Call me old fashioned, but there is something magical about receiving Christmas cards in the mail. You go to your mailbox and a stack of colorful envelopes wait for you. Then you slit them open to see pretty cards and notes from friends. Or maybe you get a picture card of the sender’s children as they grow another year older.
Yep, that is simple pleasure.
This past weekend I wrote my Christmas cards and just dropped them into the mailbox a few minutes ago. For me, choosing the right card is a science. What do I want to convey? With the words, with the pictures…what mood do I want to send to my friends and family as I offer them season’s greetings? And of course, there is the ever important question of how much bling do I want to send their way.
How do you bling a card? I’m glad you asked. It’s all about glitter!
Some people don’t like the mess that glitter makes. But for me, glitter provides a little magic to the season. And we could all use some magic in our lives, whether from a card or a story. Sometimes experiencing something a little unexpected is what we all need to get through the day.
So fair warning, friends and family…get out your dust vacs and prepare to be “glitterfied”.
