Wishing each and every one of you a most wonderful Christmas time.  This year I finally got round to designing my own little set of Christmas cards - just for close friends and family.  I originally saw the image of the flamingo's on Pinterest, and managed to track it down to the very talented designer and creative force behind Skinny Creative, Sonya Skinner.  She kindly granted me permission to use her design as the main image for my Christmas cards - thanks again so much Sonya!

Below are a few pictures of my evening tonight, writing a few cards and wrapping a couple of token gifts for friends.  I had some Christmas Carols playing in the background, and my candles were lit... felt very festive indeed!

My message on the card is one I often share - in my musings and writings and the slogan reads as follow:

'this card is not only for xmas'  in other words - don't just wait for this one festive season to send someone a card or to wish them a happy day.  When you think of someone, pop out to the shop, or better even make your own unique design and send that someone a card.  Or a postcard - in this modern day we live in, it is so true - we are so connected to the whole wide world and know what's happening in each corner of the world .... and yet we don't know what it means any more to reach out to another human being or a friend who's going through a tough time.  Its more a matter of us becoming blind to human emotion ...

Thanks to you all for stopping by and reading my posts and sharing comments - thank you also for all your inspirational blogposts and writings and imagery which oh so often just make my day!

Shout out to you all - you are amazing, and inspiring and so very talented!  Keep creating and inspiring - but... now that we have some holidays over the Christmas period - do take some time out, if you are able to.  Take stock of the past year and get your mind and spirit and body well rested, but also rejuvinated and prepared for the year that awaits.  Be grateful for all the very many blessings that come our way each and every single day.  Often too many to even start to count.

You don't have to be religious to be grateful, and you don't have to be spiritual to be kind.  You can be just the way you are - but its important to realise that we are only here for a very small period of time, and during that time - be kind, be grateful, be generous, be honest - be human.  Be a kind human being - I do love that quote!

Share the love this Christmas time - cook up a feast, wash the dishes, laugh and be merry and create a jolly good atmosphere out there wherever you are in the world.  Remember, people won't remember what you said, or what you did... but they will remember how you made them feel

Merry Christmas to you all

Lotsoflove and thanx again for stopping by
