Thank you cards in the mail!

Here is a sampling of the thank you cards Little Boy made using stickers and rubber stamps. They are for Christmas presents and party invites. They are all double sided - he "signed" his name with a handprint, LOL! Don't you think that everyone will just love that little handprint? "Because Momma, actually I am way more better at making hand prints than writing my name". He really likes the word actually!

We still have 2 more left to make, but what was already made by mail time today made it into the post.

He enjoyed making them... they don't have to be fancy, it is the thought that counts. Besides, if I tried to get all fancy - chances are they would never get done! So, I just let him pick out the paper, the stamps, the stickers - and go to it. I wrote the thanks inside for him, he "signed" his name, and off we walked to the post office. Even better, we worked some outdoor time into this project.

Yippee!!! I've been trying to finish this up all week... most of the 1st batch met a pair of wavy design scissors somewhere along the way... goes to show - once you get something done - get it OUT of the house, quickly!
Oh - and a funny thing - the lady at the post office is ALWAYS asking me if I wouldn't rather just buy a book of stamps instead of always buying individual stamps for whatever I bring in to mail. Today I told her - no postage stamps allowed in my house - last time I bought stamps they ended up stuck onto a craft project and I could not exactly rescue them all from layers of paint and glitter glue. Ha, I think she now understands why I always turn down the stamp purchase offer! We can get 2 BIG sheets of glittery stickers at the hardware store for $1 and get lots of milage out of that $1 - a much, much better deal than a book of stamps I think!

Those cards are just too cute! Good for you for trying to instil the thanks idea, too. =) Oh, yeah, I can see how stickers would be cheaper than stamps. =)

Arts & Crafts AND a walk to the post office - sounds like a great day to me.

My little guy drew pictures of pirate ships for every thank you card this holiday- even for the people that didn't give him the pirate ship. LOL! Homemade cards are the best!
