Off Topic...

Not weaving, not food... I'm talking ecards. I just have to give a little plug for the most wonderful ecards you've ever seen. If there were such a thing as artisinal ecards, these would be them.

They are created by Susan of Visual-Voice.net, a great blog with beautiful photos and gentle thoughts. I became aware of her blog and Banjo Bunny ecards through her Advent Calendar, an amazing creation which can only be viewed during advent. (I read somewhere that it will work if you change the date on your computer, but I haven't tried that.)

Her ecards appear to be based on vintage cards and postcards, to which she has added animation, music, and humor to create something truly unique. There are four cards available at the moment: a St. Patrick's day card, a birthday card, a "Be Mine" card, and an "Olive You" card. The only price for sending a card is that you'll be added to the Banjo Bunny mailing list, which will bring you a monthly newsletter.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day - better hurry!

Thanks for the tip Alanna - I hadn't heard of her before.

Hi Jocelyn - nearly every one either makes me chuckle or utterly charms me.

Thanks so much for sharing, Cathy. I've never been able to find a good ecard site, so kept falling back on Hallmark and have been in danger a few times of almost sending the same card to a person twice--or, worst, sending the same card that that person sent to me! And I love the cards!

Hi Rachel! She has a very small collection right now, but they are just so wonderful. I've had trouble finding cards I like too, I can't remember if I had looked at Hallmark or not. I'll have to go take a peek now!
