Thinking ahead

While Hubby was taking our friend’s daughter to the train station today, I got the kit out, put a CD on and settled down to make some Christmas cards.
For the past couple of years I’d been struggling to find trimmings, but last year I found the Mother Load so I had lots to play with.
Earlier this week I’d gone through the box of cards received and there was quite a lot I could recycle.
In all, I made 21 cards, some from scratch and a few pinching an idea for a handmade card received from a neighbour in the next road last year. I’m quite pleased with the results and now have enough to fulfill my postal list. My next session on the subject will be for the local run, which will be at least another twenty. I shall also send some up to my Aunt as I did last year.
Here is a selection of day’s efforts.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  6. I love your Christmas cards. I have sheets of the Victorian ephemera that I keep telling myself I will make into Christmas ornaments. Perhaps this will be the year.
