Christmas cards by hand

There are few perks to having an illness that limits your energy - particularly when you are by nature an active person. However, lengthy periods of having to sit and rest can be useful if you can find a way to utilise them.
 Homemade Christmas cards is one such activity. In my days of being fit and healthy, I would never have had the time to make my own cards. Nowadays, however, cutting and sticking paper is a good way to fill periods of enforced stillness. It's satisfying, distracting, and generally appreciated by the recipient too.

This was my first foray into the world of paper-cutting. It was simple enough to be able to replicate for multiple cards, and the finished result was satisfyingly effective. That's another craft to add to the list!

Happy Christmas, everyone.
