It may be just me , but every year when it occurs to me that we need to buy Christmas cards , I do one of two things.
I either in a burst of rare pre planning go to Barnes and Noble to pour over the table of cards, trying to pick out ones that we both like and I don't hate.
And I get another box of the slightly or not so slightly twisted ones for my closest and completely insane partners in crime....you know who you are.
I go at the last minute to Walgreens to get some last minute thing and go " Oh Shite" as I make my way to the check out .
Slim pickins at best and oh dear Gaia...what can I say..
Why can't they make cards like the ones above anymore ?
Simple, elegant, non vomit inducing ones that convey a general message of good will and cheer ?
Let's not even talk about the left overs that are on sale after Christmas...
