One of the annual traditions associated with Christmas is the Christmas card. The tradition goes back to 1843 when the first cards were started by Sir Henry Cole and illustrated by John Callcott Horsley. With a long tradition like that, who am I to break with tradition?
I managed to get a good deal on a batch of Christmas cards at my local store. These will go out to a number of people in my contact list. Some of these will go to my vendors, some to libraries carrying my work, some to media outlets (local news and trade journals) and a few to other places. Of course, sending ordinary Christmas cards out is kind of bland.
Nothing like a personalized greeting, a signature and a quick drawing of a Sunnyville character in the card – it makes sure my contacts remember me!
These will all be addressed and sent out by next week.
