Busy Hands Are Happy Hands!


I took a short breather this weekend from card making.  I mailed out almost all my Thanksgiving cards on Thursday with the remaining cards on Sunday.  I have a bad feeling though that I either sent a few people more than one card or I forgot someone. My apologies if this is so.  I thought I'd written down whose were mailed on Thursday but I didn't and then the last cards were sent to who I thought didn't get one.  I really need to get better organized.

After my short craft sabbatical, I started on making my Christmas cards.  I'll be using the above materials: stars, snowflakes, gems, golden thread, burlap, card stock,  and envelopes.  I haven't chosen the stamps that I will be using yet.  I will, however, make sure I make a mailing list and check it twice!  I am hoping to mail them in early December!

Do you send out Christmas cards?
If so, when do you usually mail them?

  1. Hi Gina!

    Loved my card!! Oh my goodness, it was adorable!

    I only send, Christmas cards to those who live outside of where I live, basically those who live outside the state. I have a large family who all mostly live in Idaho, so it's just more cost effective for me. Although, I love receiving cards!

    Thank you again!

    Hugs and Love,
    Barb

    1. Arlene, I love snail mail. The price of stamps has gone up but to me it is worth sending a little something that can be held and treasured. xx

  3. You are right on with your cards, I just today started my Thanksgiving card for my daughter and hope to get one made for one of my sisters and my sister in law. I have only made a couple Christmas cards so far, I usually try to get them all done by Christmas and mail them as I make them, if I don't get everyone on my list finished by Christmas they get a New Years card.

    1. Connie, I put my cards aside to work on something else (which I will share soon). I hope to have my cards out early December-ish.

  4. How sweet of you to mail out handmade Thanksgiving cards! Your Christmas cards will be amazing too, I love the elements you have chosen to make them! It is hard to believe the holidays are now upon us! I usually do a photo Christmas card now but I used to always make handmade Christmas cards. It is good that you were getting a jump-start on it all!

    1. Marilyn, the holiday bug has bit me and I'm determined to get my Christmas cards done and mailed in early December. In the past, sometimes I've mailed them after Christmas.
