Joyeux Noel!

Hello … bonjour … and Joyeux Noel … Merry Christmas! My card making and blogland hiatus is going on a little longer than I anticipated and this year, it’s not been possible for me to make and send cards out as I have done in previous years. That makes it all the more important for me to be here to send you a QACAS (and not especially well photographed!) virtual card with my in-real-life warmest wishes to you all for a blessed, joyful and peaceful Christmas. I have so appreciated receiving a host of cards and emails from lovely friends out there … they have each had me smiling all over my face and heart. Thank you so much … you know who you are!

I hope you and your families and/or friends are enjoying the simple pleasure of each other’s company, sharing this special time of year together and preparing for the fun and adventure that’s to come in 2022.

I’m still not certain when I’ll be back with you … though I am sure that I miss being here in this lovely, creative, supportive world. For now, I’m content to just look forward to that time, whenever it comes.

Merry Christmas to you all … and a happy, healthy and crafty new year!

Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy, even when I’m not around to respond to them!  Hugs, Anita

    Beautiful scene — my absolute favorite, as a matter of fact! Love the simplicity, and allow the context speak for itself. We miss your presence but we understand that life takes us in all different directions sometimes — will will anticipate your joyous return. Til then, Merry Christmas, be blessed & enjoy ALL the blessings
