I’ve got the job of organising the birthday cards at work this year. Everyone chips in £2, and then then we all sign a card for the person whose birthday it is. It’s really nice to receive a card signed by all your colleagues – I love reading all the funny comments everyone makes.
I collected up all the £2s and off I went to buy all the cards last week. I’m being very organised about it, I have a birthday list, a chart for people to tick their names off when they have signed it and a stack of cards in my bottom drawer at work.
The thing that struck me when I was looking for cards is how expensive they are now. It’s actually quite hard to buy a nice card for £2 – most are at least £2.50. I did seriously think about buying a stack of art materials and making 24 cards. In the end I chose not to – I know I haven’t quite got the time to do this right now. I did make all our Christmas cards a couple of years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it was quite time consuming.
Have you found a good source of greetings cards? Or do you make them?
Until next time, Tawney x
