Holiday Spiral

This card started as a telephone doodle. You know the ones that you draw while you chat and that some how mysteriously help you listen. She must have been discussing her holiday obligations because the card is all about being stuck in the holiday shopping spiral. She described it as an 'overwhelming tornado sweeping up fun and work and taking over.' Around and around she went only stopping to let her frustrations out on and into a postcard. A timely expression of a normal feeling this time of year I'd say. I hope that you are escaping the storm this year my friend!

Merry Christmas to all...

Last year about this time, Jessica was still madly packing up her life before our big Michigan meetup.  This year, I am frantically packing and luckily preparing to see Jess again while she is here for the holidays from Ghana.  I have gotten the gift of two snow days to get all my work done!  This card actually matches what I am seeing outside my window- lots of snowy textures.  Jess will fly in Thursday- this weather will be a shock to her system! 

Enjoy this beautiful winter scene that is reminiscent of last years holiday postcard!

Dirt roads in Detroit

This this is another 'driving' postcard from Lynn. She wrote that she likes to take dirt roads in Detroit when she is seeking a scenic view. If this was not irony enough, she said that the way that the tree shadows fell starkly on the road made her think of store barcodes. Looks and sounds like December winter in Michigan to me.
