9:12 AM One of our favorite Christmas cards came from some friends in Oak Park who sent us a card featuring traditional Chinese paper cutting. Each card is hand-crafted and produced in the Shanxi province of China. The project is sponsored by Evergreen, a Christian organization that provides a wide variety of services for the public benefit of the people of China.
