I know the Holiday season just ended a couple of months ago, I still have decorations to pack away.
With all the cold and snow that we have had here in Michigan, some things are still hard to get to.
Extension cords are still lost under heavy Ice blocks, evergreen branches are buried under mountains of snow. You need full head to toe snow armor just to get into some yards.
Spring is right around the corner according to the calendar, but it won't come over night here. There are man made snow plow mountains over ten feet tall that will take several weeks to melt away no matter what the calendar says. These are the dog-day's of winter.
So while I wait for spring and the gardening season to start up I like to get a jump start on my Holiday cards.
Some time ago I began making my own cards to send out to friends and family, and now since there is not much to do in the garden ...except shovel snow, it's a perfect time to get these cards together. If I wait till November, I feel rushed, as each one is made from cut paper, they do take some time to create.
Some years the card designs are simple, this is not one of those designs.
"Enjoy the magic of the season" is my theme, set in a woodland, complete with flying Reindeer and Foxes.
So while I wait for spring, I'll be cutting, and gluing, and cutting, and gluing. This is what I do.
