Christmas card exchange??

Do you do Christmas cards? How many do you send, if you do? Can I be on your list? Smile

Anyone interested in doing a Christmas card exchange? I’d be happy to organize a list of addresses to share. How fun would it be to get bunches of cards next month to have a physical piece of each of our blog buddies in our homes for the holidays?!? Spread the word…invite your friends. The more the Merry(er) Christmas! (You do NOT have to have a blog to participate.)

Can it actually BE that time already??

I don’t know why I’m surprised every year by the first Christmas decorations that show up in the stores. It all sneaks up on me.

My anniversary. Braska’s birthday. Thanksgiving. Christmas.

Four of my favorite dates, all in the last 8 weeks of the year.

Because I’m caught off guard every year, I have fallen out of the habit of doing Christmas cards. I want them to be a regular thing. I want to send them and I want to receive them. It’s a huge part of the tradition of the season to me.

So what better way to be prompted into acting early than to be offered 50 free cards from Shutterfly? Why would I be gifted this lovely opportunity? Just because I’m a blogger. So if you blog, you can get hooked up, too! I know many of you already have, because I’ve seen your posts.

I’m debating which direction to go with the plan. Should I go simple and just use a family picture?



Should I do a family shot with some fun pics of the girls, separate and together?

Or I could go with one photo and a little message, all bundled in a nice flat card… no unnecessary opening and closing.

So many options (and there are TONS more, of course). If I don’t get my rear in gear, I might have to resort to doing the growing-in-popularity New Year’s cards.


(I have to admit… I really like the pic-a-month deal, though!)

Shutterfly has ranked high on my list since a couple years ago when M did a photo book from there for Valentine’s Day. It’s still one of my very favorite gifts.

So I’ve got to get going and choose my design of Christmas cards. Then to decide on the pictures. From literally thousands taken in the last year. Oh dear.
