wishes are sincere...may you experience real peace and joy this Christmas season and in the new year ahead.
