A Creative Life

I'm not through posting Christmas images, but I thought I better deliver this card now, as it is our YuleTide greeting to all of our internet and blogging friends, near and far. I wish I could name all of you, but there are so many and I would be afraid that I might leave someone out.

There are a lot of you folks that I may never meet, yet I feel a kinship, not just through our mutual love of images, but for our mutual love of a creative life.

This card is a project my wife made when she was but 10 years old. She made it from little scraps of this and that. She had it in a box of keepsakes until she felt the need to lighten the load of possessions and was going to put it in a pile to go out the door. I tackled her full on and wrestled it from her so that I could archive it. It is with sincere affection for you all that I share it now (with her blessings)!

I don't mean to make her feel old, 'cause she's not, but my wife made this when John F. Kennedy was President-Elect. Those were optimistic days, my friends.

It's great you rescued it. She gave each of the wise men individuality through the clothing, the colors and the trim. I'm glad you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year!
