Christmas Cards

Time to send out the Christmas Cards. The younger generation doesn't seem to be too interested in the tradition, but I won't let loose. We include a family newsletter that I try not to get too braggy or annoying. Digital pictures are easy to add. Then I use my calligraphy tools to add a personal touch on the addresses. It keeps my hand in shape, and is a satisfying project . . . a simple pleasure of the season.

Nice tradition to keep going. Like you I enjoy writing the names of our close friends and family as I address Christmas cards each year. It makes me think of them and past memories with them. I love your journal page as a memory marking the event this year.

Your pages always spark new thoughts or old memories and this one is a favorite. The design is so strong and content right on. So, after giving up addressing in caligraphy some time ago (I'm weak), I may have to begin again. As you write, it's more than just getting the info down. :)

Yes, this year I felt like I was part of a dying breed. Yet, I continue to make cards. Guess I'll just continue to be an old traditionalist. Joy!
