Basic Invite brings Joy in July!
I remember being a young girl and enjoying Christmas so much. It was that special time where all my family got together and smiled, laughed, and truly got to see one another. See, My family all scattered around the globe, so Christmas was the one holiday where everyone seemed bonded as one. I couldn't grasp the concept of only having the magic of Christmas in December so my mom started the tradition of Christmas In July. Little did I know that this magical "holiday" is celebrated around the world. However, to my family it was the halfway point that allowed us to experience the magic in July. My mom would go all out, living in Chicago we experienced snow. Of course, it never snowed in July but my mom would decorate the house with fluffy fake snow. She'd adorn our windows with garland and decorate the fireplace with stockings and we'd make milk and cookies. My brother and I had so much fun doing that little tradition that it still sticks with me to this day. One of my favorite memories is making holiday cards for our family, even if it was for Christmas in July. It's funny how my mom still hangs those holiday cards on my bedroom wall because it holds so much magic and loved embedded in paper and scribbles.
This year I wanted to send my family an actual Christmas in July Holiday card! I just purchased a new puppy and I thought it would be amazing to send the picture of her, in a Santa Hat, to the family. I wanted to put a huge smile on their face so I decided to utilize Basic Invite. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you to order a printed sample of the actual invitation before you place the final order! How cool is that. To actually see your magic come to life and make sure it's what you want before placing the purchase button. I don't know about you guys but actually holding something in my hand is where I conjure the most excitement. That way it allows me to fully see if the creation I made is what I actually want.
