then, what about
christmas cards?

The first Christmas card appeared in published form in London in 1843 when
Sir Henry Cole hired artist John Calcott Horsley to design a holiday card that
he could send to his friends and acquaintances.

card history

when did the card
exchange begin?

The custom of sending greeting cards can be traced back to the ancient
Chinese, who exchanged messages of good will to celebrate the New Year
and to the Early Egyptians, who conveyed their greetings on papyrus scrolls.
By the early 15th century, handmade paper greeting cards were being
exchanged in Europe. The Germans are known to have printed New Year’s
greetings from woodcuts as early as 1400. The handmade paper Valentines
were being exchanged in various parts of Europe in the early to Mid-15th
century, with the oldest Valentine in existence being in the British Museum.

  • stress relief

    When we invest focus in making crafts, the activity provides a healthy distraction,
    which gives our brains a break from the usual thought processes.
    When we become totally immersed in a creative endeavour, we may find ourselves in
    a meditative-like state where our worries and qualms are pushed aside.

  • creative thinking

    Crafts are technically an art form on its own. As a work of art, it
    encourages creative thinking and pushes us to come up with our
    own unique ideas and solutions.
    Thinking out-of-the-box also stimulates the growth of neurons in
    our brains, which promotes focus, creativity, concentration and
    heightened learning capabilities.

  • boosts self-esteem

    Every successful piece of craft made can boost the self-esteem and brighten the
    mood through an increased of dopamine neurotransmitter,
    a chemical released by the nerve cells in the brain. Dopamine plays a role in
    reward-motivated behaviors in people as it reduces feelings of depression and
    generates more confidence.

  • learns a new skill

    Learning new skills exercise our brains while the acquisition of
    additional knowledge will keep us moving forward into bigger, more
    detailed DIY crafts. It will boost our IQ, make us smarter
    and more confident to increase our skill set.
