Christmas Card Day



4:55 pm

*sips more hot cocoa* 
 (mixed with more coffee)
Yes I have been drinking nothing but hot cocoa and coffee these past few days. I think that's what causing my acid reflux late at night. :(
I should probably slow it down......
I'm feeling a lot better today. 
  I was upset over something silly, I think I just get the "holiday blues" around this time of the year.. every year. 

 
Speaking of the holidays- today's "cute finds" post is related to exactly that.

Happy Christmas Card Day!!!!!!

 *inserts an old xmas tree gif I made nearly FOUR years ago*

I'm actually pretty bummed that I've never really stuck to actively posting my digital art on my blog. I even have a button meant for it. It's just another of my many ideas I start at 3am, and then end up never pulling through with. (hahaha)

 When I first started this blog I originally wanted to share the art I create, especially cute doodles I drew with my tablet for fun. If you've been a follower since 2011, you probably would have remembered how colorful my blog used to be. I inserted a lot of pixel art and stickers to place throughout my text posts because I love personalizing my blog as if it were a live "scrapbook" of my life.

The goal is to make more of these and to share them in a section of my blog for others to use! All I want to do is spread color everywhere, and this is one of the ways I plan on doing so.~ 
 This is the first one I've ever made to share.
  (I know, it's a masterpiece)
 Haha just kidding, I promise I've improved! 
I'll be sure to start working on more<3 Enjoy!

Now back to Christmas Card Day~

As you know, to help get me in the mood to continue blogging, and to help fuel my admiration of odd holidays, here is another blog post where I relate this hobby to another:  
Browsing online shops/sites and the cute items/ideas they offer<3

 I love sharing them not only because of the fun of finding them, but because I feel that sharing these shops help 
 support small businesses and creative minds.
( I will try to keep 80% of the items I share to be from small businesses)

 Let me know in the comments what items from the list below are your favorites. There will be a link under each photo to the shop/artist. If you end up purchasing an item, I'd love to know that as well. Enjoy! :) I had a lot of fun making this.~<3


--------------------------

I love Christmas Cards. All sorts of cards, really. I love gifting  cards to friends and family for all types of occasions, I love the idea of "It's the thought that counts." I think that even if you can't afford a gift, a simple card with your personalized message in your handwriting- is so genuine and heart warming. Even if it's a short: "xoxo, love Krystle" written in ink- I love that. 

These days, with social media so intertwined with our lives, it makes it a bit more different. I have lots of online friends and I've wondered about how to gift them in a way that gives the same kind of warmth. Sure, you can order a waffle maker and send it to your friend- but what about cards???? 
  That's why I adore cards online. 
The thought of someone spending their time
 to browse shops to pick out the perfect card for someone- 
is just as special.

 Ooh! Ooh! Or better yet, I have an idea!
 Can you imagine how fun it would be to light your favorite holiday candle,(I recommend gingerbread) set aside a plate of sugar cookies and eggnog, roll on fuzzy socks, and snuggle in your favorite pajamas only to personally write in cards you ordered online a week ago? One of my favorite things are writing letters and the licking of envelopes and stamps. I find any excuse to send mail through the post office, haha. I get really excited. Let's be pen pals?
Anywho, here's a bunch of Holiday cards I picked out. As fun as this was, it was very difficult because Etsy has way too many talented artists. Happy browsing! <3

That's it for now. :)
 BTW I mixed a few ACEO art in here. I have a huge admiration for miniature art. They're pretty much "artist trading cards." I love the idea, it already has a huge market for it but I feel the idea has so much more potential to be something bigger. 

 Well time to wrap this up!  Thank you for browsing, I enjoyed making this. Have a beautiful day! <3
