Holiday Cheer

The computer is good for many kinds of communications, but I find it a lacking at Christmas time. I like Christmas cards. I like the pictures and the messages; I like to write special notes to special friends; I like to tear open the envelopes come in the mail, to pull out a brightly-colored and cheerful card. They make me smile. I hang them on a string in my kitchen as festive celebration of friendship and family.

Here’s my Cycling into Christmas card, one of my best sellers. It is made from three different hand-carved blocks. Inside is the message, “happy holidays,” also printed from a hand-carved block.

Welcome to my blog where I write about the art and craft of my business.My goal is to make beautiful things, to make art part of everyday life, and to make my friends and family smile. Not necessarily in that order.

    That’s a charming design. I quite agree about the importance of sending physical greetings cards. We send a photo card of our four sons each year and people seem to enjoy receiving them. I am not sure it would have the same meaning if I were to simply email everyone the same photo.

  2. I love getting cards that show my friends’ children! They all look down on me as I make my bolognese sauce!
