|Some Charity Christmas cards to send out this year|
We also like to make something creative to put in our Christmas cards to tell our friends and extended family about what has happened during the year past and what we're looking forward to in the year ahead.
In the past we've made a video, letter, sent a photo collage and this year we've got another trick up our sleeves, but as its not finished I cannot tell you what it is yet.
|A fantastic homemade card by my sister-in-law|
As children, we would set aside a cold, wet, miserable Saturday or Sunday afternoon to sit down together as a family and write our Christmas cards. We would sit listening to Christmas music with all the cards on the living room floor. We would start by writing a list and then chose the right cards for the right people, write them and eventually post them as it got nearer Christmas.
We hung the cards up on pieces of string, strung across the living room wall, adding a row at a time as required. We would also hang them from picture frames and stand them on any free surface we had available.
Writing this has reminded me I still need to get on with 2013's Christmas cards :) I think I've already missed the deadline for posting cards overseas, but its the thought that counts.
