Yes, I do and how lovely your cards are. Every time you post you bring us some uplifting pleasure.
Your cards are so beautiful, Freda. I quit doing anything Christmas years ago because of working. It all seemed a burden to add to an already too busy life. Of course that was my choice I know now. I have learned life is not all about work. I hope I have many years left to simply enjoy the pleasures of choosing and writing Christmas Cards.
I hope so too Mary. When did we get the idea that life is about productivity? I fear we may have been brainwashed!
I love writing Christmas cards and getting them too. Even if there is only a "love from...." inside they make me feel connected to people I can't be with and, as they are generally the only decoration I put up (my house is tiny), they are a major part of the visual festive reminder. I hope all who visit here get some spiritual warmth this season.
Thank you Gwendoline.
I think the connection we get from cards is especially important this year.
Yes ,I love sending and receiving Christmas cards . Electronic communications may be fast but cannot compete with the delight of a card by snail mail .
The teal thing.
There’s nothing like it.
I was just writing my Christmas card list before reading this blog entry. I do love choosing nice cards for family and friends, although I have qualms regarding the environmental cost ... I try to send ones that people will want to keep. I framed that Dee Nickerson card - Flurry of Joy - at my picture framing class and plan to bring it out each Christmas.
What a lovely idea. Oxfam have cards, the front of which can be sent as a postcard...
I am a big fan of Christmas cards and while the thought of writing them doesn't fill me with joy I don't find it a huge chore. Receiving a lovely card does fill me with joy and I must say any of the ones you show would be a delight to get.
Little sparks of joy. So welcome.
I love getting cards from far off friends, especially when they have news in them (even the dreaded printed round Robin), and keep them from year to year. I've made a wall hanging with pockets to put the cards in and that makes a decoration in itself even before the card arrive 😀
That is a super idea!
my cards are written & in the mail. I do look forward to this time of year because it's the only time I hear from some & enjoy hearing about what's happening in their lives. now cards are making their way to me. I love the connection.
It is a charming tradition, and a lovely way to keep in touch.
Your cards are beautiful! I do like receiving cards. I like sending them as well. With the long dark days, it is a nice to write a personal note to someone I rarely see, really thinking about that person and wishing them well. A little music, a candle - very cozy!
All pleasure, and kindness too. What’s not to like!
