I can't believe it's December already!
And that means sipping on hot chocolate, wrapping presents, snuggling, tree decorating and just doing cheesy, festive things with those you love. To be honest, I never did anything "Christmasy" growing up. We never put up lights, decorated the tree or had fancy home cooked meals. Occasionally we exchanged gifts but that was a rarity. Ironically, I think I've become extra festive because I didn't experience all of that growing up. I absolutely love listening to Christmas music, burning scented candles, baking cookies and most importantly, giving gifts! I love personalizing gifts according to the person I'm giving it to and sometimes I plan months in advance. With every gift, I always include a card because I believe words are incredibly important and having it in a written format allows you to revisit them anytime you'd like. So with that spirit, I added some new Christmas cards to the shop! In addition, I will be participating in #GivingTuesday where 50% of the proceeds will go to supporting a non-profit organization called Young Life / Capernaum, which assists kids and young adults with special needs and disabilities. If you're interested in purchasing packs, there is also an option to buy 5 cards for $16 or 10 cards for $30! You can mix and match the designs, just make sure to include which ones you want at check out!
I love that this day was created to promote a generous heart especially after celebrating Thanksgiving with our loved ones. Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday is over, why not participate in Giving Tuesday by giving a card to a loved one and doing some good this holiday season? Make sure to grab your cards by this week to participate in this donation :) Happy holiday season!
