Friday Finish and Fun

 This is the second leftovers hat.  Finished.  I'm casting on with more leftover yarn this afternoon.  I love using it all up.  Because...then I get to justify more yarn.   
Every year I save the Holiday Cards.  The next year I cut them into 
tags and make a punch hole in the corner for a ribbon.
Here at our cozy home we are trying for a 
New Year's Card this year.  Al will be
here for a bit, and Zach is coming home
from Mexico in 8 days!  Or 8 crazy nights if you want to look
at it that Way!!
I'll hope to get a picture of them outside in the snow 
together.....
Beatles is used to going out with his harness on, so he may 
get in on it too. 

Are you sending cards?  I dont think they are
a must each year for us, but this year I'd like to make it a photocard year.  
How about YOU???

Yup! I have the cards and need to order stamps. I'll get them - 100++ - written and addressed this weekend, I hope, then stamped once the stamps arrive...

I love photo cards, so I started doing them a few years back. Last year I had two different designs and it was stressful, deciding whom got what. This year, one card, but no pre-printed greeting. The back (I use flat cards) is blank so I can write a personal message like I used to in the "old days".

Over the years, I have slashed my card list, and now it is a manageable size. I usually write cards as I receive them - it's less stressful and my notes are more thoughtful and specific to that person.

I've been saying I am sending cards this year but can't seem to get around to it. If I don't soon it will be too late.

I print our labels each year and have fun finding the craziest Christmas clip art available. It never fails to get a few laughs from the recipients.

Can't wait to see the pictures of Al and Zack having snow fun!!

I try to send cards every year. Sometimes I am more successful than others...

Another warm hat and more scraps out of your stash, you must feel great! I've never sent out cards because I feel that it is something that will be more natural to do if I get married someday. Then I would rather make one of those newsletter style Holiday cards that has pictures of the past year and updates on big events. At the same time I think that people really love classic holiday cards too.

I'm not so good at sending out cards.

No cards for me. It always seems to be such a great thing, but then I think about the work involved and change my mind. Thanks for the comment.

I was thinking about doing cards this year. I am a bad card-sender, and it would shock my family and friends if I did. :)

Love the hat - I like using bits and pieces up. So glad the kids are coming home. We did photo cards this year - kids, dogs, family - it was fun. I can't wait for them to arrive so I can see them in person! g

Kathy, love the tag idea. I did not send out cards last year for the first year ever...I felt guilty. So I am going to make an attempt this year if I can get my self together.
Hugs to you and I bet you are so excited to have them both home very soon,
Meredith
