Christmas Cards

I get completely excited about Christmas cards! I love sending them- and I don't like just doing ones from the store with a picture added. I like custom ones.

This is the one I did last year, which Shannon inspired.
The front is a picture of me at "Ashley Lane" and then "Hamlin Place." We randomly came across "Hamlin Place" in York Harbor, Maine and S and I made Chip pull a U-Turn and go back so we could get a photo. Then S Googled Ashley Lane and found one about 30 minutes from their house. So we took a road trip and VOILA! Christmas Card!!

Last year was Van's and my great road trip. So inside I did pics of us in North Carolina, one of me in New York City and one of Van in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The quote was, "Every time we love, every time we give, its Christmas." from Dale Evans.
I loved it!

This year Tommie at Oh My Gluestick is designing mine, with a little help from my sister, Katie... It's going to be awesome and I am completely pumped!

So what about you? Are you as crazy about Christmas cards as I am??


  1. I can't wait to see this year's!!! Last year's was awesome ALH! Yes, I broke down and am doing them this year! YIKES!


All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
