I’ve been busy drawing, cutting, pasting and folding this year’s Christmas card. I think I’ve listened to almost every corny holiday movie between the Lifetime and Hallmark channel.
Every year has its challenges. In the past, I sent out my cards after more than sixty hours of work and they boomeranged back for more postage! Last year I had to add extra postage for weight. This year I thought I had it handled, but the post office was closed, so I couldn’t check the weight. I was about to throw them in the mailbox, then I decided to take them home just in case.
Some of my older cards. The newer ones are popups.
Good thing! I found a major quality control problem. This Santa’s elf has been overworked and hasn’t ever made a cent. There are four illustrations in this card and after I stuffed all the envelopes and glued them shut, I noticed one of the extra cards had duplicated illustrations. Danny and I were on the left and the right. What was I thinking? Another had Kelly and Courtney on both sides. GAH!!!! I had to open every card and check each one. Six cards were screwed up! Thank God I caught the error. They would have been super weird.
I’m blaming all of it on the Lifetime and Hallmark channels.
I would love to send you one of my homemade cards. Want to win one? Leave a comment and my husband, Danny, will pick names from a hat. On Friday, I’ll announce the winners and will link up their blogs.
Tweet this out and I’ll ask my 9,000 followers to follow you!
