...that "most wonderful" time. Of course I'm talking about the time to send out Christmas cards!!
I'm that annoying person that sits down the day after Thanksgiving, completes all of her cards, and gets them in your mailbox by December 1st. I love getting my cards out early every year.
One problem that I have with cards is that its hard to find a pretty, yet young looking religious card. They either look old and stuff, or cartoonish like for a child. Since I celebrate Christmas as the birth of my Savior, I want my cards to reflect that.
In the past I've done more of a letter type card. Not the kind with my past year's ventures, just one with a nice piece of clip art and my favorite Christmas Bible verses. The first year of marriage we did a picture card, since we were newlyweds and could be sappy like that.
But who's to say in for our 3rd married Christmas we can't be sappy too?
When I found out about Shutterfly's Holiday Promotional campaign, I started thinking about all the different pictures I could use.
With this design, we could include pictures of us in various facets of our lives - dressed up, casual, just chillin, with family. This one would mean getting dressed up for a nice family picture. Even though we're just two people - no kids, no pets - we're still a family. Last night would have been the perfect opportunity, if my husband would have cooperated.
Although I must say, I really do like the wall calendar idea. I somehow doubt, however, that my mother-in-law would enjoy a calendar full of my race photos. If children ever come in the picture though - perfect! On a more serious note, I'm going to ask the Mutant if they would enjoy a calendar full of some of his best photos in the National Park. Two of the things they love most in this life - their son, and a gorgeous piece of real estate!
