    Christmas postcards - cheaper card option

    Just a hint for cards mailed in the US. You can get Christmas postcards on Amazon. About $7-$10 for 50. Postcard postage is $0.35. Regular postage is $0.55. The postcard stamps arenít the pretty Christmas ones, but thought some of you might appreciate the info if you still want to send out cards.

    For about 10 years, I've been making a PDF that has a few photo highlights of the year and a greeting. I don't do a big letter to everyone. I email the PDF to everyone and then I send handwritten cards (less than 10) or long emails to the people that I really keep up with.

    I used to recycle received cards into postcards. For several years I stopped sending, but the last two years or so, I've started again. Not sure what I'll do this year. I do enjoy sending out the cards, but postage is sooooo expensive!

    Even the postcards are cheaper than regular cards. For people who DO want to still send cards, this does save some $$.

    I am gearing up to send the 450 cards that I do every year for Bulldog Rescue, I write a note inside my name in each one. It is a process, one of my winter time jobs.

    I love hand painting cards for the holidays (New Years, Valentines, St Patrick's, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) which I give to my clients from my volunteer jobs as well as friends and family. It is a gift so I often do small paintings on the envelopes as well. 48383218_10213816576033555_8428354177112997888_o.jpg

    I was just going to post the same thing. I've thought about painting cards. I've thought about a lot of things.
