A colleague at work had her baby and sending a card has been on my list all week. I pass several stores that carry cards on my daily commute and could even run to the Union on campus to find cards. But, I had this nagging thought that making a card would be easy, thoughtful, cost-effective, and helpful in using the supplies I have on hand. (Yes, I am still on my cleaning and organizing the house kick.)
Great intentions. I subscribe to the theory that handmade is better and using what you have instead of buying something makes sense. I just sometimes get lazy or too worried about getting something off the list to slow down and make a card or gift.
