My friend the Funky Art Queen, is having a Christmas contest. You are supposed to post one of your pictures from a Christmas long ago, and tell about it. I am still looking at my box of old pictures and I know there are tons of Christmas pictures in it, but I haven't gotten around to sorting through them yet. In the mean time, I will show a picture of the one and only time that I drew and hand lettered our Christmas cards. I only sent out about twenty, so it was not hard at all. I remember sitting on the sofa, in our old apartment and doing these cards. I worked at a printing company and had someone cut navy blue linen cover weight paper to size. I found some heather green envelopes (there at work, also) and did all the artwork and writing in a silver gel pen. I even put a hallmark on the back that read Christmas 2000.
So, even if I don't get around to posting any pictures of Christmas past, this is a memory that means a lot. So, if you can find time, hop on over to Leslie's blog and say hi.
Take care and stay away from the mall. Go to CVS or somewhere like that for last minute stocking stuffers and gifts, you'll be glad you did.
