Writing (and Drawing) on Wednesday: My Favorite Christmas Cards!
I LOVE CHRISTMAS CARDS. Here are the ones we’ve received so far this year.
I used to do posts about my favorite Christmas cards:
“On the Eve of Nativity” (also in 2010)
“The Best Christmas Card Ever” in 2009
What do my “favorites” have in common? Most of them include original art and/or writing by children. Some have icons done by the sender. Others have nostalgic or historical value. Two families who have been mentioned by me in the past have come through with yet another “favorite Christmas card” this year.
Erin and Christian Moulton’s card features original art by one of their sons and text by another.
Anne Marie and Josh McCollum’s card (left) also has original art by one of their children.
What do these two families have in common? They’re Orthodox (hence the icon art) and they both homeschool their children.
My two favorite original art cards done by adults?
This one (below) from my high school friend, Kit Whitsett Fields, a fine artist whose work adorns several walls in our home.
And the one below that from Damon and Weezie Boiles. Weezie designs these herself (don’t know how!) and the people, dogs, cars (she did a house for her in-laws’ card) look just like the real thing.
(I’m having technical difficultlies and can’t get the art work to insert in the right order, but you can figure it out.)
