This hasn't been an easy year one way or another. After only eight months in a new job Stewart found himself out of work again - that was six month ago. He's now made the decision to start his own business but understandably that will take time to grow. So like many others we've had to cut back and economise. We did think that we wouldn't send Christmas cards this year.
But then they started to arrive and I realised I like gettng cards and hearing from people we may not see often. Last year, after getting a card from an old friend whom I'd not seen for ages, I was prompted to pick up the phone and we arranged to meet. We've seen each other a couple of times this year and are meeting again for some shopping on Friday. And so I decided that I would send cards after all this year... because maintaining friendships is important. I'd like to say I make all my own cards... but alas time does not permit.
Do you send cards... and do you make your own? I know I really appreciate and keep all the hand made ones that I receive and I re-use all the others... like this and this .
