{raises hand...} Nope - mine aren't finished either! I usually send about 200+, but so far only about 75 have actually been written & posted this year. I was thinking to finish them up in the next week... maybe...

I totally didn't finish either. I think I got to K. I don't think I'm finishing them either. I have a huge pile of penpal mail to respond to and I think, at this point, I'd rather just spend my time responding to those. In other news, I failed LESS than less year. Cheers! Happy New Year!


Yes, mine are done. However, I only sent 15 and I started the week after Thanksgiving. My goal was to use up my card inventory which I pretty much did, then I bought some new cards for next year.


whenever a letter arrives....it's a good thing♥


Let's see, of my holiday card list of a couple-dozen family members and friends, I've sent out ... let's see, add those up ... one.

I'm really no good at this. =(

(On the plus side, the one I sent out was in a fountain pen care package that included a Pilot Metropolitan, a 30ml bottle of Diamine Imperial Purple ink, and a selection of notebooks and stationery. So I've at least empowered a letter writer.)


Oh my god - this makes me feel so much better! I have a few to send too. Happy New Year cards!


NOPE! But mine are New Year's cards since I am an atheist and the people I'm writing to come from all kinds of backgrounds. So ... I'm slightly less late than if I was aiming for 12/25, but still late, late, late.


This is why I send non-holiday-specific "Winter" cards. If it arrives anytime from November to February, I'm set!
