Anyone remember these?
Last year I did a little holiday card exchange with my blog readers (er that would be you). It was so much fun making a stack of cards and then receiving so many cards from all over the world to brighten up my little flat. I’d love to do this again this year, so I hope you’d like to too. Just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the next couple of weeks with your address and I will make some cards and send one out to you, wherever that might be. I’m not at all religious, although I do celebrate Christmas in a rather secular manner, so my cards won’t be to do with any religious holiday in particular. But I will be totally delighted with whatever card you want to send me, so please don’t stress about that. Of course I will be making my cards but I understand that this is a super busy, stressful time of year and that it’s almost impossible to get through everything on your crafty to do list so I will be just as happy to receive a card whether or not you made it. (If you are looking for awesome handmade cards to send out though I bet there are lots available on Etsy).
I don’t want this to seem like a stressful sort of swap (and also I’m rather lazy), so I’m not setting this up as a big organised swap although I did consider it. I’m just looking to send out some cards and get some in return, but I won’t mind at all if something comes up and you don’t manage to send one out. If you think this is a most excellent idea though I’d love to see you post your own call for card swapees, do leave a comment if you decide to.
Now to come up with a design. Hmm…
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
