Yes, it is that time once again. First school starts, then Halloween costumes fill up your local Wal-Mart stores, then all of a sudden *poof* it is time for the joys (and pains) of Christmas shopping. (If you are one of those people who say there is no pain in Christmas shopping, you are lying and you know it so shush!) :)
Every year my Grandmother sends a beautiful Christmas card with a sweet little note hand written on crisp, cream colored stationary. Every year, I swear she does, I can lay money on it. She is one of those few people who feel like a hand written note means more than an e-card or a daily email chain-joke. Call it old fashioned, but I love getting those little notes from her. Needless to say, I was thinking of her while creating today!
I spent most of my day creating new stationary designs for the holiday season. I got to thinking about the different styles and personalities of people. There is no way I would ever send a note on a sheet of my Grandma's stationary, not in a million years--too plain for me--so I created some that were both gothy (in a cute way, of course!) and festive. I decided that this year, I would allow my "Lighter Side of Dark" characters to celebrate the season. SO now, both Mollie Mellencollie and Cordelia the Ghoul adorn Christmasy stationary for all the goths to enjoy!
For all those readers out there who are gasping at the thought of skulls on their holiday note paper, fear not! I also created some cute, santa inspired penguins, a few sparkly Christmas angels, and some simple yet stylish red, white and green basket weave designs as well. See? I told you that I had something for everyone! :)
