When I envisioned sitting at the computer to write this post, I figured it would be at home, after George's bedtime, comfy in my pj's on the couch or at our kitchen table. Little did I know, Mother Nature had other plans and decided to throw winter and thoughts of Christmas our way far sooner than usual. Meaning SNOW. On October 29th. In metro-New York. This was the scene in our house yesterday as the snow fell hard outside our window:
So it is fitting that tonight, as I sit on a recliner at a relative's house (we are without power indefinitely due to said snow, but that's another story), my thoughts are turned to our 2011 Christmas cards..and yours!
For the past three years, I have ordered our holiday cards from Shutterfly.com. I use their photo printing services regularly and also love their cardstock stationery, so ordering for the holidays was a natural extension. This year, the early snow has me considering our card design much earlier than normal...and wondering if I'll be able to get a good shot sans snow! Here are a few of my favorites designs right now, all so different and a lot of appeal to all. This first design is so much fun and appropriate to all we have experienced this past year and are expecting for next...
I'm not sure how I'll decide until I get the photos underway but, am confident I'll find a design that fits our family this year. Our Christmas cards paired with custom thank you notes will add the perfect personal touch to our holiday.
So, where do YOUR cards come in? Shutterfly is generously giving away 25 of their beautiful holiday cards to three, yes, three of my readers. I'm so grateful and thrilled, and hope you are as well.
