Holiday card exchange

Preparation for the upcoming holidays is in full swing, and once again I would like to invite you to participate in a card exchange.

I love cards, buying them, receiving them - emails, texts, and facebook messages have got nothing on a beautiful card with a hand written greeting you find in your mail box.

In an effort to spread a little holiday cheer, anyone who would like can send me an email with your mailing address, I'll respond with mine and we'll exchange cards.

I really enjoyed this last year, and I hope those of you who participated did as well and will again this year!
