I am going to display my cards differently this year, need to buy some blu tak.

How are you thinking about displaying them? One of my friends in Virginia ran a greenery garland all around her door frame and then attached the cards with small decorative clothes pins, it looked really pretty.

I have a door just near where my Christmas tree sits. I am thinking of using blu tak (not sure what is called in the States, but adhesive putty) to arrange them on the door. I think it will look lovely.

I also use the tacky stuff to stick them down a wall in my hallway. That way I see them every time I go down the stairs..and I go down those stairs a 100 times a day. ;)

I'm going to go ahead and apologize that if mine are late, I'm sorry. I called USPS last night. They are re-sending my order of stamps, and it will take at least 5-7 business days. With next week being Thanksgiving, that will delay them, I'm sure. I must say they were very courteous. My phone dropped the called and they immediately called me back, but before they did, I had already re-dialed. I hung up when they started calling back. Even the second phone call was returned, so a positive customer service experience over the phone.

Jane- No worries! I'm glad you were able to get it figured out and they are going to resend your stamps!

You have plenty of time! Mine are finally addressed and stamped. Will take them to the Post Office this weekend along with some packages that I am finishing off.

Jane don't give it a second thought. I mailed Katrinas already but won't mail others until the 7th. Canada friends never answered if mine arrive on time mailing the 7th so...........

Received another card today! I can't wait to open them so it has been added to my reindeer card display that my grandpa made many, many years ago. I need to get more mini clothespins to hot glue on as several have broken off.
