We are! This is our first married Christmas (barely!)  I wanted to do a picture, but Darling Husband refused to do them with photos until we have kids, so I am still searching around!

I send out holiday cards every year! I even sign little paw prints with our cats’s names. My Future In-Laws think I’m a little nuts… πŸ˜‰ I don’t do picture ones, though, just nice handwritten cards. I try to find ones that look a little homemade or crafty (they seem more personal to me) and just buy them whenever I see a great deal throughout the year.

I am, I do every year! Im doing picture ones. For my first year together it was a wedding picture, this year im going to put on of us in Greece and England and one of our kitty! I like the photo ones as i keep a card from each year so i know what happened πŸ™‚

 

I have looked at

 

moo.com

kodak.com

costco.com

snapfish

and vistaprint

 

Although the set up is much nice at all the other sites, you cant beat costco. 40 photo cards with lined envelopes for 19.00 πŸ™‚

I always buy my cards a year in advance at the after christmas sales. I got some really cute ones last year that just say “Ho Ho Ho” in bright letters. I embellish with a short note for each person, plus envelope liners and wrap-around address labels. No picture cards till we have kids. 

 

I hope to finish my cards over Thanksgiving weekend. I’m going to order the labels off etsy this week and I already bought the scrapbook paper to start making envelope liners. My mom always did her cards during her Christmas break and would call them New Year’s cards. Her sister always finished them on Thanksgiving while the rest of the family played board games and watched football. I think I’d rather be like my aunt.

Yuppers! Got a head start this year becuase things will be crazy once we get into the new house and I wanted to pay for the cheapest shipping from Vistaprint.

Here it is and the thread I started previously πŸ™‚

Did you do your Holiday Cards yet?

We’re also using them as pseudo moving announcements.

Our holiday cards are also doubling as our Save-The-Date Cards. My Fiance manages a a FEDEX Office, so he is going to design and print them himself. We are planning on sending them out the first week of December.

Here are mine!  Obviously, our names are our real names, and I also added two pictures to the top – one wedding and one from when Darling Husband graduated from Navy boot camp, but I am freaked out about posting our picture on the interwebz… πŸ™‚

 

ETA:  Sorry about the text box on top.  It was a screen shot, and the bubble wouldn’t go away.  You get the idea about the design anyways. πŸ™‚
