I was asked at a holiday gathering this week how many greeting cards I prepared in December. I think the person asking did not expect the number I offered and could relay so quickly. I may have said 870 knowing that I prepared 750 card kits to share at senior living communities and just had snail mailed 115 card at the post office the day before.
So how did I get to 901?
750 card kits spread across 4 designs to share 3 designs per senior resident
16 samples for those designs which I manage to give away over the course of the sessions
121 greeting cards snail mailed or hand delivered over the last 4 days
5 thank you cards
and 9 sample cards for the January senior living sessions designed yesterday
The month is not over yet so there may be a few more I create!
That is a little over 22 packages of envelopes, 452 card bases cut and scored, 150 sheets of 8.5×11 whisper white cut to line the inside of the cards plus more for focal point stamping, about 50 sheets of designer series paper, 250 doilies and lots of ribbon tied to make bows. I am just thinking back on the supplies I used. I should have kept track! Lots of glue sticks were finished so I am down to my last few Stampin’ Up! glue sticks too.
Here is a photo of me recreated without the stack of card kits that I posted a few weeks ago here. I am holding what I hope to be my last holiday project. These cute socks came together quick with the help of the November Paper Pumpkin kit. All supplies are included in PP kits with easy to follow instructions. So that is why I left this as the last project to stamp:) We will use the socks to decorate the holiday table and deliver a little treat. I am wondering if I can find oranges small enough or will have to be satisfied with the orange tootsie rolls that I used in the neighbor gifts instead.
