How to Send Christmas Cards

Happy Hello Everyone:

Or should I say, 'Merry Christmas or Seasons Greetings.'

Can't believe the second week of August has almost come to an end and for some reason I have Christmas cards on the brain. Perhaps it's because I generally send 75-80 cards or maybe it's because I've purchased a few holiday stamps for this Christmas season. I don't know. I know I'm feeling a little Christmasy.

I began sending Christmas cards decades ago. I think I was seventeen...maybe eighteen. It was the very next Christmas season when I learn how to give Christmas cards. My very first, tax paying employer taught me how. As the wife to a promenate man in Baltimore and owner of her own business, she would send hundred of Christmas cards both personal and professional. I remembered asking something like, 'What are you going to do with the cards you have left over for last year?' She responded,'Well, you never throw them away. You always send your new friends your old Christmas cards and you send your new old friends your new Christmas cards. This way, you're sure to get rid of all your cards.' Since then, that is how I send my Christmas cards. I hope this little tid bit of information can be of use to you.

Before I go, I wanted to share the two cards I sent to my family and friends last year. Both cards were great for me for mass production. I hope it makes you feel a little Christmasy too.

As always, thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery.

Oh wow!! These are beautiful. That first one especially caught my eye. Is the main panel shimmery??

Keva: The main panel is shimmery. The color is more of an eggplant hue.
