I know, I know, "Too soon!" you are thinking, but if you have to send the volume of cards that I send, you should have started this two months ago. Fortunately, Margaret of Paper Pastries is on top of things! She's released a fine and dandy rubber handstamp to dress up any ol' envelope with bright holiday cheer.
In keeping with the holiday spirit, Margaret is giving away one of these stamps to a lucky L.W.A. reader. Leave a comment here with your favorite thing to do with holiday cards, either sending or after you've recieved them. One random winner will be selected next week.
**We have a winner: Mari, commenter No.8 as choosen by random.org. She said, "I usually take a photo of one of my cookies, adhere it to a plain card and write - by hand, of course! - my greetings on the other side. The picture is usually of an animal from the Chinese Zodiac, so this past year's Christmas/Year-End card featured a rabbit in s suit with a monocle. (Mr. Rabbit is in the banner of my blog) Because it's so expensive to send boxes of cookies to friends and clients I find this is always nice way to share some of my baked goods and my greetings."**
What's more, she's also offering a discount code for everybody. You'll get 15% off your entire Paper Pastries order if you put in the coupon code "LWA". The code is good until December 17th, 2011. That Margaret, she's so nice!
