Enter my time saving idea. Normally, I write a note to each person on my list and it's usually very similar from one card to the next. Tonight, I typed up a Christmas letter. Now, that's not a big deal because people have been sending typed Christmas letters for ages. What I did that's a bit different is that I formatted my document with two columns and page margins 6" on the top and .5" on all other sides. This gave me a card base that I could print out that already had the entire message inside except for the salutation and my signature. I just put one per page for simplicity and as I cut them down, I'll keep the other half to build up a stack of card bases for OWH. Yay!
