Just two more days for you to wait to tell me what you want from the Mini Catalog or order online on September 5.
Do you have your wish list written out?
Remember to think in projects.
Remember that the catalog will be around until the end of December.
Remember that I am open and available for questions, orders, messages, etc. Monday through Saturday 10 am – 6 pm. You can come see me and ask in person every Saturday from 8-1 at the 29 Palms Farmers’ Market. Please remember that I am closed on Sundays.
Have you ever gone to the post office to find out that you have to pay extra because your card is simply too thick? Did you know that if it is over 1/4″ thick or has tons of bumps (gems) extra postage is required?
My first tip is to make sure the bumps or gems go towards the back of the envelope where the address is not. Second, sliding a scrap piece of paper or card stock in front of the bumps often helps too.
But wouldn’t it be nice if you had a device to measure the thickness of your cards to know if they needed extra postage? Well…for $5 you can have the first class mail letter gauge.
I have these available just for you. This is a guide and is not for official use with the post office. I still recommend that if there is a question to go to the post office or place extra postage on that envelope.
Recently I was creating (I know, how astonishing right?) and found a “new” way to stamp a sentiment. Instead of popping it up, stamping on the mat, or simply right on the card base why not stamp in? Punch a hole (Curved Label Punch from page 64 of the Mini Catalog used here) and stamp inside.
