It's Christmas Seal Time!
One of the ways I feel older is when I remember something from my childhood that is now becoming obsolete. It's weird when you realize that the world is changing, especially when it feels like a whole bunch of new inventions or ideas are pushing out the old ways pretty rapidly.
Take Christmas Seals, for example. I haven't seen a Christmas Seal in ages - have you? Yet as a kid, it seems like they were the little stamp that held together the top and bottom flaps of every Christmas card envelope!
These days there are so many different ways to keep people mindful of charities around the holidays, and so many of us don't write Christmas cards anymore. It makes me wonder how many more years of Christmas Seals we have. Maybe in the future we'll just send them via text!
Because they're seasonal I don't have artwork using these beauts (yet!), but maybe I'll try one today. In the meantime, Happy Holidays to you and yours!
UPDATE: I finally made an ATC with my Christmas Seals yesterday (12/9)! :D Here it is:
