The Year of the Cards

Without even knowing it, an idea turned into a goal. Every year I send out Christmas cards. This past year was no different. I always like making out cards and I think getting real mail is always something fun! I mean really, who likes getting bills in the mail? No one.

So when Valentine's Day rolled around, I decided to keep the cards going. I pulled out my list of addresses that I used at Christmas time and sent out a stack of Valentines to everyone. I even hand made the cards.

Then St. Patrick's Day popped up and I saw some really cute cards in a store and decided to buy them to send out. I got out my trusty list and addressed them and sent them off on their way. At this point, I figured either my recipients were either getting really annoyed with all the mail I was sending them or it was putting a smile on their faces. I got a few messages from friends telling me that they really liked them so I decided to continue with the card tradition...

That's when Easter came up on the calendar. Thanks to Hobby Lobby I found just enough sets of cards to be able to send out Happy Easter notes. Once Easter was over, I started looking at the calendar and realized that there really isn't anything until Memorial Day and can you even send a card for that?

So if you are of the people that receives cards from me, have no fear... I'm sure you'll see another one in your mailbox soon! Not getting cards from me and want one? Shoot me your name and address and consider yourself on the list! I mean really, who doesn't get excited about real mail that isn't a bill?!

That's so nice that you're sending cards for every holiday. I'll send you my new address, one where mail gets to my much faster and doesn't cost me, in case you ever feel like sending something to Cambodia!

I've always wanted to be better at card writing. My best friend is THE BEST. She finds the perfect card and writes the most poetic notes inside. It always means the world. What a great hobby!

I miss the days of letters and cards (and I swear I'm not that old!!) Love that you are bringing the cards back into style!

I totally agree - getting cards in the mail is SO fun. And even more so when they are unexpected.

How's that other project coming along? Did I miss an update on the blog?
