These are not cards, but I'm including them to share with my relatives. 

     Left:  My mother Genevieve liked to do arty stuff when she wasn't keeping us out of trouble.  She tooled leather belts and wallets, and also painted plates and ashtrays, and coasters.  Dad set up a kiln in the basement so she could fire them.   At Yule time, this one hangs in my sister's home in Virginia.

     At right, my nephew Brian is deconstructing the tree in our Cleveland living room in 1982.  Brian is a doctor now.  He and his wife Kristin are making a family of their own.  How quickly the years spin by!
