Handmade Love: Update

I received many kind words in regards to my recent post, Handmade Love, about my mother’s annual Christmas cards.

These cards were completed each and every Christmas beginning in 1972, the year she and my father were married, up until last year.  This year, my father, brother, sister-in-law, nieces and nephew finished the Sakai family Christmas card on her behalf, as she, the glue to our family, passed unexpectedly on October 22nd.

You can read Part One of Handmade Love here.

Since sharing her story, I have been asked to share with you each of the 42 cards in her collection.

Please enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas.
