A last-minute Target run and recycling for thank you notes

15 Dec

I’ve just finished packaging up five orders. I might have finished 45 minutes ago if I wasn’t a dingbat.

A friend and I painted pottery after work to celebrate her birthday, so I didn’t get home tonight until after 8. When I started to gather everything to do my mass packing, I realized something: I had only three envelopes left. ((facepalm))

But I had just changed into my pajamas! And my fluffy blue slipper socks!

Like that stopped me. I just kept my coat on at Target and wore my boots over my socks. No one seemed to notice the thick pale pink fleece pj pants.

I usually write thank you notes to those who purchase from Jaclyn1423, but my regular pink and gray cards didn’t seem right for the season. So I found a stack of old Christmas cards, read my friends’ sweet notes one last time and ripped the front off them. I stamped my “Jaclyn1423.etsy.com” stamp centered at the top and wrote my thank you notes that way. Festive AND green.

Today’s orders are headed to:

  • Hilliard, Ohio
  • Louisville, Kent.
  • Fort Myer, Virg.
  • Hamilton, Ohio, and
  • Carmel Yosef, Israel.

That last one makes me very giddy. That would be the sixth country to receive goodies from Jaclyn1423!

    Very cool that your things go all over the world! I;’m still waiting for a purchase from someone who doesn’t know me… Beggars can’t be choosers, eh?

    And I love the recycled Christmas card idea. Perfect for something like this!

I'd love to hear what you think!
