My Southern Customer

Though I haven't had the chance to craft in the past few weeks due to getting extremely sick with the stomach virus (worst illness EVER even though I am not in good health 99% of the time anyway; that's just how bad it was!) that then led to dehydration and fatigue, I did want to post a picture of one of the last things I did in 2011. 

On December 31st, I finally sent a box of cards to Joni, one of my "Disney/teacher friends" (we <3 Disney!) and one of my faithful customers of loveandsushi!  The first card she ordered was on August 6th, but we decided that I'd just set them aside until there was a bunch to send at once.  She ordered all the way up to November 28th, and I was horrible in taking SO long to send it to her (I did include a bunch of extras too because I felt so bad!).  I just didn't quite know how I'd be sending it.

Thankfully, Howard knew what to do at the post office.  I guess I didn't make enough trips to the post office with my mom as a child!  We were able to fit them all in the smallest flat rate box.  Then I brought it to one of the windows, and Howard knew that we had to lift the door to put the box on the scale and to close it once more so that the woman working there could take it.  Haha, one of the coolest things ever.  I paid for the shipment and that was that!  My first chunk of cards sent to a customer! 


  1. Congrats on Post Office success! My mom is a Postal worker so I must say, I'm a bit spoiled when it comes to sending things. I'm sure if I had to step inside one and send something myself, I'd be totally lost!

    And yay for Disney/teacher friends! Those are the best. Thanks so much for the baby oil tip btw! I made my boyfriend pick up some on his way home so I can't wait to give it a try!


  2. Hey Rachel! I just wanted to let you know that I have a blog award for you so when you get a minute, stop by blog! Thanks! -Michelle

  3. Ha! You're too funny! I personally hate going to the Post Office. I can't stand the lines! *lol* I need to learn how to ship from home! hahaha
