Which One……….?

I have made all my Christmas cards the past several years.  I have tossed around many different ideas about Christmas cards. 
-Should I really go to the trouble?
-Make 15 a month instead of 100 in November
-Make about 30 handmade for the people I know appreciate them and don’t toss them in the trash
-Everyone else gets “whatever”
-But really how would I narrow that list down?
-Make a club where people came to my house and we did it together
-Make a class where people come and made the cards.  I prep- make a little money? 
-Again is that really worth the trouble?
-Sit down and make 7 cards and then realize I can not make up my mind

So which one is your favorite?

My vote is for number 2 even though all of them are beautiful, I just think number 2 really stands out! I think the idea of having a club and people working all together sounds fun, but I would be jealous and since flying out to California is not in the cards for me right now, I wouldn't do that...or just don't tell me you do! :)Good luck figuring out how to do the Christmas cards. I am having the same dilema.

Dani said...

I love them all but the red rose and the pine cone ones are my favorites.

Let us know what you decide to do. I haven't even made my Thanksgiving cards yet!

Debby said...

WOW!...Eve, they are ALL absolutely beautiful! But, being the traditional kind of gal I am, I'd pick #4.

Lisa said...

These are beautiful!!! Personally, I love them all but the purple one, which is #5. That one is just too "mod" for my taste. However, what do you think about doing a set of each card? Then you can still have your 100 cards, but you won't get tired of making all the same card. You could do like 30 cards a month (Sept-Nov) and only do about 15 of each card.

If you do decide to do a class, I want to participate via mail! :-) We'll figure that out somehow!!

Great job, Eve! You are so talented!

Leigh Ann Baird said...

Goodness, what a tough choice! I love #1 and all the others are awesome too. I'm lazy and cheap, so I would send a few handmade to those extra special people and all the other regular special people get whatever. I sound like a horrible person, but I'm not!

If I needed to make 100 Christmas cards, then I would probably make several every month with a different design each month.

Alyssa said...

I really like 2, 4, 6 and 7. But see, if you keep making new ideas, you'll be done before you know it! Or maybe that's what you're going for??? ;o) lyss

Holli said...

#1 or #5.... I love those!!

A Little This and Alot of That said...

I like the green one from our family to yours the best... I guess Christmas is traditional time for me....I do understand about sending homemade cards to those who toss and don't appreciate....

Deconstructing Jen said...

Wow, Eve! These are all gorgeous. I think I like the holly one the best but I also really like the Winter Wonderland one also. Tough choices, lol. You are really ambitious to make these!! I bought mine from Tonya last year. ;)

Kristen said...

wow...aren't you the ambitious one? i think you should make a few of each and spread the wealth. that way you wouldn't get bored and you wouldn't have to decide between them all. ;)

Tanya said...

They are all wonderful! I THINK my favorite is the pinecone/green least favorite is the purple....but I really really like them! :D GOOD LUCK!!!!

Donna said...

OME Eve...How do you make a choice between them?...They are all just gorgeous! I Like all of them but the ones that stand out for me are the rose one and holly one and the winter one...and I like...Oh that's right! You just wanted us to pick a FEW of our!

Beate said...

Wow! Wonderful cards. I am not sure which on to pick though.
Hugs and smiles

Gina said...

Ummm, too hard to decide, I like all of them. If I had to pick only one, I think it would be the pine cones. I make a few each month (that is my goal anyway) and only make a few of each one, because I get bored!

AK Stamper said...

Hey Eve,
Wow........It's hard to really pick one that I really like more that the others! 3,4,& 6 would be my three favorites......but if I had to pick only one it would have to be my favorite number #3.

100 cards is gonna take awhile, once did 30 for a customer and it took me 2 weeks to get them done, tho they were very detailed!


Lisa Dones said...

You are incredible!!! My vote is for #4 :o)

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
