Hello friends. And, Happy New Year, 2018.
My resolution is to make 2018 a healthy and productive year. I’ve been missing from these pages and I miss blogging. In the past, it has been my habit to photograph Christmas cards and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. It is a bit late, and this Santa looks a mite sad about it, but the sparkle is still in the night air until the sun hits the street tomorrow and we begin our everyday life anew.
So, I’ll post a few cards and at the end, I hope I can remember how to make an album for you to view some beautiful Christmas Cards. More people are sending letters or e-cards and I do too. But the days of the real thing are not over yet.
This one reminds me of the German Christmas Street Fair I went to a long time ago. I’ve forgotten what town.
This bear was not ready to wake up just because it was Christmas. The imaginative artists who draw Christmas Cards have my un-dieing admiration.
Then I made the cards into a Christmas tree.
Then I get to toss them and do another next year. I misplaced the key to my Christmas Storage shed and had no tree, nor lights to make Christmas bright this year.
I could have cut the lock but I was extremely busy and didn’t. The first time ever I have not decorated a tree or put lights up. But, my friend Karen gave me a table decoration and it, along with some Christmas music, made the season cheerful. Plus, Christmas at my son Ken’s, in Reno was a blast. I took pictures of that affair on my new android phone, but I haven’t learned how to get the photos into a blog-YET.
Now for the album:
I couldn’t remember how to do the album of 42 cards. I’ll call Jim tomorrow and have him “relearn” me for the next time.
