For the last 20 years or so I have been making Christmas cards for approximately 50 of our friends, family and business acquaintances. Each year there is a lesson to be learned and never repeated again. This year's lesson was to not make the card so bulky that it is classified as a small package by USPS. What a nightmare! To think that I could send this card to Ireland for less than it cost to send it in the US is absolutely absurd. Kudos to the staff at PostalAnnex+ in Yucaipa, CA for hand typing all the addresses into the postal machine. You are Saints. The wood slices came from Rustic Wood Supply and yes, the wood slice is an ornament than can be removed from the card. Merry Christmas to everyone. Be Safe!
