10 Ideas For Holiday Cards

20121103-212712.jpgGetting my first holiday card usually does one of two things depending on how organized I have managed to get myself:
1. Makes me so excited that the holiday season is in full-swing
2. Gets me panic-stricken that I am already behind in getting my cards out the door (or in some cases ordered at all).

Now I should have started by saying I LOVE doing our holiday cards… I love going back through our pictures from the year, picking favorites and pulling together a unique card that tells a little story of the last year. My husband would tell a slightly different story. He would say I’ve had to have cards reprinted because of typos (I wished people a happy 2010 when we were in the year 2010), I’ve selected photos in a vacuum and in an overzealous moment didn’t get buy-in from my partner before clicking “Process Order.” It’s now an ongoing joke–will we need to reorder the cards, and did I build in enough time? This year I am starting in early November and I’ve assembled some of my favorites as I’ve been browsing… So there is plenty of time for a reorder, should it be necessary.
