roundin' off the xmas cards

(patterned paper: basic grey, dcwv, love elsie +vintage sheet music; glitter snowflake stickers: martha stewart; snowflake rub-ons: american traditional designs; other: basic grey chipboard reindeer used as template, vintage gold metallic rickrack, colorbox inks, foam tape)

yes. MORE circles. which-uh huh--needed to be sent in special oversized envelopes. have i mentioned how lucky i am to be married to a man who never ever says things like, "how much will THESE cost to mail?!" or even, "do you seriously think you NEED more supplies??!?!?" for that matter.

yep, LHJ is the kind of guy who, when he sees you warming up to write out 50+ xmas cards, he'll go and get a tiny piece of wet sponge so he can seal your envelopes. (without being asked, i might add; he just does it!) and he'll affix all your stamps and mailing labels realllllllllly neatly, so they are parallel to the edge of the envelopes. even though he personally does not need such things to be lined up parallel to the edge of envelopes. and if it turns out some of your cards DO need to be mailed in bigger envies...or just that they seem slightly heavy...he will go & get the postage scale out and weigh
(just in case!)

and that, darlings, is just one teeny tiny reason he is known as
(tho as a matter of fact he IS rather handsome, also!)

    Sounds like you've got a real peach of a guy! I have to say I feel pretty lucky myself, mine's pretty supportive of my addiction, err, I mean hobby.

  6. I am SOOO jealous! No matter what the subject - the first words out of my husband's mouth are usually what does it cost! (Not that that has stopped me mind you!) LHJ sounds like a perfect match for you - very kind and thoughtful. Treasure him! debb
