The great plans for Christmas always go awry. I had planned to make personalized holiday photo cards to send out this year. Last year I recieved a gorgeous photo postcard from my really good friend living in London. Those lovely cards are beyond my budget, but I had the thought of making my own and printing them at a photo place for 14 cents each and posting them like a postcard -no envelope. I had my wonderful photographer Sister In law take a family photo (nearly impossible with my kids) and was set to go.. but whoops too late now.
I personally feel that since you only can display christmas cards for a short time, I like to send mine off at the very beginning of December, to enable ample viewing time :) This is also important for the many friends I have that live Overseas. I may have missed the boat and not to mention that I haven't printed the cards yet so these digital photo cards will be sent exactly as they are.. DIGITALLY via email :) Plus I also read some website begging people not to send cards especially to work clients (only to very close friends and family) as billions of tons of waste paper/cards end up as junk a few weeks later.
So in my bid to save the environment ;) *wink wink* I hope all my friends forgive me when I send them an email card.
I am getting slightly addicted to making them.. watch out friends I might send you 2 or 3 or 4!! Here are some samples.. of course the real ones have our names on them :)
