*I’ll bet you thought I was going to do something dirty for the 69th Etsomnia, didn’t you?
Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)
Our poor mailman. Not only do I do 90% of our holiday shopping online, but this time of year, he also has to deliver pounds and pounds of paper to our mailbox daily. When we get home every night, the thing is absolutely stuffed to the brim. Okay, mostly with doubles of every catalog in the western world, but also with holiday cards.
Like the people who send them, holiday cards come in all shapes and sizes. Some are funny, some are a little too hip for their own good, some are doggedly religious, some are minimal, some are way over the top, and some are just plain ugly. I think a holiday card really tells you a lot about the sender, and we have a great time in my house matching the cards with the people who chose them. And like everything else, Etsy’s holiday card selection definitely makes a statement.
As usual, links to the items for sale appear below each picture. However, today, we’re doing something new. Instead of commenting on the cards, I’m linking to the people who I think would send them.
