Cute Homemade Christmas Cards

Cute Homemade Christmas Cards
I love cute homemade christmas cards. I am not cutting and pasting anything at home but this is about as close to homemade it is getting for us! Christmas Cards are one of the hardest things for me to do so I have to start early. The indecision is so real as to what photos to choose, what designs to pick and of course what to wear. I am a fan of the silly Christmas sweaters and the home-ly  feeling. I want my Christmas card to invite you into our everyday life so we usually just shoot them ourselves or ask Bennies Dad and we keep it really casual. Of course I dragged everyone out of bed to go take photos before the snow melted.

Cute Homemade Christmas Cards

Christmas 2015 was the first time we took photos and now with Langston it was really fun to get some pictures of us all just goofing around. We went up the Gurten, its a small mountain about 5 minutes from our home.

Something about the holiday season just makes me want to wear festive colors and be a bit silly.

This Cape Though…

Can we take a minute to talk about how much I love this cape! I picked it up back in 2014 when my boss at the time used to shop at HSN like crazy. I never shopped on a day in my life but she, to this day dresses impeccably and no one ever has the same stuff she has, and she finds great deals so one day she sent me a sale email and I fell into the black whole of HSN and this is one of the many items I bought that day! I love this cape, I actually bought two. This one is by the Sharif Couture and the other one is by Imani.  Look at this suede one, it is my favorite!

Let me know which design you like best! You can check out some beautiful Holiday cards over at 
I used minted to make these and I may be bias but I think these are such cute homemade christmas cards!

  3. I really need to not be lazy and do this next year! Usually I hand make all my Christmas cards but I was too busy this year and just bought boxed cards to give out. But I’m going to be better organized next year…
