Come to a holiday mail party in DC on November 26!

I'm hosting a mail-making party in DC on Monday, November 26, from 5:30-8:30! Since it'll be the Monday after Thanksgiving, you can come bitch about your family get-togethers with us. We'll understand.

Bring your own Christmas or holiday cards to write, or make some there.  It's a way to make what can be a pain in the neck into a fun activity with friends.  Also, you can get the card-sending out of the way early in the season -- and not feel guilty when people send cards to you.

I'll have some mass-produced holiday cards available, along with supplies for making your own.  Donations are always welcomed, but not required, to use either.  (You can bring your own supplies, too, of course.)

The library is located at 3160 16th Street, NW in Mt. Pleasant, on the southwest corner of 16th and Lamont Streets.  We will be in the large meeting room, which as you come in through the new main entrance, is on the right.

If you're the sort who likes to RSVP (which I appreciate) and have this on your Facebook calendar, click here.

Fun! I may be in Baltimore that weekend visiting family so it wouldn't be too far away! That would be two letter writing/mail parties in one month - not sure I could handle it!!

Alas, I won't be able to make this one. My car's in the shop, it's my anniversary, and we got home from Ohio so late last night that I expect tonight I'll do little more than eat dinner and go to bed. I know, I know, I'm just full of excuses. :) But please let me know about the next one!
