I know you're probably thinking, "how old fashion".
But I do love coming home from work to find that another Christmas card has arrived in the mail.
Yes, I have "ol' fashion" friends who are generous enough to take the time to write and mail those little pieces of art, humour, and good cheer.
And I do get Christmas greetings from my technology inclined friends via electronic sources. It is not the same as those e-cards are hard to display on the Christmas tree or string along the wall.
My favourite cards are the ones that are homemade with winter scene photographs, or scrap-booking materials.
I do admire those folks that go the extra hundred miles in their Christmas card giving.
I am in awe of those creative folks that use their sewing machines to create homemade Christmas cards.
And check this one out! A co-worker and friend gave me this beautiful hand-made card a few years ago. It is stunning.
She rolled paper strips and glued them onto card paper into a pattern depicting a tree.
I don't have the patience to create this detailed work but I do have an appreciation for the creativity of this beautiful piece of art. Every year, I take it out and display it with the other cards that come in through the mail. I thought I would share it with you too.
