Everyone who knows me, knows I live for mail & packages! I have been like this since I was a young child… I don’t know why but it is just excitement for me. I get extra indulged during the holiday season because of holiday cards! I like to send as well as receive. Check back here sometime next week for my google document that you can fill out and exchange cards with me! I really like to connect with my online pals this way! I do give out the option to exchange either Christmas cards, holiday cards or the “surprise me” option! (Oh, and I ship internationally as well!)
Last christmas was the first year I ever did a professional photo holiday card! I had wanted to send out photo cards before, but no such luck. Never had a good enough printer or the time/money to fiddle with going somewhere and printing out pics and on and on. I have saw some of my aunts throw together some very icky looking atempts in their time! I didn’t want to even attempt something if it wasn’t going to look decent!
I ordered cards from shutterfly, and had the whole family talking! I didn’t get to hear my uncle say it, but he is quoted as saying “You can tell when people buy quality!” 🙂 Then I got to hear “I bought her that shirt” (grandma) “I bought her the pink hat” (david) and “I took the picture” (Mom) Lol, I think I’m the only one who didn’t have a claim to make when it came to the card! (that’s the picture over there on the left!)
I really liked the professional look, and the fast shipping. I was really impressed and was happy to get to work with them again this year! For this year, I’m not sure which way to go! I am so indecisive, and I like to get my cards out the week of thanksgiving (well, most of them!)
I have to get david and myself all spiffed up so we can take our picture, and all that good stuff. I honestly don’t have a theme in mind or anything at this point I guess I better get on the ball! There are so many options it boggles my little mind. The only real requirements i’m striving for are that it is a glossy finish and perhaps an actual folded card, other than that ????
This year shutterfly has gave me 3 codes to share with my readers that will entitle those 3 people to receive a set of 25 cards of their choice for free! I haven’t done a giveaway for ages, but with the help of rafflecopter, i’m hoping we can get this thing going!
