It's the day after Christmas and I'm finalizing my New Year's cards. My list isn't as long as some, but they still take work. I completed the graphite drawing of my turtle (original sketch here), designed the card via Desktop program, and I've printed them out in a few different formats. Some as folded cards and others as post cards. They will all go in their respective envelopes.
I sure wish I were more ready with my calligraphy to address them beautifully, but
"...sometimes you just
have to accept
that you don't have the time."
My idea was to have a quote that supported my Slowing Down message.
I had some printing snafoos but refuse to misuse paper so I came up with a third format to use them! If you're determined to re-purpose you can just about always come up with a solution.
Looking up the author of the quote, I just had to include a small bio on him on the back. Most of my recipients are the older generation that will find appreciation in his story. I left space below the bio to pen in my wishes for the New Year.
Anywho, above is the final post card version. Let the countdown begin!
Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.
• More Love Letters
• Letter Writers
• A Month of Letters
• Post Card Exchange

Remember paper planes?
