Seeing these colors and the beautiful glow given off makes me wonder what the world would like if God had chosen a different color palette for nature. What if the sky was green? Just one of the strange thoughts that pass through my mind!
I think one of reasons Fall is so fleeting, is the early due dates put on us for Christmas. The cut-off for Operation Write Home Christmas cards was Oct. 31st! My holiday auction cards are due tomorrow. Even the Salvation Army Angel Tree gifts are due by tomorrow - December 2nd! I even saw a Facebook post with suggestions for "last minute stocking stuffers." While I can understand the reasons for most of these due dates, the rest just make me feel rushed. I want to savor the holiday season. What are your thoughts on the matter?
I spent some time going through last year's Anna Griffin Ultimate Christmas Cardmaking Kit. I got it in one of Anna's great Super Sales. Which, btw, there's another one tomorrow - December 2nd. If you're an Anna fan, these sales shouldn't be missed. But I digress. Last year's kit was not very aptly named. I believe this year's kit is far better. But I did manage to eek out three cards. They're more retro than elegant. But I think they're cute.
