2016 Holiday Calendar


“Although here at Good Tidings we think cards can be sent any time at all, for absolutely no reason except to say ‘I am thinking of you’ — without a doubt many of us are more likely to send a greeting card around the time of our favorite holidays.”  Meriah Kruse

I will be painting original cards in 2016 for 16 different holidays —

including some you may not usually think of as “card-giving” holidays,

such as…



  • NEW YEARS  January 1.       VALENTINES  February 14.  (click here to see a few of this year’s Valentine’s Collection)     

  •  ST. PATRICK’s Day  March 16.       (coming right up!)     SPRING (vernal) EQUINOX  March 20.       EASTER  March 27.
