Finally…the day after Thanksgiving is here so I can get away with playing Christmas music in the house without my husband complaining!!!  (He did actually let me put it on yesterday while I was cooking Thanksgiving Dinner, but I had to pout a little to get it.)  I can start putting up the Christmas decorations today too…I seriously think I wait all year long for this day.  I LOVE Christmas time.  It is my absolute favorite holiday.  I love everything about Christmas time.  Smells. Sounds. Lights. Trees.  I can even get excited about waiting in line to see Santa:)

Since introducing my Christmas Cards in the shop, I have been getting A LOT of feedback about the “religious themed” cards.  It seems that even though the norm in advertising these days is “happy holidays”, there are still a great number of us out there that not only need a little Christmas, but want to focus on the meaning behind Christmas and not just Old Saint Nick.

I’ve always been more of a Santa, reindeer Christmas gal.  I really have never gotten excited about religious Christmas decorations.  I think the biggest reason being…they all look the same!!  Gold leaf, crimson, calligraphy.  Something my grandmother would choose.  I’m more of a quirky decorator.

This is how the “For Unto Us” collection was born…(no pun intended).



This Christmas Decorations line is a mix of bright colors, black silhouettes, and modern style while still embracing the traditional Nativity.  I think it makes a nice compromise between the old and the new…and my grandmother agrees:) Download the free printables here.


I’m ready for Christmas….now if I can only get it to start snowing…
