Welcome December 2020 - I love to mark Advent with my own sort of calendar, counting down to Christmas. In the past, I have celebrated marvellous trees, Christmas firsts, an Advent alphabet and even much maligned fruit cake. In 2019, I completed #the100dayproject by creating collages on used envelopes. For this series, #25envelopes, I am revisiting that idea with of course, a Christmas theme.
"Tree of Joy ": 2/ #25envelopes - Wilma Simmons
2 December : Tree of Joy ... For 47 years, the Rotary Club of Wallsend-Maryland has conducted its annual community service Christmas project, " Tree of Joy ' and during that time, it has grown from distributing a few gifts to a major community fundraising with food hampers, children's and adults' gifts being distributed to those in need. Last year, over 1,000 families were supported at Christmas , with the total value of donations estimated at approximately $50,000 . This envelope was created using a "Rotary Down Under" used envelope, with gel plate printed paper and a very appropriate Christmas stamp, entitles "Joy"
Both of these envelopes, for the first two days , were fun to create, and I have the materials, so I hope I will be able to continue and complete this series - #25envelopes . Watch this space daily for updates.
