I love being crafty, but I still buy my cards every year. There’s something about getting out 70 of them that prevents me from making them myself Sure, I could design a photo card, many do, but it’s not my thing.*
Disclaimer: I think twice about blogging about Christmas cards because any time I share what I do, people think that I don’t like what they do. It’s okay, I just do my own thing.
I really prefer to find a pretty card and devote my efforts to writing a message inside. It’s not much, but I like thinking about the person I’m sending it to. This usually results in “hey, I need to have dinner with them! And Them! And them too!”
That’s what I think it’s about in the end – getting a chance to connect with people in a non-social media form.
