About the Design

comments from paula:

As a fellow Polish gal I was so touched by Joanna's thoughts on Christmas, and her tradition (as is mine) of sharing "oplatek" - a wafer shared before Christmas dinner, as family members share moments of the past, and good wishes for the future. With this piece I wanted to share Joanna's importance of her culture by using traditional polish designwork (this pattern-work is very common, as is using a bird or rooster in Polish folk art), and the saying for "Merry Christmas"... and giving it a modern flair I think they would be happy with. Wesolych Swiat!

Paula, I like how you took the time to add the polish artwork to the card. By not only wishing their friends "Merry Christmas", they can also show how artistic the Polish people where.
