My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

My Alternative to Holiday Paper and Ecard Greetings


I haven’t sent out paper holiday cards in a lot of years but up until this year, I still sent many, many ecards, at this time of year.

I thought I’d try something different and more personal, this time around and here’s what I came up with:

holiday haiku 2012

A larger version  (WP is compressing this a lot for some reason!!!) of this photo/haiku along with a PDF copy of my Cranberry Mandarin Orange Loaf (click for recipe) attached.

Click on the photo to see the full-sized version.

I just got started sending these out in the past two days and already I’ve had so many friends and business contacts tell me how much they enjoyed my personal holiday  “package” greetings! 😉

Perhaps I’ll inspire you to try something new this year when it comes to sending holiday wishes?

Happy Holidays! 🙂
