I don’t know how Designing Mom Ryan manages to outdo herself each year… Each season, Ryan’s holiday cards (take a look at last year’s) take on the theme of a different era. The result of course is something timeless for her family and loved ones to cherish forever. I’d love to try this and am so inspired by her creative holiday… hope you are too…

Every year my family and I do a period photo shoot for our holiday card. This year it was the 1920’s. A
lot goes into this photo shoot; era appropriate clothes, location, photographer etc. But we are left with
a cherished moment and a fun way to teach our kids about history and just give them a perspective
on a different time. I have always loved history. I had the Dad that wanted you to see every Civil War
battlefield and the places our Founding Fathers walked. My son now loves history too and I couldn’t be
more thrilled. But really, I am just a drama geek at heart. I was an actress forever. Now I’m a designer
and a Mama but part of my heart just really wants to dress up in costumes and pretend. So far, we’ve
done the 1950’s, 1970’s and now the 1920’s. Any great idea’s for next year?
Happy New Year. Ryan and family.
