To all my readers, and friends:
When we moved to Eire in 1983, I started by making Christmas cards with a little black ink pen drawing of the house or place we'd live that year. It begun with the caravan/house we'd live in, later once we did manage to settle down a little and celebrated more New Year's Eves in the same house, I would draw the road's houses on one side, the other side the following year or a certain landmark or building in that town/village. That way our family/friends would get a memento from our new surroundings because we had moved this far from where they are and where we were too, once upon a time, in our former life.
The last cards I made were of our village, but none has been made nor sent from our present house, and yet we moved here 8/9 years ago.
Supporting charities instead of paper and ink suppliers did make up for the guilty feeling I felt inside. But was this towards the friends and family or more towards myself?
Anyway, I'm not very good at making pc generated cards than in real life. Somehow the text turns out a lot smaller than on the photo when I created it!
