Like it or not, Christmas is right around the corner. For several years now, I’ve done Photo Christmas Cards, and my go-to vendor is Shutterfly. They have a great selection of styles, shapes, themes and no matter what you’re looking for, it’s there, for whatever version of the holidays you like to honor with cards.
Sissy is lobbying for this design, but until she has her own bank account, I think I’ll make the final decision. Some years, I’ve done a couple of different styles of cards, but this year I’m thinking one kind of classic design that can go to friends, family, fellow League leaders, etc.
Or maybe I’ll compromise. If Sissy will pose with antlers and get Gretchen to cooperate as well, we’ll consider this design. Why yes, I am quite confident there’s simply no way that will be happening…
I love holiday cards and have a special scrapbook for the ones that really speak to me each year. I save all the cards and use some to make embellishments on the pages too. Another friend has a really neat idea I think I’m going to use to keep my cards together from one year to the next, since I will admit that I have a backlog and am a couple of years behind. Houndgirl buys those locking, metal rings and hole punches each card and then stacks the cards on a ring so that they’re handy to view. Beats my gallon storage bag per year mess!
