A big thank you to Nate & Salli at They Draw & Cook for rerunning my Holiday recipe. This past Christmas week they highlighted recipes that featured a Santa. On Friday, Dec 27, they posted my holiday submission from 2010. Someone commented on the site that it would make a good Christmas card. Why, yes, it was my card that year. Check out my 12/26/2010 post to see it in full.
Wishing all a very Happy New Year.
It's that time of year again. Since 1997 I have sent out a motorcycle-themed Christmas card. This year the card does not feature a Harley but you need to shake it up now and again. A Christmas Guzzi is on the menu instead, with the sentiment:
May the gifts of the season
accompany you throughout the new year.
Despite all the hoopla, I would like to add what I believe is a perfectly lovely, all inclusive greeting,
The Christmas cards have been designed, drawn, scanned, colored, printed, glittered, folded, stacked, signed, enveloped, addressed and finally, mailed. Almost sixty hand-made cards will make their way to Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, and Virginia. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus card on the way! This early completion is almost a record for me in the decade and more I have produced them. They are labor intensive (a labor of love) and more often than not have arrived in their recipients mailbox on the eve of the holiday. Not by plan, of course. But this year they are on their way in mid-December. It's a Christmas miracle!
It is scary how quickly this year has flown by. It is December already and the new year is almost upon us. The pumpkin was carved and our turkey-less Thanksgiving meal consumed, all without a single post. Now with the winter chill in the air, the Christmas card production line is under way.
