I HATE ALL my Christmas cards!
 
I have been making 5-10 of one design and switching it up a few times a week. I still hate all of them I have made. Now I have scads of cards I don't want to send out because I hate them so much... what is it with this year? Oy.

You are probably just tired of making them. I'm not real thrilled of the first design I made either. I like the second set better, I like the third design even better. Give me a day or two and I'll dislike those also!

If you truly do hate the cards, donate to a local church to send to elderly, college kids, or members that are in the armed services. Send them to a nursing home, or send them to the troops. Someone else will just love what you have done.

I'm like that with all my cards. Then usually if I put them away for a while and take them back out, they grow on me. I know your crunched for time, so you can't store these till next year (or can you?) but I think we all go through it.... I know it easier said than done, but don't be so tough on yourself.

can you alter them and make them so you are more happy?

Send them to me...I haven't even started mine yet. *grin*

The people you send them to will probably love them. Don't make any more cards for now -- just get those in the mail ASAP and don't give them another thought. Then make some birthday cards or something to refresh your creative spirit.

I think I have learned to love my Christmas cards again. I have been trying to be all demonstratory about it and using only active stamps. I had to just go back to what I love- Shapes & Shadows and Happy Winter it is for the rest of my cards. I think I'll save the rest for a craft show I hope to attend next year. Thanks for all the advice!
