Each year I say I'm not going to do this. There are so many other things that need doing -- cleaning, decorating, baking -- designing cards should be a luxury for more relaxed years. It's so easy to buy cards, after all.
And then I get an idea. I can't really help it, it just happens. And I tell myself one is enough, no one will mind if I only send one design. Who would know?
And then I get another idea.
Nurturing my creativity is important. I want my children to see me do this so they nurture their own creative spirits. No matter how old you get, you need to exercise your talents and indulge your imagination.
