Oh, by gosh by golly, it’s time for mistletoe and holly. Tasty pheasants, Christmas presents, countrysides covered with snow…
Well, almost! It’s not quite time to listen to non-stop Frank Sinatra Christmas music. But still, I can hardly believe that it will be November THIS FRIDAY! And Halloween is today! How exciting. The season of multiple holidays has arrived. And with it, my very first Christmas card!
Of course, because I’m smitten by the small town feel of Denton Texas, where I met my husband and my very best friends, learned how to watercolor paint and sold my first prints, it only makes sense that my first Christmas card is of the sweetest spot in all of Denton. The historic courthouse lawn is like the front yard of Denton, where every one comes to play and feels like family. And it’s even more magical on a snow day!
You see, a snow day is quite a coveted day in Texas. It’s not often we get snow in this area, and when we do it doesn’t always stick around long. So, since there’s never any knowing whether we will have a snow day or not, I thought I’d capture it in a card.
I’m debuting these cards as well as gift tags and prints at The Handmade Harvest this Saturday. They are also up on my Etsy Shop HERE for all you Denton folks who will be out of town on Saturday and all you Denton-at-heart-folks who moved away ages ago.
I’m a little sad that I wasn’t able to make other Christmas cards too, but I’m content with at least this one. There will be more Christmases in the future and more opportunities to make all sorts of cards, so I’m not going to fret.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN FOLKS! I hope you get to eat gobs of your favorite candy ;)
