Limping forward.............

Though I said the other day that Christmas this year makes me sad.......... I don't want anyone to think I have given up on the holiday completely.  

Nope no way...

There is a little bright star inside me that every so often twinkles just a little brighter.

Many years ago I used to make all my own Christmas cards.  I realized this year I have all kinds of time to go back to that ............ and so ... for the last few weeks I have been making a few cards every morning before I start my day (so to speak)   On Monday I finished the last one - I had made 30 cards (give or take a card or two ) for W and I to send out to friends and family.

Here's a sample of the cards...............(you can click on the pics for a larger view)


 
Yesterday the snow helped make that lil star shine just a bit brighter.  AND W agreed that I could turn on the reindeer last night...........




Today I am going to pull out the Christmas boxes - gonna find the decorations that will work/fit into our little home ............... I think I might even put up the Christmas tree that I have been grinching about.  It just isn't Christmas without a tree.  Where would I put all the presents??!!

and oh yeah - I have finished all the Christmas shopping too................

So maybe - just maybe - Christmas will limp right up and fill this house with the holiday spirit................ maybe.

And that's why all of us do love you!

I'm sure it will.
Thank you, dear Morningstar for having left behind the ghosts of Christmasses past

I make my own cards too. I love the picture of the reindeer so I'll save and print it if you don't mind.

The cards are lovely and so are the deer. We have an overabundance of free cards from every imaginable charity, so I have no need of more, but I applaud you for your creativity.

Hugs,
