Halloween is over.
Holiday music is in the air (argh) and holiday toy catalogues are already hitting my mailbox (to Wonder Boy's delight).
Pinterest is swimming in reindeer cookies and holoday decor.
But, first things first. Why not look like an overacheiver and get ready to send a holiday card?
If I'm going to get anything done soon I need to do it before I start making cranberry sauce, you know?
So, this year I am checking Minted
for some photo cards.
Perhaps we'll go simple
. A couple of years ago we had a family photo shoot and had the cutest pictures. I like the idea of a quick and easy photo shoot, maybe again in nearby Oak Glen?
Or I can take some of my non-existent time and make a collage of our cutest family moments? We use Christmas cards as a means of transporting pictures to the less Internet-savvy family members along with a note about our family's news from the last few months.
I love love love the idea of a photo book. It makes me feel better about not remembering to write in their baby books.
Every year we tape cards up or spread them across the mantle. Now, close your eyes and imagine a tree
full of cards and photos.
Yep, I love it too.
Ok, all fantasies aside, every year I try to start early and every year I am still stamping envelopes a few days before Christmas.
This solves that problem… I can milk New Year's cards until February.
What's your annual holiday card plan every year?
