So now comes the time of year when I write a post in order to get some free Christmas Cards. This year, I’m ordering my cards from Tiny Prints. I’ve been agonizing over which of their cards to actually ORDER, because I like to agonize over this type of decision, and all of their choices make the agonizing all the more, well, agonizing.
I’m not yet sure which card I’ll choose, but I’m drawn to ones that have spots for several photos. I’ve played around with this one:
I like the message on this one:
I love the clean lines of this one (but the message might be a little to hokey for me?):
I really love this one even if it means only using one photo:
This one might work, with a family photo and then individual photos of the kids:
These are only a small portion of the cards that I’ve added to my favorite list over there! AHHH! How will I ever decide? (Don’t even get me started on the photo books that I have yet to make.) There are many, many, many other option available if you go here.
This year is especially fun to plan and create our holiday cards because we have a NEW BABY to show off (no, I DIDN’T do birth announcements, why do you ASK?). Even though social media makes photo sharing so easy, I still want to “introduce” her with our card this year. And as much fun as cards are to send, they are even MORE fun to receive. I hang them all up on our french doors between our dining room and living room. They usually stay up until February or March because I love to look at them, especially the photos.
Do you usually send holiday/Christmas cards? Just a card? A photo card? A letter too? I like to send photos and a letter, but some years I simply cannot get a letter together. So far this year I haven’t made it past the dithering over the card choices yet, so we’ll see.
