Last year, inspired by Mariëlle from Magical Daydream I put 91 postcards into stranger’s mailboxes. I wrote on each one “I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but I wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!“ and then I choose a retirement home and put them in their mailboxes hoping to make at least one person smile for Christmas.
I wasn’t sure if I should ever share as it was supposed to be a kind gesture and not a glory gesture, however I thought that the more people do gestures like this, the better we will evolve as a society.
This year, while going through my pile of paper supplies I found quite a large number of cards I have been saving, but realized I will not use them this year as I was actually planning on designing and making my own creations. So once again, I decided to write all the cards I had in the house and spread the Christmas wishes through the mailboxes.
I really liked the whole experience, gathering the cards, writing them, imagining people smiling when they open them… So I think I will keep doing this and create my own family tradition. Do yo have any similar family tradition? If not, and if you like this idea, you got the whole next year to get inspired and create your own or, if you’re not the artsy type, you can just put your own personal spin on this one!
Now, as I have been working hard at making sure I follow my instincts and listen to my inspiration when it comes, this year I made my own cards. Here is a peek at what my inspiration lead me to. 🙂
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a lovely time together with family and friends!
Thank you for dropping by,
Till next time!
