Okay, I’m really not working for Melissa at Ardissa. I’m not getting paid. It’s just that she’s offering a special on her holiday e-cards today and I wanted to let you know, and also have a little discussion.
After chorus yesterday, Melissa was telling me she got lambasted at a crafting type fair recently. Apparently some folks have really strong feelings about holiday cards. They treated her like she’s the devil for getting her digital holiday card groove on.
Do you have an opinion on this?
Might there be room for both traditional and digital?
Will we all be going digital in the future and this is just the backlash at the beginning of a trend? People resisting change?
Should we save trees?
Is it more important to hold onto tradition?
Truthfully, what do you do with all your cards when the holidays are through?
I used to buy cheapo little photo albums and put the cards in them, (cutting them down to size to fit if need be). When the kids were little this was a wonderful way for them to know who the people in our lives were, since we lived so far away from most of our friends and family. Over the last several years, though, sad to say the cards just get tossed after the holidays.
What are your thoughts?
Do you even do holiday cards at all?
