It’s been a week of teach, take down and set up. Repeat.
With all the focus on the nuts and bolts of the studio I forgot to get my holiday cards sent to the printer. There wasn’t enough time to design something holiday-ish and get them back from the printers and into the mailbox. The online print world does make it so easy and I love using Moo and Social Print Studio for much of my print material.
But what did I do before all this click of a button ease?
I made my own cards. Did you?
I remember cutting out pink hearts for Valentine Day cards. Green construction paper turned into Christmas trees with red and white glitter ornaments. Glue fingerprints appeared no matter how hard I tried to keep the cards clean.
I’d think of all the people I’d send them to. A list! Each name brought up a memory of that person. A little smile as I’d address their envelope, slip in the tree and lick the envelope to seal it. Another lick for the stamp.
I was so proud carrying my bundle to the post office.
Thump as they dropped into the bin.
And that’s what I did this year. I made my own cards.
Thump as they went into the bin.
Such a good feeling. Better than clicking a button.
This year, rather than the easy, go for the delight.
PS: Holiday Open Studio today- Sunday December 16th! Last chance to visit the studio for 2018. Noon to 4pm!
