Not Your Run-of-the-Mill Post Office

Can you imagine checking your P.O. box here?  Or sending off your mail art and Postcrossing cards here? I received this card through Postcrossing.  It's from China and shows the General Post Office of Shanghai.  WOW.

Team Ginger Sure Can Run!

     Good thing I had a heads up from Pen Thief and LWA to keep a lookout for the Gingerbread Man because that he sure is making the rounds. 
     I spotted him at a 5K Run to benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital.  But he wasn't alone this time.  He had teamed up with two of his cousins.  Just as I approached them, the race started and Team Ginger was out of the blocks in a hurry.  I heard the GB Man laugh and shout, "Run, run, as fast as you can.  You can't catch me.  I'm the Gingerbread Man."
     He was right.  I didn't catch him or either of his cousins.  But then, I probably couldn't catch them even if it was Februrary and they were drenched in molasses.
     This postcard sighting is off to Mrs. Schindler's Kindergarten Class at Nottingham Country Elementary of KATY, TX.  Hey, there, you know this school, this kindergarten class, Mrs. Schindler?  If not, they must be close.

An Equation For Fun

Hmmm, that picture doesn't show up as well as I'd hoped.  So here they are one at a time.

Get your favorite pair of scissors.
Then gather your junk mail, you know, all those credit card offers, subscription renewal requests, and catalogs.  Next, snip out your address from a few.  Wasn't that nice of them to send you free address labels?  But, they're sort of plain.
So while you have those holiday catalogs and store ads from the Sunday paper handy, clip a few Christmas images.

Bring on the glue stick!
Adhere your address labels to the appropriate spots and you have holiday return labels for all your seasonal mail.  Aren't they cute!
