Don’t stone me, but even though it’s not even Halloween I am about to talk about Christmas. Some of you probably shun all things Christmas until after Thanksgiving but it’s my favorite holiday, I want it to last as long as possible, so as far as my blog is concerned Christmas has arrived!
I like almost everything about Christmas including the gifts, shopping, delicious food and cookies, holiday music, lights, and family getting together. I also really love sending and receiving Christmas cards. One of my only serious crafty hobbies is making cards, and I actually have done that several times in the past for Christmas, but it’s a huge undertaking and I obviously do not have that kind of time anymore. Besides, all anyone cares about now is Meredith, so we want to send out a photo card with her picture on it.
I’m so happy to be partnering with Shutterfly this year for my holiday cards. I’ve heard great things about them (my mom used them to make a photo book from our wedding), and they have so many choices it’s kind of ridiculous. I have spent WAY too long picking out our design, choosing pictures, and editing.
I had specific criteria for my card: one main photo, must be flat because I don’t want to have to write anything (hey, it’s either that or don’t send cards at all), stationery paper, simple. These were some of my finalists, but it was hard to narrow it down. I’ll be placing my order this week!
Oh, and merry Christmas. ;)
