I love the idea of photo cards telling the entire story. Pictures definitely do most of the talking, but story cards a great alternative to including a separate "letter." I am focusing most of my holiday cards on this idea and will certainly be using this option for my personal cards this year. I love them!

I am trying to get a jump on the holiday season. I am typically the person who is desperately searching for the perfect last minute gift, dress, and dream up the most wonderful last minute holiday card ideas. Not this year! I already ordered and received our girls' holiday dresses in the mail and have several ideas for holiday cards in the works. I was approached about designed a gingerbread themed card and busily went to work. I love working from my customer's ideas. I have found when they give me the theme, my creativity is guided and my ideas tend to flow more freely. Anyway, here are two holiday party invitations that I've put together for this year. I love the holidays. We finally had a taste of fall temperatures today, so I can finally sense that they are even closer. Love it!

Keeping up with 2 blogs has become overwhelming, not to mention getting back into the swing of school, my husband working crazy hours and juggling quality time with our incredible kiddos. I have been busy, but loving every minute of it. Needless to say, this blog has paid the price. I deleted my previous posts in hopes of starting fresh. :) I also gave it a lift of sorts as well as my personal blog. It is my effort to simplify and declutter. I love that feeling! Anyway, I am thrilled to announce my participation in a Give Away. I am giving away a "party package." Simply follow the details as provided on www.jmanandmillerbug.com/2011/09/mya-claire-design-party-package.html#more and you too could be a WINNER! In the meantime, I'll leave you with a few new designs I've put together. Thankfully, with all the stress I've been feeling in this chaotic life, my creative outlet has been benefiting. My shop is filled with new designs and I am add to it almost daily.
