The holidays have come and gone. I’m so glad I took the time this year to just relax and enjoy the time with my husband. There wasn’t any frantic hurrying to do this or that, no worrying about my blog or whether the world would end because I didn’t stress myself doing just one more holiday activity. I need to do more of this sort of non-doing next year—it’s truly lovely.
One thing I am being careful to do is writing thank-you notes for my Christmas gifts. I thought I’d photograph a few of the cards I’m making.

As I opened my gifts Christmas morning, I took a picture of each one and jotted the details on a nearby notepad. Then I used the photos to create simple cards using Microsoft Word. Each person gets a picture of the gift with which I was blessed and a hand-written note from me inside.
I think I’ll make this personalization my regular thank-you note style for gifts received in the future, no matter the occasion.

A year-long project I’m undertaking for 2010 is the Creative Every Day 2010 challenge. My thank-you cards count for today. Since I don’t generally blog on weekends, I’ll not post what I’m doing those days, but I will indeed do something creative—it’s what feeds my spirit.
