The holidays are here! It’s been so nice to have mornings with fireplace roaring and the Christmas tree lights twinkling (although this morning I managed to break my second ornament by getting my hair caught in a branch.) But besides tangled hair mishaps, it’s been so fun to take part and enjoy this season. And in light of the holidays, I designed two holiday cards for you! Whether your want to send out five or five hundred, these cards are easy to personalize with your own photo, and I’ve included step-by-step directions below.
