'tis the season...

It's that time of year when the rush of holiday parties are upon us. Last year I hosted a cookie exchange with my girlfriends, and it was such hit, I decided to do it again this year. So, I enlisted the help of my very talented sister, M2....she's amazing! This is what she came up with. I just printed it on plain card stock, but have a few ideas up my sleeve for the actual party, so I'll be sure to post pics then.

Husband and I have hosted an annual brunch for the last few years as well. Last year we decided to move it to holiday time, in lieu of the traditional cocktail party. It turns into an all day event, a fun time to visit with all the children that are usually sleeping when we get together, and of course, we still have our mimosas! These CD invitations were inspired by all those cheesy 60's and 70's albums my parents used to have in their collections. You know, the kind you used to play on those big cabinet stereos that opened on top. I thought of sending out a cool remix of popular holiday hits, and incorporating it into an invitations. Again, M2 came up this amazing design.

I'm looking forward to a busy December! Please check out M2's website at A Girl Named Fred.
