Holiday cards from Delaware Community School

Delaware School Card

Happy holidays, from the Delaware Community School

By Jessica Pasko

The AOA elves are back to help you with your holiday shopping. We'll be bringing you fun, interesting, local gift ideas for the holiday season.

Today on the AOA gift list -- Reindeer over Albany, birds of peace and happy polar bears, straight from the imaginations of local kids at the Delaware Community School.

What?
Albany's Delaware Community School is once again selling packs of cards featuring colorful designs by students. They're adorable -- and they're going quick. Each pack has 12 cards and envelopes, with two each of six designs.

I especially like the Christmas frog, designed by fourth-grader Danielle P., and the cheery red cardinal drawn by Bella M., a fifth grader.

Oh, and I can't forget about Kquazag D.'s adorable scarf-clad polar bear. To really give it the Albany-feel, the third-grader has also depicted the bear holding a bunch of bright red tulips. Seriously, it's almost disgustingly cute.

Who are they for?
Anyone who appreciates a little holiday cheer.

How much?
$8 for 12 cards with matching envelopes.

Where can you get them?
Ultraviolet Café, Emack and Bolio'sand Midtown Tea and Taproom.

Full disclosure: my mother is a teacher at the Delaware Community School, but I promise that's not the reason for my endorsement.

Comments

Thanks for your post on these cards! They really are sweet. In addition to the three places you mentioned, they're also available at: Scratch, the Daily Grind, the Honest Weight Food Coop, the Little Book House, Cardona's, Cafe Perk Up, and the Albany County Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Thanks for your support -- and Happy Holidays!

These are so charming.

This is the second year I'll be sending these great cards. I just love that the artwork reflects holiday and Albany themes, that they're local young artists, that they're beautifully cropped and printed, and that I get to contribute to a great organization and receive things I really use. Count me in as a customer for years to come!

These are awesome! I got some at the Co-Op thanks to this post. Thanks for sharing!

I am very much looking forward to Mother's Day. I'll be taking my mother to Five Rivers, as has become tradition, where hopefully we'll see beavers on the Beaver Tree Trail
