Handmade Christmas Cards

Painted Christmas card, and ornament tree

Painted Christmas card, an ornament tree

I am getting fewer Christmas cards with each passing year, probably a reflection of my giving fewer cards as well.  Still, one of life’s joys is finding personal letters in the mailbox.  So in my limited way, I’ve tried to spread some joy by painting and sending off a handful of Christmas cards to my family and a few friends.  The rest of you will have to find comfort and joy via these images over the internet.  My digital good wishes are no less heartfelt!

    These truly are wonderful. The Christmas tree and the holly, by the way, are precisely the sort of illustration I had in mind for the etheree book. Yes, it’s still perking along. Maybe over the holidays I’ll finish the poem editing. As a way of priming the creative pump, I’m planning to take the plunge into a new blog theme. I’ve been putting it off, because my current theme is a legacy theme that, once given up, can’t be reclaimed. I can dither over decisions for years….
