Card fundraiser – the fun of old-fashioned mail

Do you use family photos on your Christmas cards? Do you plan to send out baby announcements soon? Or maybe you took a fantastic photo on your summer vacation that would be perfect for a greeting card? Now you can upload your own photos, design your own cards and 33 percent of the purchase price will go to the HPS Network. Go to www.hpsphotocards.com to order! (You have to go to the NanoSnap site through this url or we won’t get credit for the sale.)

Would you like to help those with the Chediak-Higashi Syndrome type of albinism kick off their first ever CHS-branded fundraiser? They are raising money in hopes that one day they’ll be able to have their own conference. You can purchase cards that will benefit the CHS Association at: www.chsphotocards.com.

So, that’s the sales pitch – now for the mushy bloggish stuff.

I don’t know why, but I’m a sucker for stationary. I hardly ever write an old-fashioned letter using actual pen and paper, yet somehow I get drawn to pretty cards, pretty paper and pretty envelopes. Why is that? I hardly ever even manage to get Christmas cards out, but I’ve got an assortment of them from failed attempts.

Recently, I do find I’m sending more cards that actually require a stamp. I keep a supply of blank cards around because it isn’t easy for me to drive to the store when I need a birthday card, a get-well card or such thing. So, I tend to go for blank cards so that I can write my own messages. I was anxious to get this fundraiser off the ground because I wanted to order cards with a photo I took in Puerto Rico on them. It’s the photo above. I can hardly wait for the cards to arrive!!!!
