We’ve moved several times since leaving Wisconsin in 1978 so our friends are spread all over the country. About 10-12 years ago I sent out my first handmade Christmas card and now it has become expected. Some years I have an easy time coming up with an idea, while other years I struggle. When first doing this I made about 50 of them, but over the years I winnowed it down to about half that amount. Now I only send handmade cards to people who appreciate them and send cheap cards to those who don’t care. It’s one of the few things I do for the holidays and most of the time I enjoy doing it.
I spent the long holiday weekend making cards and this is what I’ll be sending out this year:
Now I have glue and glitter everywhere, but at least they are done! I’ve put some of the cards from previous years before after the fold.
