They're here!

The cards have arrived, the envelopes actually came in the same delivery (yeay!), and my mom (visiting from Rwanda, where she lives and works) showed up just a few hours later.  Whew!

The cards look great.  The stock is nice and heavy, the printing is all I could hope. 

Mom and I sat down at the kitchen table, and assembled orders last night, and now I have two towers of priority boxes awaiting shipping labels. 

The biodegradable cellophane bags I ordered to package them in arrived several days ago.  I was bummed to see that they were too small (I knew it would be close when I ordered them).  I've had to send them back and order larger, but in the mean time, what to do for these orders?? 

Plan B!  The paper I intended to print the bag flaps on, to staple onto the cello bags, I instead printed in strips to make belly-bands to wrap around the 5- and 10-packs of cards.  Voila!  Less packaging = more green!  :D  I even used the packing paper that came with the cards and envelopes to pad the cards in their priority boxes.  Re-using = more green!

Now, my printer is almost out of ink, and I need to print shipping labels.  :P  Off to the shops!
The orders go out TODAY!
