I know it's WAY after the fact to post holiday stuff, but what can I say! I've been trapped at the bottom of a well. So, happy belated holidays and I hope the new year's been treating you all well!
I just wanted to share the story behind this year's holiday card. Since 7th grade I've been making homemade cards (like these) for my friends and family, each year trying something different...
Remember last year when we made wrapping paper in Bushcraft? (If not, see it here.)
Well, here's how my paper ended up looking when put to use last year at the Gulledge house. (Sorry about all the glitter, Mom!)
My family didn't tear the paper at all, so I decided to reuse it. In the spirit of the paper's origin, I decided to include an interactive element in this year's crop.
So each card was designed to be cut in half...one half to be folded in half as a now baby-sized card, and the other half becoming a postcard to be reused yet again.
(Thanks, Rob Richmond for the cool photo collage!)
It makes me smile to think about how a single piece of paper can pass thru so many hands. And as the living room was taken over with scraps of paper, Rory got himself a playground as his holiday treat.
