Making Our Own

Instead of using store-bought Thank You cards, Miriam and I made cards yesterday by painting/drawing on stock paper.  They turned out to be beautiful!  As the painting dried out, Shannon and Brahms wrote messages of gratitude to relatives and friends. 

Similarly, the Christmas cards we sent earlier were also hand-made.  I used a metallic pens to write messages on white cards.  They were very simple and inexpensive and yet they were elegant - I thought.  I would like to do the same thing next year.  This is the kind of cards that reflect the true nature of our family.  My "third-world-upbringing" forced resourcefulness to be part of my lifestyle.
