Well, we have now received all 10 of our handmade card swaps and they are all lovely.  It is soooo nice to have a mantelpiece full of homemade cards.  In fact, this year we haven’t even put up any non-homemade cards cos they spoil the effect ;-).  It was good to read about other families and their Christmas traditions, including those in the States, Australia, Canada, South Africa and some Scots living in France.  We will also steal some ideas for next year’s cards of course!

Handmade Card Swap 18/11/2009

This year, we have decided to join in with the Handmade Card Swap over at Kids Craft Weekly.  The idea is that the boys make 10 Christmas cards which we send off to 10 other kids and we should get 10 cards in return.  Today has been windy and wintry, so it seemed as good a time as any to get started.  My fabric scrap bag is overflowing, so donated some to make some collage Christmas trees.  They started out quite tasteful and minimalist… but then out came the glitter 🙂
