“Greeting cards have all been sent…the Christmas rush is through…” Sing it Karen Carpenter!
Sara and I are now sitting at our dining room table writing out Christmas cards – a favourite activity of ours. It’s so nice to take the time to write a personal note to the ones you love, to let them know how important they are to you and how much they enrich your life. I have some of the best friends and family out there and this year I’m definitely thankful for each of them. Especially since they don’t forget me when I don’t have time to see them!
One challenge to our Christmas card tradition is finding just the right card to send out through the mail. Sometimes I find good ones in affordable places like drug stores and dollar stores, while other years I’ve scoured store after store to no avail. This year I found one set in one of my favourite places for cards – the stationery section at William Ashley. But I ran out of them quickly so I found a few more that I just LOVE from Rifle Paper Co. I’ve seen this company around at Anthropologie in Yorkville, the Drake General Store, The Paper Place on Queen West and even Indigo! They’re oh-so-charming and totally us. Hope those of you who are getting one like them as much as we do!
