For years one of my favorite things to do was to make our own Christmas cards.
Sometimes the kids got involved. Here is some of Raya's artwork:
This one was made on my Gocco printer:
My Gocco prints from the 80's were not as inventive as the ones I see today. I don't remember where I found my printer, and had to stop using it because replacement materials weren't available.
This fold-up ornament card was adapted from one I saw in Sunset Magazine. I think theirs was a house.
A paper doll that I made to sell at a craft fair:
After my sewing business took off, doing anything before Christmas became next to impossible, especially when the kids were small. This year I have been busy with my business, but manageably busy. When a young woman I know hosted a holiday craft night, I got excited about doing a card again. I haven't done much drawing in a while, so I decided to use scissors and glue. Here's a peek:
The tree still hasn't been decorated. Hopefully tonight.
