Where Have You Been Hiding?
Do you make New Year's resolutions? Each year, my resolution is pretty much the same: to be better about reaching out to and staying in contact with friends and family. As a busy wife and mother (among all the other hats that I wear), and as someone who is naturally a bit "hermit-ish," being social can be a pretty big challenge for me. So each year, I resolve to do better. Handmade cards are a great way of reaching out and letting someone know you care, so this year I am planning to keep a stack right on my work desk. This way, as people cross my mind, or prayer requests come through email, I can send off notes right away. Here is the first for my stack, made with the "Out of the Bag" set. I colored Oscar a little differently than he appears in the precolored image from this set, and added a few doodles and a flower accent to his bag to pretty it up. The sentiment is a good one, I think, for saying hello to someone I haven't seen or heard from in a while, even if half the time it's really me that's been "hiding." ;-)
