Since 1974, two years before we moved to the country, I have been making our Christmas Cards. I always pick as a theme something that has gone on in our life this past year. In the early years of cardmaking I drew or cut out fabric for e.ach card. But since 1995 I have been painting a 5"x7" picture and having Kinko make sheets of 8- 2 1/2"x 3 1/2" prints. so much easier! I then cut them out and make my cards from cardstock. In the early days I made about 100 but now it's about 225. I keep the collection on this banner and hang it on the pantry door in the kitchen during the Christmas season. The cards give me a great deal of pleasure as I see them daily.
Hello, my name is Marlynne Joy Snare (pronounced Marilyn) and I am really excited to be jumping into this new world of "blogging". I call myself a "Folk Artist" and enjoy creating with fabric, paint, wood and all types of natural materials. It will be fun to share some of these inside and outside the house projects with you too!
