    This year.

    Nope. No one will be getting my hand-made picture cards this year.

    Why?

    I want to actually relax and enjoy my holiday.

    Selfish?

    Maybe. :eek:

    I just don't think anyone but the closest folks in my life are getting any. I usually do...christ, I don't even know how many.

    Maybe I'm just not very sentimental, but...I've always thought xmas/birthday cards are a complete waste of time and trees :eek: :eek:

    Well I finally realized that no one really ever says - gee thanks, Gary those cards are great. I mean I make them from scratch - blank card, photomount all those pictures, hand write out all the notes...

    I just don't feel like it this year.

    Well, I'm sending cards but only signing my name inside them. Address labels done on computer. Hey, it's the thought that counts, right?

    I'll bet someone will ask you why you didn't send them out this year, though. One of those things people take for granted, y'know?

    BTW, those cards sound great, iGary.

    Perhaps I should be embarrassed that we do send out pictures?

    I stay in touch with online friends all the time, but for some sending a holiday card is the only (or only other) way we stay in touch. So I make home-made cards on the computer, print them, and send a batch of them out every December.

    Meanwhile, here's some discouraging news about snail mail:

    I make cards sometimes but this year, I've been lazy and just bought them. I will write a little note in them all...

    Sadly I don't have a picture of my most successful home-made card, hmm, it's about 7 years ago, perhaps it's time for a repeat! I got blank cards and stuck a tiny red pompom in the centre of the front. Then I got holly leaves and stripped them from the branch, stuck a sticky fixer on the back and then put two on the card, at a jaunty angle above the pom pom.

    Kinda like this

    \ /
    o

    The leaves looked like antlers so the whole thing looked kinda like Rudolph.

    Maybe they're inspired by Steve Jobs and his $*99 price tags.
