I don't know how it happens, but every year around mid-December I suddenly wake up to the inescapable fact that Christmas is yapping at my feet and no matter how hard I try, I just don't have the heart to kick it aside. Most years we put up a tree (after much moral debate), and little twinkling lights around the house, and pile presents under the tree. This year will be a minimalist effort, with a trimming from a pine tree stuck in a pottery vase to represent the Spirit of Christmas Decorating. Nevertheless, I find myself compelled to fashion some cards to send to family and friends. I used to make them all by hand but have since succumbed to the temptation of the computer.
Last year I got quite carried away and made two different Christmas cards. This is the cuter of the two; the other was more hard edge. As I'm not sure who got which card last time, I'm making a completely new one this year. So if I'm a little absent from Ragzedge of late, and from my studio, you know what I'm up to.
