Christmas Card Crisis

Every year I enthusiastically purchase my Christmas cards for the season, take out my carefully compiled list of loved ones and settle in to convey my Yuletide love to them.  And each year I'm burnt out by card #15 (on a good year, sometimes I don't even make 10) and I am left deflated and ruing that I ever started in the first place.

BUT I cannot be taught old tricks and this year I will once again attempt to get them all done and in the post before I lay me down to sleep on Christmas Eve (yes that is the actual cut off date I give myself so really no excuse to never have get through my list!).  So I plan to get started tonight and to get myself in the mood I've found these old cards to inspire (or not).

From the timeless elegance of Jackie...

...to the so-right-now absurdity of Mariah.

From those klassy Kardashians,

...to some actual class with the Windsors in 1987.

...and the other big O with his family.

And finally, my pile o'blanks, waiting to be filled with words of warmth and wonder.  


Wish. Me. Luck.

  4. Oooh I like your cards! Maybe you should try and write one a night for a month? That's sort of what I do. My Grandfather gets me to send about 50 on his behalf and by the time I've done them, I'm so fatigued and uninspired about my own!

  19. I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
