‘the improvised life’ is proud to be part of the second annual NYC Bloggers Do the Holidays, a collaborative holiday guide by “the city’s coolest bloggers”*. It is the brilliant idea of Charlie at Manhattan User’s Guide: bring together an amazing community of bloggers who are wildly passionate, dedicated and SMART, to give their take on enjoying the weeks to come. Check out the sites below for fun and illuminating holiday ideas – some New York-centric, many usable ANYWHERE, like Mommy Poppins’ idea of “experience gifts for kids.” Patel and Waterman’s “Christmas with Andy Warhol” is a revelation. All will definitely expand your sense of holiday possibility.
Our contribution to this gigunda group post is about designing unique stationary-like holiday cards to send by email – with an envelope. It’s our latest improvisation on the theme of making the holidays more fun, less stressful, cheaper, and more connected, with more to come …
