Our Christmas Card 2011

Merry Christmas!  This year we decided to have Brandy take some pictures for us in November.  We absolutely love them!  We did a few outside and then went into a friend's setup garage studio.  These turned out so great and I am so happy we went inside.  Vince would not sit still to get a  family picture outside.  There was too much to explore.  I ordered cards from Shutterfly and Tiny Prints this year.  I can never decide so I just choose two designs :)  I did front and back photos and just switched them between the two cards.

Tiny Prints

Are you working in your Christmas planner yet?  I have yet to formalize mine but with so many ideas swirling I know I need to get it put into one spot quickly.  I also need to drag out my old laptop to get my Christmas card list off it.  I organizede them last year but since Santa brought a new computer I haven't switched my list over.  Speaking of cards, have you seen the Tiny Prints cards yet this year?  Here's my favorite.  I spotted it a few weeks ago and then looking back this week it was still my favorite.  I love the different patterns of letters and the cheerful yet homemade look to it.  I know I've posted some other cards from Shutterfly already this year but I love to get a few different card designs.  I can't pick just one! 

And I'm a sucker for a good address label, especially when it matches my cards, so I'll have to get a few of these:

And to really match all my Christmas paraphanelia wouldn't it be great to have these customized gift labels?!

Tiny Prints has cards, notebooks, calendars, and lots of fun things to look at.  One of my sorority sisters posted her new business cards that she had just ordered from Tiny Prints.  They were gorgeous, very sophisticated, but fun! 

So, do you send out multiple designs or one single Christmas card each year?

Christmas Cards & a Giveaway

Christmas time is coming!  Christmas time is coming!  Christmas time is coming and I've got to order cards.  I LOVE Christmas cards.  It is so fun to look at all the different designs each year and carefully select our family card.  I've been looking at Shutterfly lately (while making my Halloween Photo Book) and trying to figure out which card to use.  I ordered from them last year and the quality of their cards is outstanding.  They are thick cardstock and great picture quality.  Theirs are so much better than the typical photo paper cards.  Last year we had lots of pictures and lots of updates on our Christmas card.  We told about Vince and changes in my job and all about Grant.  This year I want to do something different.  I think we'll just do something very colorful and happy.  We are having so much fun with Vince as he learns and discovers each day.  I want to show that happy one year old spirit off with a fun, colorful card.  Here are some of my top pics.  I don't have the photo yet, so it will probably just be a matter of plugging the final photo into each one to decide.

December is also a big birthday month in my family, so I may be also ordering some birthday invitations.  They are adorable!
