This year I decided to make fabric postcards for christmas. For the past few years I have been making our christmas cards, but in a regular card format, so these are the first Christmas postcards. I've been reading Christine Kane's blog and last year at this time were several pots on choosing a word for the year. I had trouble choosing one word, so I choose two, joy and clarity. So I found it easy to pick a word to put on my christmas postcards, a word that I've been focusing on all year.
Clarity came thru this summer when it became crystal clear to me that I no longer wanted to vend at quilt shows. Joy has surprised me, I'm finding it in so many areas of my life. It shows up in some very simple things, like my morning walk with the dog and in some very deep profound things, like my son thriving after an extremely serious accident and lots of other occasions in between. Joy was what I wanted to share at Christmas with family and friends.
I'm still thinking about what next years word will be, but if you've read this far, I'm wishing you joy this holiday season.
