Elul Time

As I have done in the past 2 years, I am taking the month of Elul as a time to try and deepen some connections, understanding and knowledge about my chosen faith. It is also the time of year when I make some extra time for play...Well it is truly more than play...I use the month to make my own New Year cards.
As I make each one I try to be mindful of the reason for the cards. I use the making of them almost like a meditation.

The only thing that gets complicated for me, is who to send the cards to. Now that I am a board member the list could be very long!...yet I want to try and keep my intent and spirit the same.

Wish me luck!...I have a lot more cards to make!

Thank you so much! I have made about 80 cards...I now have to work on my list! Since getting more involved in the Shul the list has taken on a new dimension!

Woah! These cards are really beautiful. I hope each person who gets your card appreciates the amount of time it took to design each one!

Good luck with your list :-)
