Thankful Thursday: August 5, 2010

This week our shippers processed 9,497 cards! If last week's envelope math holds true, and all those had each taken 10 seconds to stamp 'n tuck, that would equate to 26 hours of labor just in receiving them. However, most fortunately, we're getting more and more packages that are stamped, tucked, sorted, and ready to roll. Thank you all for your diligent efforts to help our shippers out!

This great card photo is one that was found in Sandy's iPhoto, apparently never shared here...so it seemed a good time to bring you a smile! How cute is this? The child who made this has likely made someone's day...I wonder who it was sent home to!  (I love the cookpot hat on his head!)

I know this card! It was made by my nephew-to-be at a card party I held at my house at the beginning of summer. I just called Miles to let him know he is famous. Hopefully we'll be able to get him to make a few more!!!

Congratulations Miles!
