End of Year Posts

Just to let you know, I've posted the last of 2011's personal history prompts in my Examiner articleCLICK HERE to check it out.  Many thanks to Amy Coffin for authoring this series and to Thomas MacEntee at GeneaBloggers for hosting it on his site.

I hope to be launching some new programs and CDs this coming year dealing with healing the pain of dysfunction, heartbreak and stress in families.  For anyone interested in creating positive change in their family line, make sure to JOIN THE QUEST at Family Tree Quest .  When you leave your email, I will mail you a link for the free family tree I designed.  It is perfect for all families--even blended (step) families and single parents.

Also, don't forget to check out lots of heritage-friendly gift ideas by CLICKING HERE.

Christmas Cards?

I love making connections with old friends at Christmas.  Even tho others have dropped the tradition of sending Christmas Cards, it's one thing I still value.  The expense, however was getting more than I could bear.  I would send a MINIMUM of 75 cards.

Last year, I decided to send most of my cards via American Greetings.
I've also loved receiving photo cards via Smilebox.

I recommend them both.  The free options are nice, but I finally subscribed to American Greetings.  They let me send cards all year for a VERY low price. (I even post birthday greetings to Facebook and love the convenience).

Hope to get my "cards" out this weekend.  How about you?
