First, trillingstar your extremely pretty card arrived but you neglected to include your return address! Please pm it over (or respond on lj/dw if you aren't as paranoid as I).

jennlk your card arrived before we left for Indiana but I was going nuts trying to get our cards out before year's end and didn't mention it at the time. Reading the letter was fun as it it's a different look at the family than what is on your and johnridley's lj.

Not that it is likely, but in the off chance you see this, josanpq, your card arrived as well and made me grin. I love the graphic on the front of the card. Such an interesting mix of color and grey scale.

As for silliness, maddiec24, I'm wearing the Santa socks today and I brought your photo in to work with me and just realized the shirt I have on is almost the same color as the one in the photo of you and J. That's making me grin as well.

yeah, the audience for the Xmas letter is very different. :) About half of it is family or extended "family".

J picked up your card (I think it's one of the first ones he's actually looked at this year, as most of them came in before Xmas when he was too busy) and said "hey, I've seen that picture". I like the letter.

Oh! I'm sorry. I figured you still had it since you mailed me that lovely Valentine's Day present (stuck on the fridge!). But I will PM you, no problem! :)

Mr Star did all of the envelope artwork this year. He's a treasure *g*

PS - Also, fingerless mittens? Are they made of that really soft yarn? Do you sell them?

PPS - Also, holy Jayne hats! Love your stats table.

Mr. Star did a fabulous job. I kept turning the envelope over to admire the snowman. I love hand-made art.

Fingerless mittens -- yes, I do occasionally sell them. Softness varies with the yarn. If you like acrylic yarn (which tends to be quite soft), I believe I still have a pair very similar to these hanging around.
