I had another little snowman in my advent calendar again.
This is an odd photo for today, it was actually taken in colour - not sure where it all went though. I took the photo on the way home from work. To be honest, there were nicer views but I couldn't stop the car to take the photo. The trees looked pretty with the frost and snow on them, why did I take this drab photo?
So, I've decided this year that I'm not going to send any cards until I receive my first one. I had expected to receive a few by now, but not one. I used to post my cards on 1st December, but I went for a change this year (living dangerously!).
I've made all my cards this year, I like to make my own, but sometimes I don't get round to it. I started early this year as I'm waiting to go into hospital for an operation on my hand and I didn't want to get caught out and have to buy them. I went to a card making marathon at the end of October and made quite a lot of my cards there, it was run by Julia and Ali, the 2scrapladies (they're here if you'd care to look
http://www.2scrapladies.blogspot.com/ ) and a fabulous time was had by all.
I always think I send too many cards. I swing from wanting to send only to people I know well and see or speak to regularly, to want to send only to those people I don't see often. I send to and receive cards from people I haven't seen for fifteen years - Should I carry on sending cards at Christmas when I haven't seen them for donkeys years?
I never write "round robin" letter, I can never believe that people are in the least bit interested in what my family and I have been doing all year. One family send a letter every year and it's written almost like a diary, everything each individual member of the family has done all year is documented! I usually just sign the card and post it off.
I haven't photographed any of my cards so I can't put them here. May do that later.
Well, dear reader, that's all for today.
