The temperature took a dive in Chicago this week, and my holiday spirit kicked into high gear. This meant more snuggling by the fire, more gift-brainstorming, and more cookie-scarfing than I’m used to. It also means that I’ve been glued to my computer screen dreaming up sweet little paper products for the holidays.

And now, a small gift for you…

Since many of us want to make our dollars stretch a little farther this holiday season, making our own holiday cards at home seems like a pretty good place to start. Here are two wintery designs that you can print out at home. Just click on the image to download the printer-ready pdf!

Also, a super quick note about my upcoming holiday deadlines.

I’ve finally nailed down the last days I can take various orders to ensure everything is at your house by December 25. Here’s how it shakes out:
11/29 – Last day to order paintings or portraits until 2012
12/2 – Last day to order pillows until 2012
12/6 – Last day to order fine art prints until 2012 (coming soon)
12/10 – Last day to order mailed (instead of print-at-home) gift certificates

Stay toasty this week!
