Less Is More

I bought a Papyrus Christmas card to mail to my sister. Inscribing the note was pure joy. The card is a gift within itself.

As I prepared the card to mail, it felt like giving quality over quantity. There was a time I believed more is more, but less is more for me.

To focus on less, but give my best.

Papyrus wrote a message about the Hummingbird on the card used for protecting the actual card. The inside of the envelope was a surprise. It makes sense that a beautiful card should travel in an exceptional envelope.

A gold seal embossed with the Hummingbird finished it off. It was the most meaningful card I’ve mailed.

Today, I was reminded by a Christmas card that it’s quality over quantity and my darling….less is more.

They Are Mailed

SC Lourie designed Christmas cards this year. I saw them online after Thanksgiving and fell in love. I was so excited about the cards I overlooked the shipping method and she sent them regular mail.

They arrived last weekend from the UK.

I have fond memories of Christmas cards as a child. Mama would tape them around doorways.

They have become a lost art so I’m grateful for the creative souls who are bringing them back to life.

I realized this year I missed them. You give what you wish to receive. The last one was mailed today.

Years ago, my then husband and I had cards printed and engraved with our family’s names and mailed by a mail house right after Thanksgiving.

I don’t know if I’m bending the rules to the point of nonexistence, or if they just broke when my marriage did. It didn’t bother me one bit to mail these cards the week before Christmas.

They are full of love and they are mailed.
