How do you feel when you get a Christmas Card?

Sending cards every year is something I love to do, particularly now I live away from lots of friends I adore. I don't know about you, but when a card is sent to me it reminds me of the person and it shows me how much they care. They look time to communicate their feelings, instead of sending a text, using Facebook, twitter or other electronic methods. They went out, spent the time to select a card and spent their hand earned cash to buy and send it.

"Time is the most precious thing we have to give, so if we spend time choosing, writing and sending a card we are helping people feel valuable and worthwhile.". 

So, I believe it is about much more than simply, keeping it touch to update a person about the last year or to say hello. When you send a Christmas card, you are showing that person that you are thinking about them and are, in effect sending them a 'pocket' of your time, something which makes anyone feel just that little bit more special at Christmas. Sometimes life is so hectic, and we don't have time to see everyone that we would like to but sending a card shows you haven't forgotten about them and they are equally valued in your life.

This year, I wanted to make more of an effort to be more mindful in what I do during the festive season. Rather than send a glittery card that can't be recycled, I wanted to send ones that are more sustainable.



I can remember, as a child, how excited I would get when a Christmas card would arrive in my parent's mailbox. My mother would always have a special place for them. I love Christmas cards, there isn't anything I love more than writing christmas too.

I LOVE it when Christmas cards arrive, I was super excited when Doodling Lucy send me some of her Christmas cards in the post and her illustrations are so cute and unique. You should totally check out Lucy work, on Instagram. I absolutely love to supporting small business.



So...how about you? Do you send Christmas cards? Enjoy receiving them? How do you display them? What do you do with them after Christmas? Do you throw them away? Save them? Recycle them? I'd love to hear your ideas! 😃
