I have very little self-restraint, so it's really no surprise that on Saturday, when Mike asked what I wanted to do with myself for the day, I was all like, "Break out the Christmas tree and start decorating! Right now!" It's all still coming together, but let's just say I have already managed to fashion a pretty Hello Kitty! wreath for the front door. It's pink and white, naturally.

My merry mood was bolstered this weekend when I went to pick up the pile of Christmas cards above from hellosparrow (the Singapore artist formerly known as tiny red bird). I'd contacted May (the creative brain behind hellosparrow) a few weeks ago and asked if she'd be making any Christmas cards this year. There were two reasons: a) I really wanted to get my cards from a local artist and I think May is incredibly talented; and b) if you forget to order cards from the U.S. well in advance and are forced, due to time constraints, to purchase your cards locally in Asia, there is usually a high risk factor of getting something with a lot of glitter. (And not good glitter.) Or from Unicef, which is where I've bought my cards in years past. (Which still often involves a lot of glitter, but at least you know it's helping the kids.)

But this year, the kids will have to wait. (Sorry, kids.) Because May has designed a fantastic range of cards, which I'm so excited to mail out this year. (If you're in Singapore and are also in the market for some holiday correspondence, you can pick up her designs at the MAAD market, where she'll be selling every Sunday through December 24. If you're not here, you'll have to wait a few weeks to see the full five designs I bought from her – after all, I don't want to spoil the Christmas card surprise for anyone on my list. You understand.)

Normally, writing and mailing a very large stack of cards would be kind of daunting, but I'm so excited I can barely stand it. Bring on the Christmas!



love the cards!
