Every year Christmas comes quickly and mercilessly, sweeping in when I’m the busiest and catching me unawares. I never feel prepared. Often, around October or November, I’ll vaguely formulate some Christmas goals. I’ll think, “This year we’ll take a photo and I’ll do a family newsletter. I’ll buy gifts in November. I’ll design Christmas cards.” It seems that every year I fail. Christmas gets the better of me.
Not this year. At least not with the card thing. Today I started creating some designs for cards that I plan to print up next month. This is the first (and it’s not finished) of six animals. For now I call him Rabbit.
