Writing Holiday Cards

I've been really busy working on a freelance project. I haven't had much time so I am way behind on writing Holiday cards. I usually try to get these out the first week of December, and here we are 7 more days until Christmas, and I am just getting to writing these now. I also finally picked up stamps at the post office, I just love the evergreens they have on these stamps.
This year, I decided to include marigold seeds in the cards.  What a great way to spread the love of gardening!
The marigolds we grew in the garden did amazingly well, and collecting the seeds is so easy.  I loved this project so much that I think this will be my new tradition!  Have you sent out your holiday cards yet?


  1. Great idea to include the seeds from your garden with your holiday gift cards. That is something I am going to think about doing next year. Thanks!

  2. Meems, what a nice and thoughful idea to send out Christmas cards with home-collected marigold seeds!

  3. What a brilliant idea! And so thoughtful too. Sending seeds that you harvested yourself is a really neat idea. So personal! You're very clever.

  4. Nice touch adding the Marigold seeds. That they're from your own gardens makes them even more special!

  5. I just got mine in todays mail!! I am way behind too. I usually have mine out first week of Dec. as well.

    Love the marigold seed idea :)

  6. Sweet, your friends and family will luv them.

  7. This is an awesome idea! I have 2 gallon Ziploc bags of marigolds that I collected last summer. Will have to share them with everyone! :D


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
