Tuesday - Writing Addresses & Pretty Solstice Pictures

As I said yesterday, the first batch of my Holiday Cards will go out on Wednesday. That means I have to address the envelopes today so I'll be working on that on and off throughout the day. I usually type the addresses, but I think I'll actually hand-write them this time. If you get an envelope with a golden deer on the front, that's from me :-)


This is SUCH a great Solstice pic - over the snow and ice.



And I must admit that I adore Stonehenge at Solstice. What's not to like?



Things finally came together this year, although I would have loved things clicking into place just a bit earlier (sigh). The cut-out cards that I really wanted to send never worked so I shifted designs, changed from blade to pens, and used my "fancy" equipment to draw designs and to write poetry and sentiments in the card. Then I applied Swarovski crystals, added decorative braid, and embossed things in the interior. I will be including something special in some of the cards, just open carefully :-) Happy Holidays and Good Solstice to all!
I really do love these two. Nothing makes me much happier than looking at beautiful pictures.

I think they are both amazing, but the moon pic is one of my favorites. Although I adore the sun, I am fascinated by the moon.

I do love the Stonehenge picture - and as so many of the current theories tell us it was made for Winter Solstice, not Summer, it's absolutely perfect for the season.
Was it really? What fun! I love Stonehenge, although Avebury is closer to my heart. When I was last in England I drove all over the place, and both of the henges were on my route. They were so worth the visit.
