Did you know that in addition to offering greeting cards, we also do custom orders for any occasion? I am currently working on a wedding collection of invitations and all the other fun stuff that goes along with them. The invites will ship in individual boxes instead of envelopes because of the flowers. The overall card is approximately 5 x 7. Here is a peek at the invitation:
Next up: response cards. Stay tuned!!

You guys, I HATE getting manicures. Don't get me wrong. I love a crisp and clean fingernail as much as the next gal. However, what I don't love is the time it takes for the upkeep. I just have too many other things to do (like MAKE CARDS!!) than to sit in a nail salon and have someone poke and prod and massage my digits. I can do it myself from the comfort of my living room couch on a Saturday night while watching A Few Good Men for the millionth time, thank you very much.

You guys! This tree by Hallmark that I stumbled upon in Home Depot just might be the coolest thing I have seen in a really long time! I walked into Home Depot tonight with my husband to buy some hooks for our garage, and the tree, which was fully assembled on display, immediately caught my eye. I was so taken by the beautiful decorations that I didn't even realize what I was looking at until my husband pointed out to me what the tree was all about: it holds Christmas cards!!!! FANTASTIC!!!! What could be better than that??? What an ingenious invention! Take a closer look:
The tree comes pre-lit and pre-decorated with these wonderful gold hooks for the greeting cards. BUY THIS TREE NOW!!! It is on sale for only $99.50! Click HERE to buy, but first read the details from the Home Depot website:

Each kit is marked down from $14.95 to $5.99 and includes materials for 12 holiday photo cards. The pre-printed cards have die-cut photo notches, note cards for a handwritten or printed message, and closure stickers. The finished card size: 5" x 7". The card folds closed to create its own envelope. The note cards say "2013" on them, but don't despair! I will show you how I easily disguised the date and made the note card look even cuter!
I really need to make my family Christmas cards in July. Once fall arrives, I have NO TIME to make cards for anyone other than eWillow.com clients. For that, I am very grateful. However, I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I mailed store-bought Christmas cards. NEVER EVER would I or could I do that.
This year was especially hectic because of our trip to NJ for Thanksgiving. (Read more about that and see decorations HERE.) Luckily, we had a photographer at the Thanksgiving party to snap candid photos of the day's events. As luck would have it, the fire hall had a lovely red wooden shed that looks just like a barn. Since the four of us were together, we grabbed the photographer and sneaked out for a family photo. Sometimes all of the stars align and we get a great photo. Luckily, that happened this year!
Not only was I thrilled that we were able to get a great photo, but I was even more thrilled when I took a look at Stampin' Up's year-end close-out clearance blitz and found the PERFECT pre-made Christmas cards. The color scheme of the cards coincidentally matched our Christmas photo perfectly. I love when things like that happen.
Just slip your 4 x 6 vertical photo into the pre-cut photo corners. Fold the card and it becomes its own envelope.
It doesn't matter that the note card says Best of 2013. Just cover it up with matching washi tape! I used the included envelope seals on top of the washi tape for double-coverage.
Since I used the envelope seals as part of the note card, I purchased labels that were really heavy-duty to seal the envelopes. We mail several cards to Canada each year, and I wanted to be sure that the cards were tightly sealed.
If you purchase these cards now, you can plan your outfits, location, and photo orientation for you 2015 Christmas card. Or hire eWillow.com to make your cards for you! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org !!
