Time again to think about working smart. There are only 146 days left until Christmas so now is the time to get thinking, planning and implementing those vague concepts you’ve been stashing away at the back of your brain. If you want to do a bit of back-planning, you have about 12 weeks to get your design into a finished form, ready to print.
If you spent the next two weeks on design, that would leave you 10 weeks to work out the execution of your idea. After that you would have about three weeks for production (copying or scanning, printing, assembling), addressing envelopes and then being ready to mail your cards in late November or ready to hand out at a certain December Guild meeting. Think about it and decide to make your own action plan to finish on time and not stressed.
