hello folks. i recently found a time capsule dating back to the 1950’s underneath my back porch and amongst other things, there was the most peculiar item included. it was a rectangular folded piece of paper with a triangular back with what appeared to be a sticky glue-like substance on the very edge of it. on the front were a few lines of text that seemed to be written with the human hand with some kind of dye or ink. inside this paper rectangle was another rectangle on a heavier paper with an image of a christmas scene and the words “happy holidays” printed on it. inside the folded paper rectangle was what again seemed to be words written in that same dye or ink. i would again assume this was all done with the human hand.
i did some research on the interwebs and it turns out that people used to send each other these “greeting cards” or “stationary” for special occasions. can you even imagine how thoughtful of a gesture this must have been? oh…those silly humans!
long before the e-card and the group text message conveying well wishes of the holiday season, we had christmas cards. good old fashioned, hand addressed christmas cards. in the spirit of the holidays, i have whipped up some super cute christmas cards for your purchasing pleasure. they are all hand drawn by yours truly and printed on card stock. there are 2 sets of eight cards. one set is called “holiday cheer” and the other is called “holiday punch”.
snatch them up while you can because, before you know it, mr. claus will be trying to squeeze his big ol’ tush down your chimney. i’ve always wondered…what about the houses that don’t have chimneys? either way…happy holidays!
