A quick reminder that the $500 Nordstrom gift card giveaway is still open! (It ends January 4th.)
Last year, my husband and I had the opportunity to do a holiday card, as I detailed in this behind-the-scenes post and this holiday card reveal post. There’s no way we could have topped that, so we went back to regular holiday cards this year.
However, to still put a unique stamp on things, we decided to make our regular Christmas newsletter a little extra-special this year with holiday-themed stamps. On “Small Business Saturday” (the Saturday after Thanksgiving), we bought these stamps and ink pads at a local art store, Collage.
Sam wrote our annual write-up, which I edited, and then we printed it out on card stock that we also bought from Collage. I did different stamps on each letter, mixing and matching the holiday expressions: “Happy Holidays,” “Merry Christmas,” “Season’s Greetings,” and “Fa La La La La.”
Every letter, however, got the “holiday bike” stamp, which was my favorite stamp. So very Portland!!
We signed the cards (rather than signing the letters), and I also “signed” for our cats with the cat paw print stamp we bought last year!
Merry Christmas, y’all!
