On Saturday, December 10th, the National Postal Museum hosted its Annual Holiday Card Workshop. The museum was packed with participants of all ages who spent the day creating unique holiday greetings for their friends and families. We'd like to share with you some of our favorite photos from the day!

Enthusiastic visitors, ready to go, arrive at the Welcome Station.

Perhaps even more challenging than the actual card-making is choosing which supplies to use!
