My mother went through various phases of crafting. She exhibited some addictive/creative behavior!
One of those phases was with handmade cards, using some heavy plastic-like material and a tracing tool to make an impression on the plastic. She then colored the raised portion of the card. The process took time and patience!
She had some name for this, which I have long since forgotten. [UPDATE: Sister Karen tells me it’s tarjeta. I find very few hits for this word on line, but it appears to be a Brazilian and Argentine craft.]
Mom’s 1993 Christmas card was handmade, and I cherish it.
This clipping from the local Blue Springs newspaper announces my appointment in 1993 to the adjunct faculty at Graceland College in Iowa. I taught part-time there for three years, whilst also teaching at the local community college and at the University of Central Missouri (as lecturer in music).
