It's the time of the year to make resolutions and send well wishes to friends, family members and business associates.

This is also the time to say "Thank You" to loved ones and others for all that they have done for us. For me personally, I like to give thanks for all the wonderful things that God has bestowed upon my life this one great year.

I want to thank God for enabling me to build a website for my hobby and help me to reach out to cardcrafters all over the world.

I also want to give thanks for strength to meet all the changes in my life throughout 2005 - especially moving house twice within 6 months. And for good health to enjoy life to the fullest.

Most of all, I give thanks for you, my readers, for your well-wishes, positive feedbacks, RAKs of handmade cards, and contribution to the website.

Card Making Quote Of The Month

"Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given -- when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes." ~ Joan Winmill Brown

Send Handmade Holidays Greetings This Christmas!

I love Christmas! Even before fully understanding the true meaning of Christmas, I was always fascinated by the happy spirit of the Christmas season. It is a joy to walk down Orchard Road in Singapore and see the lights, mingle with other shoppers and be entertained by roadshows, performances and listen to christmas chorus singing.

Christmas is also a time when my friends and I exchanged Christmas cards and gifts. Well, now that there's emails, more of my friends are resorting to sending e-cards instead. To me, it's just not the same as finding a paper Christmas card in my mail box. When I hold a Christmas card in my hands, I know that my friend took the time to pen the greetings, no matter how brief, and sign the card. And that gives me a good warm feeling.

I believe that many others feel the same too. Therefore, I would encourage every one to send Christmas cards to friends and family every year. It is a good family tradition and being that, it should be kept and passed down to all generations.

Better still, a month or two before Christmas, start making your own Christmas cards by yourself, with friends or with the children. These are moments that will be remembered forever. And then the wonderful task of sending the handmade cards far and wide, bringing cheer and goodwill to friends and family members. What a joy!
