As part of our crafty Christmas, we also did homemade Christmas cards for our family & friends this year. We did this over the course of the first 2 weeks of the holidays--using spurts of time to design the cards & then painstakingly writing in them and then decorating the envelopes and sending them off. Even Benjamin wrote in some of the cards!
I'm having a lot of fun with this year's crafty Christmas. But I have learnt that when you put in so much effort for something, you must be prepared that some people may not necessarily appreciate it as much as the effort that you put in. Still, it is not the appreciation that drives the effort, right?
