Christmas Cards

We need artwork for these new products. Any form of  drawing or painting, be it crayon, colored pencil, water color, oil, chaulk, is fine. Pictures of landscape, seascapes, gardens, homes, flowers, still lifes, fruits, vegetables, wildlife, pets, beaches, boats, or whatever you would like are great. And for Christmas Cards: trees, wreaths, creches, angels, stars, landscapes, again, anything that you love about Christmas.

We do not need originals – copies are fine. Send them to UMC, 57 Pond Street, Osterville, MA 02655 or drop them off in our new mailbox next to the Solarium door. The more the better. All types of artwork count – kids drawings too. We can’t do this without you. Please send in your submissions. We hope this will be an exciting new project.
