Your letters to my girls have been so welcomed since 2001. I think I have nearly all of the letters you so beautifully write and illustrate. Our oldest daughter (now in college) said the reason she believed SO long in Santa (til 6th grade) was because she received special letters from Santa and he knew all about her throughput the year!!! I have put the letters in individual scrapbooks for both girls and they stay out all year. I find myself looking through them every now and again and the girls do too.
I LOVE each and every letter. Every letter brings memories. The girls were always so excited to share them with grandparents and other close family members. Thank you for being a part of such a meaningful family tradition. Your work is lovely.
I am so glad to be able to say thank you for all the memories!! I am grateful I heard about you.
Letters from Santa are by far my favorite family tradition. Each year, my children open their letters, their eyes widen and smiles appear across their faces as they excitedly read their letters. The magic of Christmas appears and they look at me and point out the personalized touches included in their letter. The joy doesn't end there. Each year, when we pull out our decorations, the girls will reread each letter and we talk about the amazing memories that are well documented in the previous years' letters. No words describe how special these letters are to my family. I am so grateful and look forward to many, many more years of excitement when they arrive from the North Pole in my mail box in St. Louis.
Joan is an extraordinarily gifted artist and writer with a sharp eye for detail. Her letters have the mix of charm and authenticity that will make you believe it’s from Santa himself
