None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Merry Merry Merry

Very gay they were with snow and sleigh-bells, holly-boughs, and garlands, below, and Christmas sunshine in the winter sky above. All faces shone, all voices had a cheery ring, and everybody stepped briskly on errands of good-will. ~Louisa May Alcott, "Seamstress," Work: A Story of Experience, 1873

I continue to work on Christmas cards! Husband is threatening to go buy boxed cards because I am behind schedule. As I told a friend ... I informed him if he did he would be sleeping outside ... in the pool! :O)


This card is made using scraps and a recycled Christmas card ... which is one of my favorite thing to recycle!

Haha. Would you REALLY let your hubby sleep outside Cara? Bravo on getting your Christmas cards going. This is a beauty and what a terrific idea too to reused old cards! Wish I can CAS your idea Cara but I only received the kind where people put their kids' picture on! Haha. Have a lovely rest of your week Cara. I'm off duty until the 23rd.

Hugs, Christina
