do you send christmas cards?
do you write a letter? how many do you send out?
my dad's side of the family always ALWAYS has a family letter.
each family writes a page(ish) about your year and turn it in by thanksgiving so then at christmas each family gets a packet with the entire family's summary of the year...a photo of everyone...and then someone has been appointed to write a story about something that happened in the family history (lots of writers in the family) so that story is stapled to the front of the packet.
it really is a lovely idea and fun packet to get.
everyone's page is there and the photos are in a plastic sleeve all together.
but.... i just can't get it done by thanksgiving.
i gave up a few years ago.
BUT i always send christmas cards.
i used to send a letter and a picture.... now it's just a picture.
but it's better than nothing.
are you one that sends just a photo of your kids without you in it?
why do you do that?
your friends from far away that haven't seen you forever.... they want to see YOU... not what your kids who they never have met look like again.
they miss your face.
and when they open a card from you with YOU on it... i bet you anything they say "AUWWW i miss her!!"
so... get behind the camera this year! no matter if you lost those 10 pounds or not.
your friends miss you and your pretty face. i promise.
i chose my cards from mpix.com this year!
i went through their site and looked and looked for the perfect card to work with my photo this year.
these were my top 10 favorites...
red & turquoise together makes me happy...
i loved the font on the Joy to the World....
this was different and made me feel like painting....
you know i have a thing for polka dots...
i love the circle shaped cards!!
this one would be so pretty if your picture was all in the neutral tones...
wood grain and turquoise... this one i LOVED so very much.
houndstooth? yes please. this is a great simple christmas design.
pink and green and a big bold stripe...AND a scallop edge???? so close to the perfect card for me.
but you will have to wait until christmas day to see what picture i chose.
