Remember The Christmas Cards?

For the last three years I’ve been having a no-contest here on the blog. I’d just send a Christmas card to anyone who would send me an email via the contact me link. (See the post from 2006, 2007 & 2008.

However I have bad news this year. Times are hard, and even tho I love making the cards and sending them far away to share my happiness, I can’t afford to do it this year. You see, the cards cost me around 2€ each, then I spend a couple of evenings at the very least making them, and sending them costs on average 1€ each. I’ve been sending around 30 cards each year. That’s 90€ that right now I do not have.

So here is my dilemma. Should I ask you people that love getting these cards for a small contribution towards them? Would it then be the same? I can’t decide, and I’ve never liked asking for money (ask Jan!). So, I’ll let you discuss it. What would you want to do? We have till the end of the month to decide what happens with my beloved Christmas cards. Then I’ll take the decision and let you know.

PS: yes, I know it’s not been Halloween yet and here I am talking about Christmas. But we know these things take time to make and to arrive to their destinations, so I do need to do it well in advance!

    Me! I want! ;)

  2. Do you have any affinity with Photoshop or another graphic program? If so you could make an alternative ‘e-card’ to send. It would still be your own work but without cost. You could also make one work and scan that one in and personalize it in Word for everyone. Just some idea’s. Don’t let money get in the way. I don’t have money either.

    misschien moesten we de rollen eens omdraaien, en dit jaar naar jou een leuke zelfgemaakte kaart sturen!
    ik ben alvast kandidaat om je er eentje te sturen, als je me je adres geeft zorg ik voor de rest!
    als je dit wil natuurlijk!
    have a nice day
