The Dangers of Working on Christmas Cards

**Updated - my fabulous friend Kim at Homesteader's Heart asked me to link this to her Friday Funnies. You should stop by there for some fun Christmas laughs! I'm not sure what she thinks is so funny about my pain and suffering... (You do know I'm kidding, right?!) :) **

Though I'm sure ALL of you are already done with your cards (heh, heh...right), I still thought I would share this important public service announcement. They might need to actually start printing some warnings on boxes of cards.

Please be very careful as the following have been known to occur:

~ Carpal tunnel in wrist from signing so many cards

~ Illegible handwriting after writing so many addresses

~ Blurred vision from looking at so many names and addresses

~ Brain freeze when discovering that you have more than one address for a person and don't recall which one is right

~ Toxic envelope glue aftertaste that only a White Peppermint Mocha will get rid of

~ Papercuts on tongue from licking envelopes (Ouch!)

~ Feelings of guilt for not putting Christmas stickers on envelopes

~ Boomerang cards (happens when you don't put postage on - see Shannon's tale of woe)

~ Feelings of anxiety as you receive cards from people that you forgot to send cards to

You all be careful out there, OK?!

I don't have much time for blogging today, but I knew this was important to share! ;)
If you have any other warnings, please share them!

Don't forget - Friday is Would you like chocolate with that? and you can link up any chocolate post you like - old or new. Click here for more info or look at last week's post.


  1. I'm being a complete pagan this year and not doing them period!!!

    Ooh chocolate recipes.

  2. I'm thinking that you covered just about all the warnings lol.
    I loved it. I think that should be linked up to Friday Funnies tomorrow.
    Just a thought!

  3. You are soooo right about those warnings. I had intended to do Christmas cards...but it did not happen. I don't know if I even have a good reason or not. But I don't have them done! I guess I will just have to post a Christmas letter on my blog and call it good!
    That really was a cute posting! and my favorite warning is the paper cuts to the tongue...been there, done that!

  4. You're doing the same thing I did today...

  5. Oh, this was precious, and yes, I've had some of those things happen!!

    Blessings to you♥

  6. See, that's why I don't do Christmas cards?!?! Then I don't have to worry about it! Sounds good to me anyway!
