Cards

Here's a Cranky post about Hallmark cards.  If you haven't read it before, you are welcome.

Now, I don't buy Hallmark cards myself.  I make my own cards.  Some people seem to appreciate them but I am sure are those who think something along the lines of "Wow, she's too cheap to buy a card."

Cheapness is not a part of it.  Google card making supplies sometime and you'll see.  And if you are into this crafty activity, you never have enough supplies.  There are always new colors and stamp sets, all kinds of tools to make cards fancier . . . and heavier which adds to the expense of the postage due.

I live in a small condo, but I have a room that is dedicated to my craft supplies:





I figure the average cost of any card I send is around $250.00

  1. That is funny; you need to make more cards to bring down that average price!

    I would be very happy to receive one of your cards.

  4. I guess you could make lots of cards and sell some to recover your costs, but that wouldn't be as much fun.
    I make photo cards and create verses just for the individual receiving it.

  6. I’m sure that statement is true. I appreciate homemade cards. I appreciate anything handmade. I have never gotten into crafts, but I so admire those who do.

  7. Funny! I'm afraid I'm one of those people who buy them 2 for a dollar at Dollar Tree. I did just send 3 out to my 2 January birthday kids and a friend and I addressed 3 envelopes for my nephew's, aunt's and a friend's February birthday. I even wrote nephew a check and enclosed it but I won't mail until closer to his birthday. Honestly, I don't care what a card looks like but I HATE getting them late.

  9. I adore cards but hate the huge prices, the grocery store I shop I buy the 99 cent cards in droves and get them out very early..That way I don't miss the occasion, no one complains, I sometimes slip a gift card in the envelope when I am able to do so!

  10. I think making your own cards is pretty cool. My other blog friend, Christine, also makes her own cards.
