The holidays are around the corner! Sending holiday cards is a timeless and thoughtful tradition that I just love. Inspired by my mother, I have a particular box packed away with our holiday decorations that I love to unearth each year. . . in it, I've saved particular memories of Christmases past including previous holiday photos and cards that I've sent, plus every list of holiday card recipients that I've written to dating back to 2008. I send about 30 Christmas cards every year, and every single one is handwritten, a long and newsy 'year-in-review' update about our lives. A handful of cards go overseas--one to my husband's grandmother whom I've never met as well as several to friends in Japan from when I lived there a decade ago. College friends, old co-workers, relatives close and far, I cherish the opportunity at this festive time of year to reconnect with loved ones.
You know how some girls dream about their future wedding day and dress? I'm not one of those girls. Because I had neither a wedding dress nor a wedding day.
I'm the girl who dreamed about having a craft room when she grows up. And sometimes dreams come true.
Hi! I'm the creator of Pot Belly Bird, hailing from Spokane, WA. Here in my blog, I'll tell you about all the fun stuff I'm up to in addition to making cards, like cooking or biking or gardening!
