Season's Greetings.. on the way cheap....



On so now that we are officially into the month of December.. I can joyfully announce that THIS YEAR we WILL be sending out Christmas cards!!! Still.. there is a small disclaimer about said cards. We decided to send out postcards this year.. we like postcards.. the postage costs less than a candy bar.. and it just felt right for us this year. We looked for sites that we could order these photo postcards from... found quite a few.. were on the verge of hitting the order button when I mentioned Hippopost to the man of the house and suddenly a light went off. Hmm... maybe we should use this site to send our postcards. See, they send them for free.. postage paid.. no cost at all.. sounds great right? Well that remains to be seen. There is a limit of 10 free per day.. so yesterday I started on our batch.. 10 down.. many more to go. The website says it can take 7-10 days for your card to arrive at it's destination. SO.. while I think you should all be getting a card in your mailbox.. that may take a few days and as this is the first time I have tried this so.. it's a big experiment.. please bare with me! Like everyone else these days, we are trying to pinch our pennies - thus Hippopost. Will keep you posted on whether or not it's successful!

Just in case this is all a big (un)funny joke and no one gets our cards.. take a look at the image above and just imagine that there is a really witty personalized message on the back full of love and blessings for each and every one of you.
