Canada’s Group of Seven = Christmas Card Bliss

I have faithfully sent out Christmas / holiday cards for the past 20 years. Despite taking a super cute picture of my children in late November, I just wasn’t feeling the card love and I didn’t send any out in 2011. Yes, I did get flack from my mother. If only she knew how many thank you cards I’ve failed to send in the last 15 years…

So I was out on what would end up being another unsuccessful trip to find my Father-in-law a People’s Republic of Portland shirt, when I stumbled across these Group of Seven cards at, of all places, the record store Music Millennium. I nearly fainted with joy.

I’ve blogged about the Group of Seven (a group of early 20th century Canadian artists) a couple times already…needless to say I’m a huge fan.

My problem will be winnowing down my card recipient list to 16 so I can keep four of the cards for myself!
