Of course, I fully intended to — it's just that life got in the way this December, including our house selling and a dog with a stitched paw.
Anyway, my sister Kerriann tells me Christmas cards are unfashionable these days, mostly because they're environmentally unsound. Come to think of it, I've only received two this year....
Could it be that a 150-year-old tradition is coming to an end? Or am I just unpopular?
Whichever, I had planned to put one of the above pictures on my cards this year. I created them by scanning leaves, vintage Christmas wrapping, a line from Dale Carnegie's How to Stop Worrying and Start Living and a background I painted with acrylics.
At first, I thought what I'd done wasn't super Christmassy ... then I read that early Christmas cards featured spring, rather than religious themes. How neat is that?
So, have a wonderful and refreshing Christmas, and take a minute to remember what this day really celebrates ... how Jesus was born into our world to teach us how to live, so we could enjoy a relationship with God.
