CTMH Graduation Card

Do you know someone graduating this year?  This is the perfect time to make a special card for that person.  I feel for the ones graduating as well as their family members.  It’s such a special time.  So many traditions and celebrations associated with this time in life.  It’s hard to not feel a great sense of loss in missing out on those milestones.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  For most, this particular holiday won’t seem quite the same this year with the new norm of social distancing.  Parades have been cancelled, bars closed and where I live, you basically have to avoid someone if you see them approaching you on the sidewalk!
