Many choose to send wishes for the season by email these days. Quick and easy – and sometimes some stunning and lovely wee animations are filling your inbox. I still find it’s lovely to receive cards too though, so I take the time to send cards also….well, you can’t expect to receive without sending I feel.
What to write….I find it a bit tricky to muse away without sounding a bit too sentimental, so while there’s something about giving and receiving a hand written note and the personal touch of putting pen to paper, I like to make some of the cards instead, and through that wishing the merriest of Christmas to everyone.
You could argue it’s an undertaking, but it gives me an excuse to sit and create with friends over a glass of gloegg in the middle of a busy time…….just don’t leave it too late, and don’t get bugged down in details – I’m quite certain the most silly card attempt brought the best of giggles to a friend in New Zealand.
Postal dates 2014: 3-5 December for Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. 8-9 Cypres, Poland, Canada, 12-13 USA and Western Europe
Have fun, don’t take it too seriously, enjoy coming up with ideas to use up scraps and – when you’ve had enough, go buy some charity cards for the rest.
