22nd of December – making cards

December 22nd, 2010 at 15:02

I’m way behind with everything this Christmas, our tree is up for three days now but not decorated, I’m still working on Christmas presents for J and I haven’t sent out my Christmas cards yet.

But today I printed a few and if I keep today’s momentum going I might just make it down to the post office before the day is out.

We’ve had a lot of snow which doesn’t normally happen in Ireland. Honestly, I mean everybody talks about climate change and many people brush it off and say sure we’ve had good summers, cold winters before. But we are now experiencing something different. I foot of snow in 6 hrs? I made myself a snow shovel yesterday because they don’t sell them here, because, well Ireland has never really needed them like this before.

I like the snow, it is beautiful and I thought I’d make it feature in my cards. These are season greetings – that way my cards will not be so out of place late (when they arrive by post with my friends) for I reckon it will keep on snowing until the end of January.

    Oh. I really love this. I couldn’t bring myself to get Christmas cards out this first Christmas after loosing our Nara, but I thought I might have Valentine cards this year instead. Perhaps I’ll have to use some creativity…you’ve inspired me.
