At last…

…but not at least…another Henry Christmas card 😆

I finished this card yesterday morning but didn’t have time to post it on my blog as I was busy preparing the food for the rest of the day; we feasted on meatballs, Jansson’s temptation, ham, salmon, ribs, herring, beethroth sallad, shrimp omelette, and some other bits and bops that belong on a a genuine Swedish julbord (couldn’t find any leverpastej here though…).

This year’s first Christmas card I made back in June; I’m so happy and relieved that I managed to make all the X-mas cards I intended to make for family & friends this year without having to sacrifice quality for quick and simple ones. However; I hadn’t foreseen that I’d end up making the last one on Christmas Eve itself (it was tricky as we have guests over and they are staying in my craft room, so I had to move the card making into the kitchen, but had to keep running upstairs to get stuff from my room), so though I’m right now utterly fed up with making Christmas cards, I have promised myself that next year I’ll start even earlier than this year. Definitely not in January, probably not February…maybe March?! 🙂
