Anyway here I am with the last of my cards. At long last. I finished them yesterday and sorted them all out for posting and handing out. I had totally lost the plot as I have handed out some on 4 separate occasions and posted one overseas. Unfortunately I forgot that I had another airmail one....sorry Michele. My excuse is that I've never had airmail ones before! Then I went to my labels and that was a mess. Since I had handed out some with handwritten envelopes I had some labels I didn't need so I decided to just do another set. But then my programme played me up so I gave up that idea and went back to last years and spent time deleting and shifting. Success - printed them BUT I had forgotten 2 so I added them on, deleted the rest on that page and.....yes of course I did....you guessed....I put the sheet in the wrong way round and got them on top of 2 others. Tried again and managed to get it right...at last.
So the envelopes are addressed, appropriate cards to certain people (well you wouldn't send a modern looking card to your husband's nearly 90 year old auntie would you?) and some even written. All I need to do now is finish writing them. Well no.....I still need a birthday card for a teenage nephew plus a card to put money in for his Christmas and also for his 2 brothers. I need a gift card holder for Poppy, a birthday card for a friend for 28th Dec and of course I still have to make special cards for my husband, son and younger daughter. Nearly forgot I still have to do my DT creation for TG.
Work is awful....on Tuesday I had to put big parcels outside my door in the PO.....I had a little corridor through them, plus 2 full mailbags with small parcels and letters plus a few on my floor. It got to the stage it was them or me and since I had to serve people it had to be me inside the PO!!!
I think I may be prevaricating here instead of making a card for a teenage boy LOL!!
So here are my last 7 cards. I think it's ok to post them as I'm sure my teamies at TG are much to busy to look at my blog!
Now I am off to do that card and get some wrapping done for posting......and how could I forget....write the rest of my cards. I wouldn't mind but there are always some where you want to add a little note. Need to tell some people about Oliver and had a card from friends who said that they had just got a new grandson on 7th December so I need to send a congrats card...luckily I had a baby boy card so that saved making one.
Off to get busy and I'm sure I won't get a minute's peace at work so I can't leave any of the writing till I go to work LOL!!
Looking forward to the weekend,
