I was so happy with our Christmas cards this year. I found an awesome deal with papercoterie, and I ordered these right around Thanksgiving. I love the red sleeve with the black and white photos. It was a major stress relief to have the design decision out of the way so early.
And a letter too. It is my best attempt to be brief, but it is so hard with 6 people!
But I quickly realized I didn't order enough, so I created another card too...which gave me a chance to use our a family picture taken right around Thanksgiving.
Christmas cards are one of my favorite traditions of the whole season. Even though we have blogs, email, facebook...there is just something so fun about sending and receiving cards regular old USPS. So many have gone away with it in favor of the convenience technology provides, but I'm old school here. I love an actual Christmas card. Something to file away in my binder of family cards (that my mom gave us and starts with family Christmas letters in 1981!) And I love the growing display on the pantry door with cards, pictures, notes and letters from friends and family we love!
